Hole 3 at Eureka Lake, a fairly short hole, jumped out at me. There were no Circle 2 putts made. Out of 26 tries. Digging deeper, there were only two putts made from over 20 feet. Paul Ulibarri hit a 25 footers and Curtis Manahan hit a 21 footer.

Catrina Allen and Paul McBeth won disc golf’s richest event in convincing fashion. McBeth won by 12 strokes, blistering the course with a 1093 rated, bogey free, 50 in the final round. Catrina Allen took a strong lead into the final round and shot yet another hot round of the day, winning by eight strokes and cementing her position as the the top ranked woman in the world.
With Pro Worlds going on this week, we figured our stat of the week should be a comparison of the two players who are heavily favored to win. With his win at the Majestic, Ricky Wysocki became the #1 Power Ranked player in the world, eclipsing McBeth who had held the top spot for over three years in a row.
The Pro Tour has three events under its belt. Much has been learned. We’ve adapted to improve the consumption of the UDisc scoring and stats.

We’ve also learned that many players like the idea of a geographically sensible tour and a responsive group of people running the events.
