If you have been following the Disc Golf Pro Tour this weekend, you can probably tell there was something special about what was happening at the Toboggan course. On day one the gallery was one of the largest of the season and rivaled some of the largest galleries to grace a Disc Golf Pro Tour event. The disc golfers in Michigan were craving a tournament with the top pros and Discraft’s Great Lakes Open did not disappoint.
There is not much that can top yesterday’s 18 under, but the players did their best to put on a show for the final round of Discraft’s Great Lakes Open. The story of the day happened on the third and chase cards as young players on tour worked to take a shot at Paul McBeth’s historic -18.
After a historic six under on moving day, Sarah Hokom was able to turn on the cruise control today and bring home her second Pro Tour win of the season. Sarah started off the day the same way she started yesterday, four under thru four. She then played for the win, not running any putts and accepting her bogey on hole eight without attempting to save the par.
Day two of Discraft’s Great Lakes Open had plenty of fanfare and atmosphere to go with it. To encompass the festivities surrounding DGLO we have to step back to last night’s player’s party. The player’s party took place at Witch’s Hat Brewing Company and featured a special Buzzz mystery box spectacular which included not one, but two sets of limited run Buzzzes up for grabs.
The first round of Discraft’s Great Lakes Open is in the books for the FPO division. Today had a feature card which included Sarah Hokom, Ragna Bygde Lewis, Courtney Cannon, and Krystal Fromm. The fans voted and expected Ragna to come out and wow, she struggled on the putting green early and was never able to put together a solid round. She started the day with a bogey, and at one point on the back nine remarked that she had not had a three all round.
The Midwest is excited for the arrival of the Disc Golf Pro Tour.
As a premier course in the country, the Toboggan Disc Golf Course has hosted many amazing tournaments. But with events like USADGC, most noteworthy tournaments have only been open to true amateurs. The Toboggan is in Milford, Michigan.
Depth of Field
Ellen Widboom won her first A-Tier at the St. Louis Open, earning over $500 for the first time in her career. Sarah Hokom has won three of her last four events. Ragna Bygde Lewis has won four of her five events this season. Except for a poor showing at the Beaver State Fling, Jessica Weese has gone 4th, 3rd, 2nd in her last events. Madison Walker pushed Sarah Hokom at the Majestic, losing by one stroke, but showing that she has made a full recovery from her wrist injury of last year.
The sixth stop on the Disc Golf Pro Tour is at the famous Toboggan Disc Golf Course home of the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship. This year Discraft’s Great Lakes Open stepped up to become an addition to the tour, and consequently, the Toboggan course has stayed open since Memorial Day.

We started the season with Paige Pierce going 3-for-3 in Disc Golf Pro Tour events and 3-for-3 in National Tour events. It looked like she was on pace to win out the season. Then on the second stop of the west-coast swing, we saw a new leader at the end of the San Francisco Open: Sarah Hokom.
