Just like yesterday there was only one Eagle on the day here during the final round of Discraft’s Green Mountain Championship. On the Fox Run course Simon Lizotte was
able to card the eagle two on the 560ft par four hole 16. Simon placed his drive inside circle one and was able to convert the putt for the eagle.
Unlike yesterday, today in the FPO division the story of the day came from Paige Pierce. Paige carded nine birdies and was able to convert that to a -5 finish on the day to win the tournament by one stroke. This was the second Pro Tour event for Paige to come from behind to win.
In the MPO division there were three people who crushed the birdies on the Fox Run Course. Today’s hot round was -10 which was an unofficial 1061 rated round. Kevin Jones moved up 19 spots on the day with his -10, which would have been an eleven if he hadn’t carded a bogey on hole 9. He finished the tournament T15. Philo Brathwaite moved up six spots with his -10. If he had not bogied Hole 5 he also would have carded an eleven. The most impressive -10 of the day goes to Michael Johansen who did not card a bogey all day. He pushed Nate Doss throughout the tournament and even ran his upshot on Hole 18 in one last attempt at a tie.
In the FPO division the bogeys started and then wouldn’t let up for Catrina Allen. Even though she played on the lead card all week Catrina struggled during the final round at Brewster’s Ridge. On 11 of the 18 holes Cat carded a bogey or a double bogey. It dropped her four spots to sixth place for the weekend.
On the men’s side he made the cut, but he struggled on Fox Run today, Geoff Bennett. Geoff was in 20th starting today but shooting a +6 on Fox Run dropped him 21 spots to 41st. He carded six penalty strokes during his unfortunate round.
Honorable mention on the bogeys goes to Seppo Paju who carded a nine on sixteen. If he had just taken par he would have finished in a tie for 32nd with Austin Turner.
It was an exciting finish to the GMC this week. Discraft’s Green Mountain Championship was the final stop on the 2017 Pro Tour. Make sure you’re geared up to tune into the Pro Tour Championships October 19-22nd.
