So the question is, did Paige play worse or did the field play better? Well, to figure it out I put together this chart of her 2018 Ratings History from events sanctioned a B-Tier or higher. The findings pretty much speak for themselves.
Why is this important? Because as we head into this new season we’ve seen more players taking the off-season seriously. The training and practice have already produced some interesting results with Paige Bjerkaas taking down her first National Tour win in Vegas last week while Paige Pierce finished 8 throws back of the leader in a tie for seventh. Bjerkaas missed the Memorial last year, but there are some similarities between the course at the Las Vegas Challenge and the Memorial, so it isn’t a bad indicator of how her game may play in Arizona.
