This morning the weather was not looking favorable. However, by the time the lead card made it to hole seven the sun was out and the conditions proved to be prime for
scoring. The top two cards are comprised of many of the players who started in the top sixteen, meaning we did not see many hot scores from the lower cards.
A few notable mentions from moving day include event sponsored players Austin Hannum and Kevin Jones who are both tied in eleventh place at -12. Austin moved up 25 spots and Kevin moved up 18 spots today. Joining Kevin and Austin at -12 is Seppo Paju who also moved up 25 spots today. Seppo and Austin will be playing together on the third card tomorrow and Kevin will be leading off the fourth card. If one of the players who will be on lead card tomorrow proved anything, it’s that anything is possible from the fourth card.
Moving up to the lead card from todays’ fourth card was the story of the tournament: Colten Montgomery. Earlier this week on The Upshot, Charlie Eisenhood and Jamie Thomas discussed who the best sub-1000 rated player on tour was. Colten Montgomery is showing them why he is a name they should think of first. Colten is currently 28th in Pro Tour Standings after two events and is looking to move up a few spots with a solid finish tomorrow. Colten started the day on the fourth card with A.J. Risley, Peter McBride, and Bradley Williams. Shooting -10 tieing Ricky Wysocki for the hot round moved him up to lead card for the final round of the Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus. Colten played clean golf until hole 14 where he took his only bogey of the day. Colten is tied for fourth and will be looking to secure a few more tour points and possibly a win on Sunday.
Not to be outdone, Ricky Wysocki showed why he is considered one of the top disc golf players in the nation. Playing a bogey free -10 today, Ricky was able to move from tied for second two back of the lead to owning the lead by two throws. Ricky capitalized on Garrett Gurthie’s two bogeys on holes five and six to gain the lead and not look back. Rick also birdied hole 17 when the rest of his card landed pars to further solidify his dominant round.
After 36 holes, Ricky is back on top and we are in for an exciting finish down the stretch tomorrow. Make sure to tune in and watch the final day of the Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus at 4pm ET tomorrow.
