MPO Recap: Final Round

Hole 9 was the tipping point for Wysocki to take control of the round. Anthony Barela and Gannon Buhr threw out-of-bounds off the tee and Wysocki calmly laid his 354-foot drive just left of the basket for a drop in birdie.

FPO Recap: Final Round

“This is a tournament I've wanted for so long," Gannon said. "I always felt like this was one I could get, and to finally take it down is a huge accomplishment."

MPO Recap: Round 3

The course record was broken today by Calvin Heimburg. He birdied 11 of the 18 holes to climb up 40 spots and into the top 15.

FPO Recap: Round 3

The wind was clearly a factor in Round 3. After the course averaged 0.4-under par in Round 2, the wind was the prime culprit in raising that average an entire stroke to 0.4-over par.

MPO Recap: Round 2

Day 1 had four aces. Day 2 only had one and it belonged to Dan Schlitter on hole 7. The Illinois native threaded the needle on the tightly wooded, 325-foot par 3 and smashed chains.

FPO Recap: Round 2

After a grueling first round at Northwood Black where the field averaged 4.38-over-par, Sunset Hills gave the players a chance to relax and attack for some birdies.

MPO Recap: Round 1

The Day 1 gallery presence changed everything. Players teeing off later in the day were welcomed by a sizable crowd compared to those playing in the morning.

FPO Recap: Round 1

“I was throwing the disc very well, but I had some trouble with my putting. I really like this course and I like the shot-shaping here. It really fits my game and I feel really comfortable out here.”
