  1. Do you think two days is enough time for players between two big events like the Las Vegas Challenge to The Memorial?

 

  1. Feb 28-March 3 – The Memorial

    1. Tie at the top between 5 players at -10
    1. Locastro stays on the lead card
      1. Video playback does show he was way over a foot behind his marker, definitely over the allowed distance in which your foot needs to be close to the marker
    2. Controversy – Big call by Locastro on a foot fault at hole 12 by Ricky but no one seconds the call.
    1. Simon and Eagle give themselves a little cushion in 1st and 2nd place going into the final round
    2. Paul McBeth did not look like himself as his putts were a bit off and ends up falling off the lead card
    3. James Conrad jumps to the lead card
    1. Nate Sexton hold on to 3rd place
    2. Conrad has quite a few unlucky breaks and falls quite a ways back
    3. Eagle puts the pressure on Simon on the front 9 and ties him at one point
    4. Simon gets a cushion on the back nine and holds off Eagle for the win

UDisc Quick Stats

  1. FPO DGPT Stats
    1. She has a 33% birdie stat while the closest to her is Catrina Allen at 24%
    2. Her OB rate is pretty high in the field of players with a .189 but that just means she doesn’t lay up and it seems to be paying of for her
    3. The stats don’t lie, she is the top of the field in birdies, fairways hit, parked, circle 1 and circle 2
    1. https://udisclive.com/players?d=FPO
    2. Paige Pierce shows that stats matter
