Led by Will Schusterick, the American Tour-ists moved up the leader board today in Sweden at the Stockholm Discgolf Open presented by Latitude 64. Playing in pristine conditions, Will shot a tournament best 1084 rated round of 11 under 52, which included an Eagle 3 on the 290 meter / 951’ long opening hole, 10 birdies and a lone “bogey” 3 on the short par 2 #4.
Sitting in second place, 5 back of Will, is Nate Doss – his bogey free 9 down 54 on Järva Park’s Major Course included a “birdie ace” on #4. Rounding out tomorrow’s lead card and tied for 3rd are Arizona’s Paul Ulibarri who had a 54 of his own and Minnesotan Cale Leiviska. They are seven off the pace.
The second card will feature the top Europeans – Sweden’s Anders Swärd who also has a share of 3rd place, fellow host countryman Markus Kallström, and Finland’s Jalle Stoor – plus multiple Major winner Dave Feldberg.
Among the ladies, USA’s Paige Pierce threw the low score for the 3rd straight day – a 993 rated 65, and reflecting her stellar play, she now holds a seemingly insurmountable 13 stroke advantage over the 3 time World Champ Val Jenkins. A trio of Swedes - Angelica Frantz – who aced hole #8 in Round 1, Ragna Bygde, and Camilla Jernberg will battle for the bronze medal position.
