Upon arrival at Fountain Hills Park early in the morning on Saturday, we knew we’d be in for an interesting final day of The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft. The greater area of Phoenix had gone nearly 11 weeks without a drop of rain and on Friday night, as most of the population slept, the much needed rainfall finally arrived. What better time to end the drought than the final round of one of the biggest events in disc golf?
After a brutal final day in the rain, wind, and lightning, we're pleased to congratulate Paige Pierce and Paul McBeth for their impressive victories at The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft. Paige finished the tournament 10 strokes ahead of second place finisher Catrina Allen followed by Val Jenkins in third and Liz Dorries in fourth.
Round 3 of The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft is complete and with that brings an end to the tournament for a majority of the competitors involved. The amateur divisions played their final round today at Fountain Hills Park and many of the professional division competitors would hole out for the last time as well. To continue on to the final round in a professional division, you must have an overall score for the tournament that puts you in the top 50 percent of your division.
