Vista del Camino

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.

The 4 day long battle of The Memorial Championships presented by Discraft began today with the amateur divisions teeing off at Fountain Hills and the professional divisions doing the same at Vista del Camino. The highlight of day one has historically been the action on the final MPO card of the day, typically stacked with four of the best male disc golfers in the world taking on the par 60 Vista XL course.

The largest event on the PDGA National Tour is back and bigger than ever in 2014!  The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft is returning to Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, Arizona for its 26th year on February 26th – March 1st.

Another great day in Arizona as day two of The Memorial Championship started off with a bang. I had the pleasure of live tweeting both the womens and mens lead cards and the story of the day (and the tournament) has to be Paige Pierce.  She is now in the lead by 10 strokes after a stellar 1036 rated round on Wednesday and a 1015 rated round today.

Round one of the 2013 Memorial Championship presented by Discraft is off and running. The Open divisions are playing at Vista Del Camino today while the others play their first of two rounds at Fountain Hills.
