Missy Gannon did just enough to keep her two-stroke lead over Holyn Handley in the FPO division as she seeks her second Elite Series win of 2024 to go with her PDGA Major title. Handley, looking for her second-straight win on the DGPT, matched Gannon's 5-under effort on Saturday to keep the margin at two with 18 holes to go.



Norway's Lykke Lorentzen moved two spots into solo third place with the hot round of the day — a 7-under effort that included a 15-for-15 mark from C1X putting and an unofficial round rating of 1005, the second-highest of her career as it currently stands (1009 — 2024 DGPT+ WACO). Lorentzen is five strokes behind Gannon's pace.




Ohn Scoggins will round out the lead card at 8-under, tied with Maria Oliva for fourth.

While the FPO battle has narrowed to the top of the leaderboard, it's going to be a race all the way to the end in MPO.



Kyle Klein broke away from a three-way tie at the top after Friday's blistering start for a slim one-stroke lead over Isaac Robinson and two-stroke lead over two-time Preserve winner Ricky Wysocki. With an eagle on the final hole, Gannon Buhr — the current leader at the midway point for the PDGA Player of the Year — made the jump to the lead card for Championship Sunday and is four strokes back, tied with Luke Taylor who leads the chase card.





Klein, Robinson and Wysocki all fired off 11-under rounds on Saturday, one behind the hot round from Matt Orum, whose 12-under day lifted him 15 spots to sixth place and on the chase card.
