The title says it all folks. Jessica Weese, after three podium finishes this year, has clenched her first Pro Tour win of the season. Sarah Hokom put on a show of a hot round today at 7 under par, but it wasn’t quite enough to catch Weese who held the top spot after day three. Your top three finishers, with scores, were Jessica Weese at 15 under par, Sarah Hokom at 9 under par, and Paige Bjerkaas at 8 under par.

Jessica Weese started the day with a  four throw lead over the rest of the field. By hole 11 Sarah Hokom had a brief taste of a tie first place before the round swung back in Weese’s favor. From hole 12 on Weese extended her lead over Hokom with 5 birdies in a row, till yielding one final, inconsequential throwback on hole 18. Her round started a little bit slower than Sarah Hokom’s but she brought so much heat in the back nine, plus her four throw cushion, that she was ultimately uncatchable. She moved up to the top of the box after her solo birdie on 12 and held it until Paige Bjerkaas took it from the card for the final tee box of the day.

Wow. When we started today A.J. Risley held the top spot at 21 under, behind him by three at 18 under par was the rest of the lead card – Nate Sexton, Chris Dickerson, and Reid Frescura. By hole 5, the tides had turned, Chris Dickerson had moved into first place and A.J. had taken his place in the three-way tie. And that was just the beginning.

After winning USDGC last year with a layup to a tap-in Nate Sexton has had a slow season, until now. Today marks Nates first win of the season, so it must be nice knowing that it comes with a historic payout. Congratulations Nate. Like a true seasoned veteran, he started a few back on the lead card and threw the only 100% scramble on the day. 10 birdies, 10 under – that’s what experience, precision, and extreme mental fortitude look like at Ledgestone. 96% inside Circle 1, 21% from Circle 2 helps you put another notch on the belt too. Check out his drive on 17, is there really anyone better with a Firebird than Nate Sexton?
