PDGA Radio: October 23, 2018
The Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship capped off the 2018 season last weekend, and we’re diving deep into it on this week’s episode of PDGA Radio! First, Steve and Sara discuss Chris Dickerson’s march from the qualifying round to the title and how the Open field powered through a sloppy final round (3:15). Plus, the tournament’s format yielded some surprises (5:50), with Paul McBeth, Eagle McMahon, and Paige Pierce all failing to make the finals. The Open Women’s final, meanwhile, brought a heated battle between Catrina Allen and Sarah Hokom (11:30), and Hokom joins the show to talk about the triumph and a shift in her mindset from the same time last year (14:40).
Later, Steve and Sara look at the final-round controversy that unfolded on hole 15’s island green, aka #railroadtiegate, and how both tournament staff and players can do better in situations like these (29:00). Robert Leonard breaks down the proper use of provisionals in our rules break (42:10) before Dickerson joins the show to talk chicken, his 2019 touring plans, and time travel (49:25). The hosts then wrap the show by stoking the offseason rumor mill (1:12:25).
