A nine-shot win would have been plenty for Catrina Allen at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, but an unlucky number proved to be even better.

A crash of chains, then an audible groan of agony from the gallery.

Another crash, this time followed by a guttural scream of “Let’s go!”

Then, celebration.

After 54 holes weren’t enough to decide the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, it was only fitting that the event came down to a playoff between two surefire future Hall of Famers.

It’s no secret Ricky Wysocki has been a dominant force on the course over the last two seasons. Yesterday at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, though, he unleashed havoc during the most unexpected moment: a backup.

If Catrina Allen’s first round was “Steady,” her second round at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic’s W.R. Jackson Memorial Course was scorching by comparison. Not only was her 1000-rated performance the best in the field, giving her a nine-stroke advantage over second place, but it was also the only to register under par on the event’s second day.

After tangling with the ropes of Winthrop Gold last weekend on the way to a season-low 64th place showing at the United States Disc Golf Championship, James Conrad was ready to return to his natural habitat.

“I was obviously not stoked on how I finished out there,” the 27-year-old Virginia pro said. “I was looking forward to getting back into the woods — courses I like a little more.”

Catrina Allen managed to live up to the nickname of disc golf’s founder at the event and course named in his honor, keeping things “Steady” as she took the lead after the first day of the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic.

Airport Info

Anyone coming to the 2017 Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic presented by ProActive Sports Disc Golf by air will be best off flying into Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) in Augusta, Georgia; located 30 miles from the International Disc Golf Center (IDGC) in Appling, Georgia. However, AGS is a very small airport and flights are not always the easiest to find. If you cannot find a suitable flight into AGS, the next-closest airport is Columbia Metropolitan Airport located in Columbia, South Carolina. See the list below for more information.
