Steve Hill and Sara Lamberson break down the action from last weekend’s Memorial Championship on this week’s episode of PDGA Radio. First, the hosts talk about Simon Lizotte’s victory (1:27) and if fellow competitors should be scared of his newfound focus. Next, they discuss changes atop the Open leaderboard (6:15), a weird weekend for Ricky Wysocki (13:00), and Nate Doss’ star turn as a commentator (18:35). Paige Pierce continues to dominate the Open Women’s division (22:05), which gave way to another battle between Lisa Fajkus and Jessica Weese (24:53).
Paige Pierce’s dominance of the FPO division continued on Saturday. The now back-to-back Memorial champion sealed her runaway victory with a 5-under par 55 at Vista Del Camino to finish 19-under for the event and with an 11-stroke victory. Lisa Fajkus had a late-round push to shoot a 3-under-par 57 and tie Jessica Weese for second place, while Catrina Allen bounced back with a 2-under par 58 performance to tie with a struggling Jennifer Allen for the fourth spot.
Paige Pierce dominated the 2017 Disc Golf Pro Tour circuit and is showing no signs of a let down for the 2018 season. Pierce now holds a seven-stroke lead after shooting a 6-under par 50 at Fountain Hills and will be in control going into the final day of the tournament. The Texas native's tournament total of 14-under par puts her ahead of Jessica Weese and Jennifer Allen, who both threw 4-under par 52s and sit at 7-under overall. Lisa Fajkus moved up one spot into third place after shooting a 5-under par 51 and is now at 5-under for the event.
