As we came into the final round of the Green Mountain Championship, all eyes were on Sarah Hokom. How can we forget what happened during the last GMC, when Paige Pierce came charging from the chase card to beat Hokom by one.

Hole 18 Saturday at the Green Mountain Championship summed it all up: Paul McBeth needed a birdie to tie the Brewster Ridge course record, and he threw a perfect shot. The disc flew flat then started to fade as it approached the basket.
