Shooting under par on the WR Jackson is a difficult task. Shooting under par three rounds in a row is virtually impossible, unless you’re Sarah Hokom. After 54 holes on one of the most challenging courses in the country, Hokom carded just six bogeys to take down the 2019 Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic with a score of 4-under par overall and an average round rating of 999.

“I don’t think I’ve ever shot under par on the Jackson,” said Sarah Hokom, the new leader of the 2019 Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic (HOFC) after finishing with a 2-under par 65. She has, in fact, thrown an under-par round on the WR Jackson Memorial DGC in the past, during the final round of this very tournament just two years ago. In her defense, the redesign that took place shortly after has made playing the Jackson a significantly different experience, despite the par being the same.
