The days of bogey-free disc golf are over for the world’s top players in Emporia, it would seem.
Through the first two days of the Dynamic Disc Open there were 17 clean rounds carded by the field; on Friday there were none.
Paul McBeth came close. His only hiccup came in the form of a double bogey on the challenging 699-foot par-4 9th after he went OB off the tee and was forced to stop the bleeding with a clutch 38-foot putt.
After exchanging blows throughout the second stop of the PDGA National Tour, it was King getting the upper hand on Friday at the Emporia Country Club, erasing a three-stroke deficit to Allen with a 5-under 62 to take a one-shot lead into the finale.
