If the story from day one of the Jonesboro Open was course records, Saturday was about weather records.
Springtime in Arkansas turned into a winter wonderland overnight and the mercury dipped to 28 degrees, matching the record low for the same day from 1994. Morning tee shots resembled slap shots as players slid across pads, and even when the snow let up the wind did not.
After three days of battling on the Toboggan Championship course in Michigan, the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship presented by Discraft has come to an end. Even with the drastic makeover that the course took in the months leading up to the event, the scores remained much the same as they were in the years prior. In the end, it was consistent smart golf that took home the gold.
