round of the las

vegas

challenge

presented by innova we're nearing the finish line at the first stop of the 2022 disc golf pro tour season at the head of the field and separated by just one stroke or the three best players in the world pierce allen and tatar can the estonians snag the title from the americans tied at the top we'll find out in a couple hours elaine that intro got me hyped you ready to watch this i'm so excited it's great to see such close competition and an international stage

final

ly after you know two years not seeing anyone from finland over we've got evelina in the mix last year kristin was able to make it over for some events but now we're getting truly international competition and look at our top five we've got two europeans three americans the best players in the world at the top gonna be a treat on this fantastic innova course we got a preview on uh friday's round was it and a cat threw down a burner katrina allen with 10 birdies or better...
final round fpo las vegas challenge
1100 bar 11 under par yeah there was an eagle and she had a clean scorecard most importantly so she made all those birdies in that eagle count but in fact you look at the the top 10 women and most of them were putting down seven eight nine 10 11 down on that course so it is potentially going to have a lot of swings back and forth depending on who's putting well who's driving well and again keeping the scorecard clean not making a careless error on this course thank goodness the putting from that woman right there this weekend has been incredible what we've seen her miss one i think feels like one or two circle maybe yeah it's and so many out of the circle going in with confidence and smack in the center of the chains she's just been putting on a putting clinic that drives them very clean possible future world champion here haley king stepping on the box of one haley king from the second card is the only person on that card to have a realistic chance of making it to the podium we have seen haley put on scorcher rounds if she can get hot this round she can advance will step up next it's been great watching holland this weekend she has been very consistent keeping the mistakes to a minimum and cashing in tons of birdies yeah great drives great putting from where we've seen all weekend up incoming talent in the fbo division does it still fade out a little early should make for an easy par though it's really hard to hit the green on this hole...
final round fpo las vegas challenge
it's a little over 350 feet it's slightly uphill and as you can see the ground is slanting away from the basket for the right hand backhand player you are looking at ella hansen having a great tournament ella has plenty of power and she has been putting really well she's taking an aggressive line and unfortunately trying to keep the disc turned over and it keeps that turnover and sell sails out of bounds yeah likely bogey to start ella's day unfortunately next up maria oliva maria's put on a great show this weekend she had some fantastic putts yesterday and she also had some misses and she's starting off with a miss just throwing it plain out of bounds and that really didn't look like it had a chance of going back in yeah rough start for maria you kind of wonder if you maybe don't get aggressive on one you know this whole one i think is really touchy it's very easy for the disc to flip over and not come back you have to put in so much anhyzer that it makes it a

challenge

it really does uh welcome to the booth in milwaukee i'm ian anderson hall of famer five-time world champion and the goat canadian right i was about to make a goat noise but then like i panicked and i couldn't remember what a goat sounds like so i'll spare you that i love it love it we are in for a treat as are you guys today watching on the disc golf network at the home of live disc golf who's gonna take it down today elaine you got a feeling i don't...
know i don't know that's the exciting part honestly um all of the top three women and even all count evelina in the mix they've got the driving ability they've got the putting ability to take it down and i think it's just going to be a matter of who can minimize the mistakes and who can maximize the birdie opportunities i'm expecting to see aggressive putting out of these women and we have seen some fantastic putts circle too even i dare i say circle three putts this weekend so we know the women have been putting on a putting clinic but sometimes there have been some misses some surprising misses so it's going to be a matter of keeping the nerves down and executing the shots uh this course demands precision yeah it really does i had our friends at statmando pull up a page and cat head-to-head so going into the

final

round of their tied pages three to one advantage for paige but you know it's a new year it's a new circumstance it's a new cat for sure it's a new cat she's got an entirely new bag of discs and it's been really astonishing to watch her just executing drives approach shots putts with this new bag of discs typically you don't see a player taking to a whole new bag of plastic so quickly yeah it's really impressive this is ella hansen throwing her third on the par three and it's very tough to run this one because of the slope behind it so i would expect we'd see ella just laying it up as she does...
there nice little bump in run perfectly done from hanson nicest day we've had in

vegas

so far i think right yeah i think it's in the 40s in the low 40s and so a much warmer start than the players have had and speaking of the weather we're going to check out arcana current conditions oh we'll check that out after we show you a holland hanley approach yeah we don't want to miss any action here she could have hung on to that a little bit more but i think she is in position yeah hopefully that should still work and we'll check out our can of conditions as elaine was teasing it's starting to warm up already oh it's warmed up even from when we looked at it a few minutes ago 48 a lot less wind than we saw yesterday of course low humidity because we are in the desert so really pleasant playing conditions for the women good conditions to score and speaking of scoring hayley king starting her day with a birdie so that pretends well that's one of the harder gets yeah she made it look pretty easy that's a controlled great point there's a great spot to grab a stroke on the field if you can oliva for bogey oh oh that was a good putt she wasn't particularly close oh but she putted it confidently so let's see more of that from maria she'll be wanting to putt like that and eliminate a few of those quite short putts that just glanced out yeah she was just teasing it yesterday paul and hanley that is a par for her bogey coming for hanson...
and your chase card is off to hold two we'll check out our udisc course close-up on the end of a course today kind of the premier course on the property if you will i have to say this is my favorite course um it's got a lot of birdie opportunities and you have to work to get a birdie at the longer holes the longer holes are tough and challenging and punishing there's water that comes into play a lot of greens a lot of obs for the golf greens and then we've got those sand traps that play as a hazard so you have to take a stroke and play where you lie so there are a few holes that are going to potentially be punishing or if you can play them just right we'll put some blue on your scorecard maybe some distance ahead of the field on those holes like we saw from haley king on one we are not going to fly hold too elaine hold two is a funky hole uh you've got these short scrubby trees you can't quite throw over them so you really are forced to throw down the middle it is slightly uphill but you can get a lot of ground action you can get the disc low and have it scoot up on that hard pack dirt so again a birdie opportunity with a precision shot haley king looking to start two for two put some pressure on the lead card from the chase what a smooth smooth shot she made that look so easy holland hanley looking to bite off that line that looked really nice thinking it looked really similar you have to keep it pretty low it's about like a 10 12 foot ceiling...
most of the way down that fairway hanson looking to bounce back from the bogey that's a little high yeah that looks like it clipped the very first tree quite high in the first tree i kind of wonder if she was trying to do a big hyzer around there i don't know if there's the room oh leva eagle's been doing it so now she's gone off quite a bit left so she's put herself out of position for the birdie yeah it's gonna be like a circle's edge like let's take another a roll back that zuka replay on that haley king park job i love the fact she didn't try to crush it she just threw it in a very controlled fashion and just put herself like she could almost just like step over and reach and put it right in the basket the pace was perfect you gotta love it i'm gonna take a quick break on the disc golf network back in a few the las

vegas

challenge

is presented by innova the choice of champions oh yeah nate that looks nice oh oh that looks nice it's not nice really though is it nice and all day today pdg event support helpline hey so i'm setting up the most epic event of all time and i'm wondering do i need insurance as long as the events in the u.s or canada insurance is included with your sanctioning agreement okay awesome because we're trying this cool new thing where we have an alligator pit on the 18th green it's gonna be epic insurance or not i don't think having literal death putts is a good idea okay i'll...
consider it now are you still there oh god are you still there focus get ready in any of those pressure thoughts and really center yourself like where you're at and the shot you're throwing trying to just really let everything besides the basket bleed away we've been off the radar in some regards in terms of the high level professional disc golf scene for a few years and we wanted to get back to that and bring in some additional firepower and part of that was bringing in the big gun rick is obviously a very smart player and i don't think he's going to make it easy on anybody two-time yeah world champion ricky wasaki yeah it doesn't look like he's showing any signs of slowing down the las

vegas

challenge

is an elite series event on the disc golf pro tour the official professional tour of the pdga back to the action i mentioned this kind of earlier going into a

final

round paige and kind of been tied four times paige took down three of those the other one looks like cat got in a play off there yeah so that was way back in 2015 ledge stone yeah but you know i i think the past is the past uh i think what is going to be foremost in both cat's mind and paige's mind perhaps is the way things went down at the world championship i would think so yeah much more recent history where under pressure cat played her game and executed an incredible second shot that was that clutch anhyzer one that was almost out of bounds but stayed in bounds and so...
i'm sure she's going to be channeling that when she thinks of a head-to-head with paige but of course we've got kristin tatar in the mix just one off only a very thin stroke off now we're swinging over to haley king on three she's buried the first two oh going sidearm that's an aggressive play over the water really low round the trees is it in i don't have any information from you disc yet i'll let you know we are getting a green flag word from british skin of her teeth oh my goodness but it puts her in position for what would be a turkey oh great point yeah if it made it imbalance it's close and the way haley putts oh my goodness well she didn't make the mistake of doing a sidearm and cutting it in too soon being a little tentative which would have hit the tree and for sure been out of bounds the sad part about well i guess the nice part about people missing cuts is they can caddy for their friends now i thought hannah bloomroos came for evelina i think or at least hanging out with her earlier and there's silver lap as well hanging out with us right now we have our nine o'clock tee time with girl kristen field first up our co-leader at 21 under par paige pierce there's a five-time world champion the use that is a zeus in her left hand it's turned over she kind of yelps is it coming back oh beautiful it was a really aggressive confident throw she lost a little confidence in it for a moment there but then it did come...
back what a shot from paige setting yourself up for a birdie look on one does katrina allen have an answer to that shot yep it's turning over she's taking the aggressive line coming back very well controlled oh my goodness oh it is it's gonna be a battle it's gonna be like that is it sign me up that was cat walking off after a beautiful drive hanging out with her austin hannah over there i got where you helped her with her slight putting change in the offseason that's fantastic austin i think has been a wonderful support for you definitely you are looking at kristen tatar going with the royal grace off the tf1 she's got a more conservative approach that really had no chance of uh making it for birdie however it's safe and that may be her gameplan evelina sullivan grabbing a couple destroyers as we saw yesterday i'm predicting that one's going to go left she loves that super over stable destroyer when you got an arm like her it's just really not the choice on a hole that plays like this but again maybe her game plan is just to get the three maybe she just doesn't like the way that disc is perching on the hill with out of bounds on the right yeah you really have to

challenge

that ob if you want to get a birdie on this one as we saw paige do it yeah this is haley king on three four birdie in a turkey start oh my goodness elaine this this is giving me goosebumps you know we saw hayley king at um green mountain open just scorched the...
course and it looked a lot like we're seeing her look now oh no this is ella hansen with a pretty look as well looking to bounce back from that bogey on one ellis spins at home she's back to even on the day the nine on the event paige looks worried i thought she saw the green flag she does look a little worried she's probably just playing with us maybe she's just wants to see how close it is that's what it is and she's going to be pretty happy when she sees that she's 10 or 15 feet from the basket see our lead card walking down one's fairway 18's basket just off the screen to your right terra you are on the ground today how you doing sir i am doing great it's absolutely gorgeous out here it's a little bit warmer today than the previous few days but everything looks beautiful and as you guys said strap in because we've got a battle ahead of us terry it's great to hear your voice and we're super stoked to have you back today you are looking at evelina from the drone cam really nothing she can do but lay up she's well outside circle too and that's a pretty um steep slope up to the basket and that is henna on the bag for evelina today great friends there kristen she's a great straddle putter but even kristen knows that this is a little outside her range and i'm loving this drone cam new for 2022. and what an asset for a course like this where it's very open uh we'll be seeing the spectator crowd...
getting larger and larger as the day progresses it gives our viewers at home so it's a great perspective on the whole the beautiful thing about being in

vegas

is you know even if you're having a horrible round you can just look around you see the mountains in a 360 degree panorama and it's hard to hate life when you're in such a beautiful spot katrina allen to start her day with a birdie that was it looked like it had all the elements of being a good putt it was maybe just a teeny bit hazard but i'm surprised the basket didn't accept it yeah one of those ones that could have dropped in but just a little left there this gives an opportunity for paige to take sole possession of first place and she's done it elaine yeah she just reached out and grabbed that first place yep we'll have a couple par tap-ins coming from the euros left now evelina drops in hers the tower will as well and while they walk the two i'm gonna show you what kind of day paige had yesterday and she made up uh six strokes so it must have been a good one it was a fantastic day for paige starting with that kind of putt so much spin on it to keep it aloft you can see the great driving form she has playing it off the golf green to get maximum distance and settling in no more than 20 feet from the basket and you heard distance coming in handy on whole 12 thousand foot hole almost yeah she had some great and look at this but this is my favorite putt she is standing in a sand trap...
one foot higher than the other and still makes that putt it should not be doable and then hitting this perfectly you want to hit the side of the hill have it skip up the hill and just crest it total badass look at her look at her that's that page pierce i'm not fooling around face and i think that's the face we're seeing from paige as she approaches hole number two we saw how well hayley king and holland hadley hadley hit that line that's the line paige is going to want to hit as well just a low slight hyzer no don't hit that tree kind of maria oliva territory over there it's a little bit wide um that scrubby bush might be the only thing between her and the basket so we'll have to see how much of an obstacle that is katrina allen she's going to break her here and she lets hers drift off to the left but that looks to be a little bit closer i saw i think i heard it hit that kind of pompous grass right there hopefully it stopped quickly tatar it's a compass from kristen she's keeping it very low but unfortunately hit that slope and well i don't ever want to count her out of a pot you can't once you can see it evelina i think that's a disc we haven't seen yeah i'm pretty sure it's a rock three and that scooters up it's going to give her a chance to put it in oh well we're going to check out our king's keys brought to you by blackie disc.com the premium disc golf store so it's a battle of the...
birdies i think we're going to see tons and tons of birdies these women are probably going to birdie more than they even par but while they're burying oh my gosh the pressure and if hayley king continues to perform as she has from card number two keeping her cool keeping calm is going to be the key to allowing you to get those birdies and it's going to come down to pots we saw katrina have a pot that looked like it was putting perfection yeah but it wasn't quite hard enough i guess it didn't penetrate through the chains so getting those putts in the basket so important and a huge thanks to blackingdesk.com the premium fist golf store for sponsoring our king's keys we're gonna sponsor the swing over to a different king they have the haley variety on hole for that's wildly turned over elaine and that is out of bounds well there stops the streak of birdies yep tatar oh inches low in the circle two bid for birdie that was on point but it was just a little bit low the whole way evelina short left birdie look her heart was not in that i don't think she felt comfortable from that distance so just lay it up nothing wrong with that if you can't get a two or just take a three and that has been the key to evelina's success she hasn't had very many spectacular shots but she's kept the bullies to a minimum and she has in particular executed very well on the par fours and fives cat cashing birdies on those and paige has got that scrubby...
little bush between her and the basket going to the forehand putt never a good sign oh the dad put maybe nope back to the forehand you love the try but those are just so touchy it's so hard to do a cider pot like that um to let it go without it being 100 miles an hour is really the key and then if you're if you don't throw it hard it's sort of wobbly and it's very hard to control the angle now katrina as you called it right up against that pompous grass but actually it looks like she's got a fairly clean look at the basket although she may have a little bit of a low ceiling but a chance to grab a share of the lead again with pierce carting apar and alan will cart apart as well yeah i don't think she had quite the height that she enjoys she likes to have a high lofting pot and that tree was really inhibiting her natural putting style yeah well called there evelina her comeback part pierce the same so the lead court card not scoring on this hole no kind of surprising it's a scoring hole it it absolutely is and tatar will drop in par we're gonna pop back over to haley king on hole four we're gonna show you her third shot after the ob drive yeah she would go on to make that putt for bogey so still a two down start through four holes you can't hate that like holland hanley ran into some trouble as well snagged a five on hole four after grabbing birdies on two and three getting word from production jennifer allen's having a good one...
out there we'll check out that card in a moment meanwhile it's a great look at hole three and you can see how the water comes in in front of the basket to the side of the basket we've got that cart path that is out of bounds to the right as well as behind the basket so it really is an island of 270 feet that you want to hit you saw that jen allen no par so far and learning from last time going nice and wide getting around that tree that's out of bounds maybe oh it's back in no way terry that's it isn't it terry ah guys this is gonna be a really tough call man as i'm looking at it the official in me says that's going to be out of bounds but it will be a conversation for sure oh my goodness drama early katrina allen katrina goes super wide throwing the quake there stable yeah overstable mid-range the quake parking it lovely stuff tatar she's going harp here and she corrects the error she made first time right oh terry you got word on that one yeah that one did check up on the bank and it is safe just barely likes it wow i she was well around there i don't think she threw it hard enough i agreed it's 270 feet and when you go wide like that you have to throw it like it's about 310. evelina i'm worried evelina throws discs that are too stable terry does that have a chance no that doesn't have a chance yeah it looked like it fell into the water but she'll at least have to double check be sure and we got the patented...
hyzer from katrina allen it's a patented park job series is what she's put a patented on and katrina came back and answered she'd like to put a patent on that she'd like to put a trademark on that if you have a patent or a trademark issue talk to sunstein they'll tell you what you need to do to protect your intellectual property head over to sunsteinlaw.com we are going to give you a look at paige's disc and oh my goodness elaine it's hard to tell with the shadow what's actually going on if i was there i'd be poking my finger seeing where the grass can you slide a piece of paper and again is it the pavement is that pavement is that hard pack dirt so page calling provisional over here so this may count it may not depending on the ruling of the drive evelina looks also have been out of bounds throwing her third as well sidearm is a nice way to go but um not oh nope she did she it looked like it was going to go way to the right didn't it but she did actually control that very well and she's sitting close to the basket for her bogey and paige and evelyn will walk around the pond let's talk to terry terry you're on the ground what do you think man again any word a feel in me says that that's going to be out of bounds but they're going to have have to have a conversation about it i don't see it touching any inbounds area it looks like it's completely surrounded by the pavement but like i said they'll have to...
have a group decision wow that is so close and we're getting a look at tatar's disc as well it looks like she is on this string as well terry that looks yeah they said i knew she'd be close over there but it looks like she's going to be ruled inbounds and she'll have a birdie look she's got about a third of her disc in it looks like that's all you need i don't even need that really just need a sliver tatar for birdie to get her day started and lo once again on the uphill bid kristen does have a low line drive putt but it's now two putts that we've seen that were extra low so that's usually a sign of not being quite confident she might be feeling a bit of pressure she might be just you know kind of wanting it too much instead of saying hey i'm in las

vegas

i'm on the lead card i'm just gonna have fun with it i think it would have to be like touching yeah that right like a quarter inch more exactly just like right yeah yeah because this is just like right it's like completely surrounded by sidewalk concrete there you go group has reached a consensus page pierce out of bounds looking like we might have a new leader after this whole huh two-stroke swing all of a sudden i have a feeling we're gonna have all day back and forth all day you know just about every one of these holes is birdiable evelina makes the pokey putt though paige pierce also putting for bogey that drops her into a tie for the lead for the moment...
until katrina allen comes along and taps in that birdie what a drive perfectly played nice to not have a putt on an elevated pin oh isn't it although we're not seeing much wind so the putting isn't as much of an issue as it was yesterday with the wind over to five we go to watch a haley king drive this is absolutely crushed elaine it's it's keeping going oh my gosh that's got to be 500 feet seriously well the hole is 666 feet and she chewed off more than half of it yeah fantastic stuff we're gonna take a quick break on the disc golf network back in a few so hello leopard 3 is stable it want to go straight all day long that's why i love it it feels good in my hand it's just very comfortable to grip just throw it's gonna fly straight for you and i love the plastic it is beautiful look at this color when you have a pretty dish like this you just want a birdie right you are looking at katrina allen over on the t of four feeling good after taking a two and a couple of competitors bogeying it she's turned that over quite a bit and there is out of bounds to the right but it stayed in bounds it looks like i think she threw it i think she's now just figuring out there's out of bounds over there it looked like it anyway you're looking at tatar going with the royal grace again well that's much more like what you want to do that is a fantastic shot beautifully done feet and she made that look pretty easy didn't she just...
threw it about 3.85 on all rope page going zeus that looks to be well controlled heading in towards the basket oh my goodness similar distance bullseye it looks like how you bounce back from before huh she didn't look worried about it she looked like she thought she threw a good shot and oh maybe i just overclocked it a wee bit evelina oh she has found oh that fought through really well not gonna birdie most likely but should still be an easy par and after that smash we'll check out haley king's second i mean that's like no more than 200 feet left on that holy lane but uh beautiful up shot and she controlled the upshot really well because you can see what a steep little slope is and if you're on the fly when you approach that basket you could end up a long way away another player that loves the forehand approach kind of like kristen haley king will go to it very very often it's so great if when you can have that forehand approach to give you the option one more tool in the bag never hurts that is a look we're looking across threes fairway here leaders and our growing gallery in

vegas

we're gonna swing over to an eagle bid for hayley king oh just inches low it did settle and she would go on to birdie that was one inch to the left oh my goodness what a move that would have been i would have got her to 19 and that would have been just three off the pace 18 excuse me evelina smartly playing for par katrina allen i love the long shadows behind all...
of the spectators reminds me like that camel shot from overhead in the dunes you ever seen that one it's a pretty famous picture absolutely and these early morning rounds give the long shadows there's austin hannum catting for cat today and austin is holding kat's battery operated jacket which has thermal warming by battery but it looks like she's warm enough today it's certainly a lot warmer than it has been in previous days and that is a hot pot right there and we've got a tie at the top once again cat and paige sitting at 22 kristen a chance to move within one though with a birdie here you knew that was going there we go yeah that has the correct height evelina to save par and she does that we're back to where we started pat and paige tied at the top kristin won back four holes have elapsed up ahead ella hansen's second that is a zinger of a cider wasn't it full commitment and hold on come back come back come back oh oh this is good it did come back all right well called elaine that is parked for eagle for ella hansen and she would go on to make that putt haley king has now leapfrogged evelina to fourth spot ella has been having up and down nothing boring there except hole two yeah thankfully all those add up to one under par at least ella's sitting in solo 8th currently one of our rising stars in disc golf to tar over on the t of 5. that is the royal grace for kristin she'll want it to come out left that's enough that is...
enough i was a little bit worried about it there sailing off too much um it's a long hole so what you want to get off off the tee is just a lot of distance anywhere in the fairway left right center there is ob to the right and there's ob to the far left page pierce with a zeus this is overturned that is too much turned over oh it stayed clean though wow it even got over the rise of the hill um she may never have been over there in terms of approach that's a great point it might be a new shot for her cat nicely done and cat and kristen both have that really nice sidearm to lean on for that second shot it's it's a long starter so we'll have to see uh how close they are how much distance they got on that drive evelina destroy your pole it's gonna cut roll back into the fairway for the most part she lost a lot of distance on it it had so much speed when it hit the side of the hill it really did this is haley king over on the island hole hole six she trusted elaine oh she actually had that was so pretty out of bounce that is a heartbreaker the nerve of that disc this is a scary scary hole let me tell you oh my goodness it is there doesn't seem to be too much wind right now when the wind is screaming in your face there's nothing scarier than hole number six see what holland hanley has for us it might be a bit high that's a bit conservative nope she did not get enough hyzer on it it wasn't just stable enough of a disc there it looked like...
it i the wind doesn't look like it was too heavy to turn it over yeah look like a pretty neutral flying putter bottom left your screen is evelina getting ready for her second shot on five and now we're on the ground with a fin gonna show off her forehand and forehand is is a great choice because there is a golf green that's out of bounds however she was well short of that golf green i think she was just a little bit out of position there and there wasn't a whole lot of option other than to lay up in front of the golf green and just play it for a birthday still play it for a birdie car five yeah it's one of these sort of soft par fives for the women um it's 666 feet so it's not the distance it's the fact that there is the out of bounds in front of the basket and then the very steep slope to out of bounds behind the basket tatar she has grabbed a royal river from her bag should see a forehand swing coming up this looks so nice she's skipping it off the golf green oh my goodness stop stop and that was just a very punishing rule now come on back in all right no hang out wow all right there we go you know kristin had almost the same shot yesterday and it sat down very nicely next to the basket yeah so talented at the sidearm it's a great play if you've got the distance because you can skip it off the golf green quite safely she'll be disappointed when she gets up there and realizes how far down the hill it rolled katrina allen looks...
like she's going to go to the sidearm as well site i'm special on her bag terry go ahead just going to say ian and elaine katrina allen's not quite as close as paige but i think her positioning is much better you're seeing her line up beforehand paige is going to have a much more difficult choice to make when she throws her shot even though she's closer to the pin paige what do you think sorry terry what do you think paige is going to do from over there we'll see if she's comfortable with the sidearm from that distance i'm not sure if she's gonna go with that but if she tries to go up the middle she's gonna have much more of a tighter alley to hit as we see her getting ready for the rangefinder any any spike hyzer options for paige she could but she's really messing with that green because if she ends up letting it fade out too hard she'll find the green and she can go out of bounds so i'm not sure if she'd go with the spike eyes she's got the distance for it i'm just not sure if that's the shot or not fair enough choices for pierce we'll see what she picks looks like she's still deliberating well there's the basket it looks like she could go almost straight at it but such a touchy shot to make it land precisely near the basket and not go sailing over out of bounds yeah such a lion drive throw it's going to need to be that's a great shot from pierce eagle putt coming up that is that is...
safe and gives her a nice go for it uphill for the pot up ahead on the course the iconic hole 7 and ella hansen on the tee she has the power to reach the pin looks a little early ah she's found yeah still a putt for birdie coming for hanson it looks right around circle's edge maybe a little outside back to five we go for sullinan her third on the par five oh and the green is just punishing the players today isn't it a foot long it'll go 20 long haley king on seven you know she's going for the green right 432 feet over the water oh no she laid it up smart play from haley i love the fact that we're seeing haley tone it down some growth and yeah make some decisions about where she's got a higher probability and with that maturity she is going to be a very dangerous competitor probable result for katrina al from this range all weekend has been in certainly she has not let the backdrop unnerve her at all all weekend market three elaine it's the cut of a champion so good that's a scary crazy putt and what you know when she's going for those putts is she is 100 confident in her aim you know if it's not going to go in she's at least going to hit something solidly and probably sit and that's what gives you the co the confidence to go for the putt evelina after that unfortunate role sets up her birdie putt and sails it wide i'd love to see a flatter putt from her i feel like we'd get some more makes i would i think when...
she's nervous maybe she hyzers it a little bit more we saw very hyzered throws from her the first day and she had actually a really nice putter yesterday it was true flat and not kind of cutting through tatar for eagle okay she's back on track yeah you knew she wasn't gonna miss that one she is such a gamer and especially those uphill putts i feel like kristen loves them she just attacks them with a lot of confidence we're gonna see our third eagle on the card this one from pierce oh it was just either a little bit low or just not quite enough spin it was almost there consolation prize is a birdie but she will lose a stroke to katrina allen and kristen tatar putting perfection was one of the keys i was looking for the players and you disc is a little screwy right now so don't look at those scores there is evelina making a nice power save there's pierce with a birdie we're taking another another look at that katrina allen put from circle's edge just a note doubter done she is just on her putt i'm gonna check out our paragon player stats for katrina allen circle two in regulation third in the field 71 percent 71 circle 2. that's great driving any player would just die for those stats 42 birdie rate that is hot they are headed to this whole hole six the island greeny lane yeah and if you're a right-hand backhand player you need to swing it out over the water with something you know a moderately stable putter mid-range take your pick...
222 downhill i think most players will be throwing a putter and if you hit the side of the hill to the right of the basket your disc is almost certainly going to go in the water you've got to hit the flat we've also seen some luck with players hitting uh the slope of the ground just in front of the basket and having it skip up side armors do not love this course no this whole yeah it's not good for side armors so uh players like sarah holcomb i'm sure she would have gone to a backhand yeah i have actually seen nate sexton throw a big old spike heiser forehand at this thing this is haley king up ahead on seven she's got to get a precise shot there to lay down by the back oh it's perfect stress-free birdie after that approach lovely stuff you're looking at tatar on the box of six i believe you can tell by the shoes you clearly can right this is a harp shot for kristen it's a bit conservative but she's a great putter yeah that's right in her comfort zone isn't it so again her game plan may be just do not go ob on the drive katrina allen more aggressive that's exactly what you want to do there hit the ground just short of the basket it'll just settle in she looked very comfortable throwing that paige pierce hayley king through seven zero pars she came to do things today elaine paige pierce that's settling in eventually nicely she took kind of a different approach there did you see that like a hyzer flip with something...
straight it worked it stuck yeah so we won't we won't second guess that evelina well she knows how to hyzer i'm not worried about her the question is will it be in bounce it is yes and this is the game plan we've seen from evelina she goes quite conservative she doesn't want to go bounce we are up ahead on hole 8 with ella hansen this is a par 4 for the women very gettable especially if you're ella hansen she played that so nicely oh my goodness she gave it a lot of anhyzer she is pin hi really nicely done what a talent ultimate sure teaches you how to spin a disc doesn't it it definitely does and you know ella's just been able to translate her ultimate skills to discuss so quickly yeah really astonishing and um what i'm surprised at is she doesn't use a sidearm even more because we see ultimate players usually throw a sidearm for the short approach shots and ella seems very comfortable with the backhand so it takes the player players a little while to get from the t to the basket yep looks like evelina is now ready for her birdie attempt should she show sochi oh she will be laying it up under the basket 100 oh nope she proved me wrong but gave it a bit i i think it was a soft bid yeah yeah and with her hyzer putt not the worst angle not at all yeah that was a i'd like to put it into the basket but i really really really don't want to go in the water kind of putt tatar from circle's edge for two on six that is getting wet...
that's so unfortunate she has been up to this point hitting metal very solidly this is the first time she has missed i'm sure that's why she was so aggressive right counting on that she had the confidence yeah but unfortunately should not be putting back up the hill for bogey so i had a chance to move into a share of the lead but instead going the other way unfortunately i'm sure she liked that disc too it's really hard to know how aggressive to get she knows that she's not going to win this tournament by laying up great point the question is was this a hole to go for it on she's asking she can get her putter back real quickly the water is very deep there it's gonna be a real fishing expedition to try and get it i think i saw it on the drone cam was it floating no it was on the bottom it wasn't it didn't go too too far into the water thankfully paige pierce for birdie hey joe can you bring that book over here what could page pierce be looking at elaine i'm she's just checking to see if it is a meter in from the water or meter in maybe from the red uh whisker that we saw that was close to there i think the red whisker was actually the putting circle for a share of the lead she knew it was high out of her hand but it was right online looks like the tar will be up next this will be a putt for bogey oh i have no idea how that just got in usually those fall right back out when they come in that low oh my goodness that hit the rim...
that went straight up and somehow it snagged the chains paige pierce par look here if you didn't know it was paige you could tell after she puts the disc over her head on the putt katrina allen for a birdie and a two-stroke lead yep doing what she needed to there built herself a little cushion through six holes and remember that katrina was error free on this course last time she played it that's where she got those strokes on page wasn't it it is it was all about she had zero boogies and paige had four this is haley king over on eight and that is just a layup for birdie i believe yes it is and she would go on to make that putt ella hansen this is for eagle yes ella awesome stuff enhancing there takes so much power to get over the water through the anhyzer 427 foot hole yes crush missy gannon what a day well that is more like we expect to see missy playing especially on this type of course that's the first first tournament of the year maybe took her a couple rounds to get back into pro shape uh who knows what it was knock off the nerves or something we're seeing um vintage missy cannon last year late last year yeah man she was on her burner wasn't she this is hole seven brought to you by vii and diameter apparel katrina allen she's playing it over to the left and running to see if she's in bounds yeah that cart path is the ob line and she is just inbounds there is no safe place to land near the basket so the players are either going to be...
laying it up short of the golf green or they may try to do like katrina did and go to the left of the golf green page pierce that has found the out of bounds green she was trying to lay that up and she may just have a little too much adrenaline running through a system right now she knows how hard she needs to throw it and you know as the scores are tight the score goes back and forth you just have so much adrenaline in your system and sometimes it comes out in in that layup that doesn't lay up and avalina mashing on her destroyer gets it safely in bounds this hole got paged last time too she threw it in the water on the drive yeah paige had four mistakes last time she played this course and she really needs to settle down and focus and not make those errors that are going to take away the all-important birdies tatar that's leaking out of bounds you know players are tempted to go to the left to try and get more distance but it's a very very skinny inbounds area we're gonna see it right now so let's have a look at it we've got the water to the right so clearly you need to be past the water and the biggest landing zone you have is in front of the golf green so the first bit of green grass we see is all safe then we get to the shortcut that's out of bounds but it's a fair distance from the basket um we just went by drone wise to the spot on the left where the other three were landing and again very small amount of real estate between those two...
hazard bunkers in the basket and of course if you cook it too far past the basket it's nothing but downhill leading to out of bounds katrina allen has built herself a two-stroke lead and paige pierce has found the out of bounds on seven well katrina is in good position to take another stroke from paige on this hole if she can execute her approach shot correctly let's see if paige can save par with a good third here that's leaking into the hazard from out of bounds to out of bounds and so what is different here is she had to go to the drop zone instead of playing it where it was last out of bounds and so that puts you back you know almost 100 feet and it makes that shot up to the basket tougher oh i don't think she got off the green terry do you know if that one's on the green or not that one is just a foot short of finding inbounds and she's gonna have a long look just to get up and down from there oh brutal that's looked like a probable bogey for tatar the play really is to skip it off the green yeah i like the play green green green and uh discs float so nicely on those golf greens because the grass is so incredibly short and then it just tends to stop once it gets into fair territory um kristin just didn't give it enough oomph just needed a little more just a little more katrina allen with her second there she played the golf green muscles up under the basket that's what you do to keep yourself out of trouble on this whole seven which...
doesn't frankly it doesn't have many inbounds places to land oh second hustle that should work for a birdie forever i'm gonna see some big stroke swings on this one definitely could paige is really in trouble she's got to settle down and execute the shots with a bit more precision we know she's capable of doing it i'm wondering if she's feeling maybe not as settled as she usually does just because of the pressure kristen throwing five looking like a double bogey six coming up for the estonian over to nine we go to watch ella hansen tee and the key to hole nine is getting out of that keyhole at the t oh she did it boom goes the hanson barely just a foot short i'm having a par look instead she's putting for double paige pierce putting for single bogey right now there is danger elaine on if she misses the basket entirely she will be in the other hazard i don't know if this is a good decision yes it was a good decision i'm sorry i doubted it too well we have seen her glance off the chains a couple of times on these pots she's one of those people when you doubt her she makes you look like a fool more often than not she is so good evelina this is for birdie oh nice birdie from the finn and evelina could sneak up if she just continues to play conservatively which has been her game plan on this course conservatively but not taking the bogeys and gaining the advantages on the par fours and fives this is katrina allen for birdie and two...
strokes on page three on tatar she did not hold back one bit on that putt her jump putts from the sand are just next level she did yesterday too they are she needs to just clinically just incredible stuff happening all day more to come when we come back from this break i would recommend the envy to every single person that plays this golf this is such a good throwing putter if you don't have an envy in your bag i don't know what you're doing envy is one of the most pure straight flying putters comes out clean can handle power it can handle touch it's just very versatile it holds any line that you're really putting it on it's so good so good it's so good hello we're kenna we're a dutch growing company we love plants and we want to tell you some cool things about them just like humans plants can communicate they can sense when another plant is close plants look out for each other too they warn neighbors about nearby threats by secreting substances and studies have shown that plants love a good tomb we love and understand plants let our passion excite you too you are looking ella hansen on hole nine her second shot on the par four it almost goes in oh and it goes out of bounds i feel you ella i feel you almost snagged it too right there oh my gosh so many emotions in such a short period of time accurate oh oh my goodness she didn't almost have a duck she almost had an eagle right there oh there's a coot too look at that katrina allen...
on the t of eight it is kind of a funky hole because you do have that pond in front of you you have to keep it high and turned over that's a little bit too much by katrina allen it's you have to get kind of a wider anhyzer at it i certainly don't have the power for it but as we saw ella hansen many of the women do evelina she's gone crazy turnover and that's just into the i don't know if it's a willow tree it believes it's not as comfortable with the anhyzer so it doesn't set up there paige pierce is that a passion i think it is yeah it's either a buzz or a passion yeah so she's not trying to bite off too much of it that's a great disc to hold an annie oh this is fading and it needs to come to rest that's fine but it was it was leaking out towards the path oh he's getting a little bit concerned i think she's probably like five feet from out of bounds where she where she rested yeah but on the other hand she's got a very nice look at it oh yeah she does tatar looking to bounce back for some struggles in the last couple good sidearm hole and she's throwing a good one too that should make her really easy birdie nice position yep she can just chip around that one dead tree that's in the way this is ella hansen this is for par oh good save we've seen strong putting out of ella all weekend that was kind of her her weak link last year as well yeah it was holland hanley for birdie oh nice well done a lot of...
blue on holland scorecard not as much as missy's though oh my goodness missy is six down through nine right now moving up the board as is hayley king with her three down but your leader katrina allen kind of moving away from four strokes that's a cushion she's making a statement she likes this course and she's been managing it extremely well and when she looks comfortable she plays really well and four strokes will make it a little more comfortable it certainly will and as well you know hitting some death putts as we've seen watching her competitors struggle it's a kind of a great feeling when it's all coming very easily to you and you're watching your competitors struggle it makes you feel even more comfortable this is evelina second on the par 4 8 birdie putt coming up for the fin good spike approach we've seen her use that spike approach several times now henna blue bruce evelina sullinant great friends hannah did not make the cut hence her ability to caddy right now and we also saw on the frame just a moment ago grant zellner of the pdga keeping tabs on all the action and all the social media katrina allen's right for her second routine layup cat's kind of back on track it feels like just back to her game plan executing really well that's a cat's new prototype vortex disk she just put in the bag under stable fairway and speaking of cats discs cat is sponsored by black ink and there are some really nice designs that you...
can get on the black ink.com website uh katrina allen stamps paige pierce lays up for par nicely yeah the jump pop layup is such a sure pot up you uh don't hit the ground too hard just loft it up there it takes the slope of so many of these greens out of play if you can just kind of parachute your disc down there same sort of thing from kristin a bit of a jumper evelina now setting up her birdie look from it looks like just inside the circle there's a bit of a down slope leading to ob she was a little closer i did too that little kind of ridge is deceiving isn't it and now we're seeing a little bit of a headwind i just couldn't give it enough right there it is so hard to convince yourself to putt high when you're putting with no backdrop whatsoever just hard pan leaning to ob behind this basket paige pierce for birdie also a little further than i thought no problem for the five time converts the bird evelina coming back for par katrina allen to maintain that four-stroke lead she entered the hole with and it's done katrina allen she is six down through eight holes that's rising to the occasionally and you know she's not making it look difficult she's making it look like you just put your shot out there and let's do some flashbacks here she made it look pretty easy on friday as well a little bit of post love here on one well that this was the dicest part of the round hole number one where she hit that pose she deserved to be out of...
bounds but what did she do capitalized she made a birdie out of it she made lemonade out of those lemons and that's gave herself another eagle look on five such a great approach shot again hitting the ground just before the basket letting it settle in over here on ten just beautiful line drive distance pull getting full flight hard to do it better that's just way down the fairway she's very comfortable with this course it just might be her course nicely done looked like a friday and it's looking like it right now and this was on 18 to maintain that bogey free round from circles too that was so insane that putt that's a a long way away that's like a 50 foot of power on that putt to go climb the hill and get in the chains incredible stuff her stats from friday i believe perfect scramble perfect circle one not that she had many many circle one pots she was putting everything in from circle two or the bullseye have that number one park stat we're on el with ella hansen on the t of 10. this should go a ways and the key is getting it cleanly out from the trees not all of the competitors have been able to do so um but ella that is way down there massively down the the fairway great drive playing as a part of five for the women too you gotta think ella hansen is thinking eagle katrina allen on nine and again this is a hole that on the first round a lot of women had trouble getting out cleanly no problem whatsoever for katrina paige pierce with a zeus it...
sounded like a tick just one little thing right i was going to say it sounds like she ticked something but i don't think it slowed her down particularly much right still got a long way out down the fairway which is important it is a 641-foot hole to tire with the royal grace she's clean through the gap that was a huge smash and that gets her in great position to attack the green as well evelina with one of her go-to destroyers this thing's about to get mushed there it goes man she crushes elaine while that settles we are gonna take a quick break on the disc golf network katrina allen four-stroke lead can she hold on we'll find out when we come back welcome back to the action on hole 9 evelina sullivan with her second on the par 4. hazard short ob long can she manage the dis stops and it settles in beautifully you love that getting some love from her friend hannah and that's where evelina makes up the strokes she gets the birdies or the eagles on the par fours and fives paige pierce has now figuring out her best course of action the basket is tucked into the right and there is a sand trap just short of it and the ground is such that this is like to get sucked into that sand trap paige pierce second shot underway it's in pounds split circle two it was overthrown but she definitely did not want to go into that sand trap so that is uh the better side of caution is to go long absolutely and there are those helicopters chinooks i think so i'm not a...
helicopter expert i wonder if they're picking up some royalty down on the strip katrina allen with her second yep hazard that's what happens that bunker is so perfectly placed precarious an evil pin placement evil evil mildly diabolical by our tournament director there you gotta love it though she should be able to put the pot in from there the way katrina's been putting yeah it looked pretty close to tarza's drive was the class of the card now her second she swings it out wide jumps out of the hazard it's out of bounds it's in not even hit somebody's foot out of the spectators needed to dance there didn't they yeah that hit a foot over ahead to par 510 ella hansen i think an eagle after that drive she's got to be i hope that has a lot of hyzer yes it does okay that's an eagle bid coming up the way she's been putting that looks like she is back ella hansen is back disc golf is back along with the rest of disc golf thanks for tuning in today on to the disc golf network every day tune in on youtube consider throwing us a subscription you can catch all the rounds all week tons of this call of action if you're a ptga member you get a 50 discount oh good looking out elaine tell your friends yeah it's what were you saying cheaper than netflix absolutely cheaper than disney channel and you're supporting disc golf at the same time there's a disc barely a bounce totally totally in i'm glad those spectators were able to...
get out of the way i was a little concerned about their nimbleness i swear it hit somebody's foot just a little bit but thankfully not enough to do too much damage that was pierced just laying up for par smartly yeah there was i don't think there was a look around that tree and katrina alan white give her 15 foot on this part but that sounds like about cracked and they're just doing a quick confirmation of being in bounds you always want to have you mentioned that the other day i think didn't you yeah you you if you're in a situation like this you really have to let your card mates verify if you just pick up your disk and say i'm in bounds the pdj rule is um if there was a doubt about it you will be obsessed a stroke as if it was out of bounds unless you get some verification first so just take a moment let the card mates confirm tatar for birdie oh no that's low and right it's a missed opportunity there to grab a stroke on pierce and allen look at both carting powers well likely pars anyway here is the likely par for alan cutting from the hazard i spoke too soon elaine and she misses that was and right as well that's not her miss yeah that that's interesting it could be that she was trying to account for the uphill nature of the putt and just hung on a little bit too long sure it's a game of imperfection now we haven't seen um evelina can a straddle i don't think and now he just did all right nice that's uh the solo...
bird for the fin on the lead card on whole nine getting a stroke on the rest of the women that takes evelina one down on the round today two birds in a vogue for her katrina allen cards a bogey that'll drop her back to 26. pierce the par stays at 23. the lead is three for pierce as we watch a birdie putt for king on ten butter she still has not had a part billy king has had three errors and then the rest have been birdies third eagle of the round wow ella hansen kind of a fbo cheat code well and as we've been talking about these par fives are quite soft par fives and the women you know if they walk away with a five they're generally quite disappointed i feel like they've made a mistake so the eagles are possible but to put all three of them together good on ella hansen who is now tied with missy gannon for sixth wow missy and now seven down through 11 it looks like she got that birdie on 10. still bogey free for ganon and as we said at the top of the broadcast this is a course that the women can score on they can get a birdie on two-thirds of the holes yeah evelina on the box of 10 just hit the gap with your disc oh she's turned it over nicely if it flexes out she will get maximum distance trust that destroyer to hook up can't you what a shot there paige pierce going zeus perhaps a little bit low but this ground just has very little friction does it you get the right amount of edge you can go places pierce did setting yourself up for any eagle...
opportunity tatar royal grace oh this is spawned beautifully yeah i feel like that's gonna go a very long way as well in between evelina and pierce is tatar alan going with a torrent beautiful i'm gonna take another look at that paige pierce rip fun watching this thing dance on edge it is so a little bit low out of her hands not a bad mistake to make because you don't want to hit the branches high but the grass is so so so short and the disc has so much momentum on the ocean to take a quick break i'm trying to get that visual over the waves you know this is latitude 64. the smallest of grains handled with the greatest passion always trying to improve always trying to be better out of curiosity excitement thrill for the player and the sport because we want to make disc golf awesome for you welcome back you are looking at katrina allen on the par 5 10th decision time to run the basket chase an eagle or settle for birdie elaine it's a tough decision she's going to have to decide how far it is and how much she trusts her discs playing it out to the right oh very well played that gives her a chance terry that looks circle's edge how long is that putt for cat coming up all right tatar up next and we'll see um she looks backhand so if she's going backhand that means she'll be taking a line very similar to what katrina did putting it over to the right over out of bounds and trusting the disc to come left she has gone long but not by much what...
a shot from the estonian we're gonna give you a fun katrina reaction off of her shot she's watching watching watching that it'll putt for eagle it's all right you know you have high expectations when you're katrina allen evelina sullivan well we know that's coming back left we do ooh lovely stuff of that nestles yeah and you can see the golf green to the left which is the reason the women are putting their approach out well out to the right they don't want any part of the disc hyzering back in getting ob on the golf green page pierce that looks like a mid at she most not like it is that headed for the green is it so bad it'll get off nope that is out of bounds she didn't swing all the way through that was a kind of an early release not sure why yeah she's feeling this championship slipping out of her fingers she's got 48 comeback wins looking like 49 same question right now well there there is time and space we're only halfway through the round but katrina has made only one error which is on the previous hole where she missed her putt from the bunker and other than that katrina has been playing very very steadily obviously feeling good about her game we've seen a couple of misfires now from paige so she's not feeling quite as comfortable as she did yesterday looks like paige will be first to act she is now throwing four so just trying to salvage a par and this is a perfect time to just think of the mantra you know keep...
your cool don't panic there's a lot of golf left and just because you've had some misfires doesn't mean you aren't going to be amazing on the holes to come i like it eileen what okay that this was more stable than i thought i was worried for a minute the jump putt approach is always a good idea with the sloping green gives the disc the best chance to just settle down very quickly where it lands we have some eagle looks coming up first up katrina allen and as comfortable as she was feeling before she's feeling just super comfortable again watching your competitors struggle really helps your confidence and helps you can putts like that there's at least two more strokes on page absolutely this was her course on round two this is looking like it is katrina's chorus again on the all-important round four tatar with a comeback eagle putt of her own to keep pace with your leader again a low putt i don't know why she's not feeling more confident with her putts uh they've all except for the one by the water they've all been hitting metal solidly so it's not like her aim is off she'll get it going i don't doubt this is evelina with an eagle bid does it move her into solo fourth and it does with the make paige pierce to save par good putting yeah it was tatar it's a birdie but you know she's not happy with it no that was such a makeable pot after that great approach shot this is ella hansen over on 12. unbelievable ella...
hansen circle's edge climbed the hill in a great position here are our 10 10 hot rounds of the day your leader the hottest of rounds absolutely and missy gannon climbing the ranks yeah emily beach laying it down unfortunately emily's a little too far back to really make a run live with ella hansen cashing it from circle too fantastic and you saw that step through that's a great example of a step through putt where she clearly released first and then just let her body fall through as a natural progression of her momentum and if ella could keep putting like this the rest of the year watch out division holland hanley with a pretty look this is holland's setup she looks at her feet she makes sure she's balanced takes a few deep breaths and addresses the basket nicely done i loved it out of her hand it had the height so i knew she was comfortable and she was assertively going for the basket 12 such a good get it is not an easy hole hayley king this is for birdie she's coming off of her first part of the day over on 11. but she's had enough of that and again you saw nice and high out of the hand comfortable swing not trying to like over push it just letting it come naturally she's got such a great pot of using her shoulder as a hinge evelina on 11. you want to keep that disc turned over on number 11 to get maximum just actually hit the platform dig i wish you would throw that disc more off you know evelina throws that just so well on the few...
opportunities she takes to actually let it get out of her bag katrina allen she's walking away she's the one doesn't want to look yeah tatar on the box of 11. just a little bit too far turned over there is out of bounds up to the left so the players are wanting to definitely give the disc a little bit of turn so that it doesn't um heiser out of bounds but that was just a bit too conservative by kristin paige pierce looks to be going passion that'll put inside the circle for paige pierce pin high we're going to give you another look at that avelina sullinan drive a lot of snap the disc is just turning over on its own just a tiny bit of stability at the end 370 feet it's a tl3 that's what that is oh cat is in the water off her second that that looks like a bogey to my eyes with that ceiling we'll see yeah uh it's down low it's hard to say if she can possibly sneak it under the trees but that's not at all the approach shot she was looking for thankfully sitting on a five stroke cushion but might lose two here that was just a a rare error in her approach shot she needed to just put that a little bit straighter with the sidearm but she'll be taking that into account taking some notes might be still an issue with getting used to the new bag of discs sure this is haley king on 13. let's see if she can bite off paul macbeth's line and snag an ace that's nestle's inbounds she's got a very easy birdie and maybe an...
eagle coming up not a boring par for haley king never oh just once i guess ella hansen is on the tf 13. she gonna snag another eagle that's a little more of a spike hyzer than i would expect yeah but it could well be that she wants to avoid the bunker that we just saw in the front of the shot there that was tatar playing up for her par now katrina allen she is laying up for bogey so we are bringing in that possible two-stroke swing with a make from pierce getting a look down at the fairway in green of 11. pierce lines up the birdie to close the gap to three she said it the second it left her hand drop there's never any moment of suspense when paige throws like immediately she calls it and tells you if it's gonna be good or bad she really does i love that birdie attempt it was an elevated basket she threw it high uh just with a little too much zing let's see if evelyn i can snag a stroke on the lead card here i bleed for the second time yeah great drive we don't see too many birdies out of evelina she gets her well so i mean part three yeah she gets most of her birdies on the longer hole so this is a great example of her controlling one of the shorter holes although 370 feet from is far from being absorbed that's that's my full sandy lane cat now that is the first really short putt we've seen katrina miss she's angry at herself so that is she just slipped back into an old habit there she didn't like really push up so it was a two second...
no it really was not how about that what oh no oh yep you're right here you can see her turn around right there of course i think we all have to keep in mind that the updated pdga rule is you have 30 seconds to throw so if people are doing jumping jacks or a marching band is going by you are not allowed to wait for them your 30 seconds counts when it's your turn and the reason we need to do this is we have crowds there's hundreds there's thousands of people they're not all going to stand still it's unreasonable to expect that and the players must adapt as they do in every other sport it's though it's so tough for this type of a sport it's not a fast action sport it's a focus and concentration sport so the players are going to be learning these skills this will be ella hansen's second on 13 playing as a par 4 for the women excuse me and if she can avoid the sand trap which she did very nicely bullseye hello we'll drop that in eventually and every time we see ella she's doing something amazing i mean i'm not sure why she isn't on leap card she must have run into a little bit of trouble somewhere yeah she's got three bogeys on the card we haven't shown you those yeah well we'll just show you the good stuff the good stuff only the good stuff on the disc golf network you're looking back down the fairway of 12 at your leaders you hate to see doubles but it makes it more interesting for our viewers and us in...
the booth here let me tell you as a player there's nothing you want more than an absolutely boring round of golf where you're just in control your your competitors are fumbling a little bit and you just cruise to a victory that is like the best type and i'm sitting here rooting for the opposite the entire time but you know that's not the reality of women's golf anymore not anymore it is a very unusual tournament where someone has a clear lead because the depth of talent is amazing and if you even have a you know so-so round someone is going to catch you and gain strokes on you we saw that yesterday with cat haley king on the 13th this is an eagle look it's just a little jump put away yeah and that did work for a birdie for king as well as ella hansen this is evelina on 12. unfortunately that was just right on the tree right out of her hand yeah a little farther outside and i think she's got something tatar up next that's one of her royal graces i like the line that she's got she's keeping it wide allowing the disc to come in at the end that isn't green terry talk to us what are you seeing over there yeah unfortunately after the roll that did find the ob green she's going to have at least 50 maybe 60 feet to attempt the par save oh no i don't think she turned it over quite as much as she was intending to out of her hand and it just held that hyzer all the way didn't it you did pierce with a zeus looking to attack this...
green very reachable for her arm oh she beat the berm pin high 386 feet great stuff katrina allen up next looking to come back from that unfortunate double on 11. yeah i needed just a little more terry terry yeah waiting for that to curl and it checks up and she gets the green flag oh my goodness that was close she looks slightly surprised she does doesn't she but you'll take it after you just doubled ahead we go it's a hole 14 from haley king hacky second oh my she's incredible did you ever get that good at hacky zack and elaine i was always very enthusiastic about hacky sack but i would tell people i'm good for one hit i couldn't do it by myself i needed lots of people around me to um save it from wherever i randomly kicked it too she's ridiculously good at this and you know back in the day in the 80s and 90s that's what you did you sacked while you were waiting um for the people to clear the tea and it's a wonderful thing to do because it keeps you really limber um as we were seeing on the previous days when it was actually quite chilly out and she was sacking it it kept her warm instead of standing there and just having the muscles seize up evelina's second on 12 quite a bit short a bit blind as well yeah she's okay that's all right she'll probably have a straddle putt around that tree to tar making her way to her out of bounds lie and cat doing her some favors with that double but this this probable bogey here hurts her...
chances at taking the title it does that we're starting to run out of holes for the players that are you know three four five strokes back kristen grabbing her meter in off the out of bounds lie putting for par from distance and there is ob long as well now all she can do is just lay it up yep smart smart play there evelina is two behind her hayley king is too behind her and i don't think she can afford to be giving up either of those strokes she still has six holes to go after this katrina allen was in bounds by a dick's disk's width this is careful how do you say that i know i just terry millwood right there sorry terry oh my gosh count it i am so impressed by these long putts you know i saw it while i was playing with kat last year but she's taking it to the next level over the off season these are some incredible makes we've seen from her all weekend pierce well she's gotta answer doesn't she she's gotta keep pace as she does ian just be thankful you got a couple of great birdie putts here on the recovery there incredible green for these guys to access though and get the birdie absolutely sir evelina no and and she did not bend her knees at all she just stood flat-footed and reached with her arm i always like to say legs are free accuracy on your putts you know you should be moving right at the target all that momentum you know yeah when you're doing a straddle putt all your power comes from your legs it shouldn't come from your...
arms does make the bogey as will tatar most likely no problem there we are gonna roll back that zuka replay of this katrina allen smash from downtown and look how high she gets it really high a little bit of a hyzer just settles right in corner pocket works every time with that hyzer putt watch the crowd i bet it'll be good i love that shot right there that's fantastic all the hang time like the dis disappeared it was ages before it came back in patented cat putt right there sunstein you'd be talking a cat about patenting that putt absolutely and she's a bit of a roller coaster lately two blemishes on her card um but lots of birdies still like however her bogey followed a birdie and her double followed an eagle kind of negating themselves pierce on 13 with a zeus must be thinking eagle yes she is with that toss and you can see that sand trap that acts as a hazard protecting the basket alan that's what she wanted to do setting herself up for the birdie i don't think she minded that little tree it was going to surely hit the sand trap wasn't it it looked like i had a chance yeah tatar we're going royal rivers kristen a little wide but fine job done off the tm13 and for all these players what they need to just make sure they do is float it over that sand trap going in that was a jennifer allen birdie over on 14. well that's a really close distance to be birding from with her and a lot of blue on her card oh a little eagle sandwich there some...
nice birdie bread there are some coots and missy gannon has the hottest round on the course right now she is nine down through 14 bogey free yeah the mistake free rounds just feels so good what a burner some great putts in there as well got a 38 footer holland handley launches one on this long long hole she's just gaining some distance keeping it down in the center of the fairway her next shot will be the one where she needs to land it right close to the pin swing it back over to our leaders and katrina allen she'll be thinking of the previous hole where she dropped it in the sand trap and won't be making that mistake again almost dropped it in the target well she hit metal it's a little low but that had a chance wow great looking bid evelina she finished short right you're looking at her second well done there's always that moment where your heart jumps to your mouth when you're waiting to see if it actually will make it all the way over the trap so much eagle bit from tatar she knew she needed to start making moves yeah should still be good for the birdie now pierce also an eagle bid and you know she wants this one and make here and she's just one back for the time being a good good try it's a pretty low probability from as far right as she was i mean i want to say 50 feet anyhow it looked like it while they walked to those let's check out some ella hansen action we are over on 14 second shot approaching the green that ended up a...
little bit shorter than she would have liked i like the way she used the green to skip it up i think she's gonna have a putt though paige pierce had a putt evelina we've got a little bit of a knee bend there i was just watching to make sure she did that feeling a little bit more comfortable and it should be just a round of threes which on this hole are birdies yep pretty soft par four we are going to show you that ella hansen eagle putt when it comes up but first a haley king approach on 14. hayley kang sit six down currently on the round eight back of your leader eagle here would help though looks like she's gonna have a chance and haley right now tied with evelina just two strat strokes back from kristen so either haley or evelina could make a charge for the third place fair enough we're gonna have a quick word from our sponsors we'll be back in just a few the destroyer is essential on tour one of the most versatile distance drivers in an end of this lineup the new halo plastic is probably the prettiest plastic that anova has in there in their lineup makes for a really cool disc to bag very confident and throwing the destroyer and keeping it in bounds at lower ranges paige pierce three back of your leader on the t of 14 eagle opportunities for the arm she has possibly a slight overturn but still good once you're past 300 feet the fairway really does open up so she looked like that was well past the early ob to the right there is still ob to the...
right and left on this hole as most holes on this course that is katrina allen holding a torrent did she turn this over enough yes she did evelina she's grabbing a destroyer and a fairway perfectly tatar looks like royal grace yes it is that was turned over terry can you tell us yeah i'm quite a ways away from that but it does look like it found the spectator area which i believe is marked as out of bounds we get a clarification but that's what it looks like from here yeah i think you're right terry unfortunately and ella hansen for her fourth eagle of the round she's pin high left about a 50-foot look and she wants she wants a birdie is what she wants on this one i don't think she had the ceiling to really give it an honest run but this isn't legit you go look for hayley king oh my goodness i love that high putt lots of confidence it could have had a little bit more spin but it had barely enough to get in and she's tied for third all of a sudden with kristin well she's been bopping back and forth on that on that um kind of third fourth line holland hanley knows that if she had that putt again she could put it in yeah that was a birdie miss for her checking out our scores cat three strokes our leaders have five to play so just kind of keep that in mind to tar i'll go ahead terry sorry you know i was just gonna say i'd like to chime in a little bit a couple days ago when natalie ryan was about to take to this course she said that...
she loves this course because it's so scorable and we're seeing that today you guys keep talking about the eagle opportunities natalie ryan knew those were present clearly we saw her with the hamstring troubles late in the round but everybody knows this is a scorable course yeah especially for these arms terry there's a crushing lead card that was kristin throwing her third kristen is going to be upset with herself on the mistake she's made right um she knows the mistakes she's made are you know unforced errors you know turning the disc over too much when you you really didn't need the distance it's better to play it safe um scorable course you kind of try and get greedy sometimes but that can come back to bite you when there's ob on the left and on the right evalina putting us hurt on this disc and finishes smartly short and left of the grain should make a relatively easy birdie for evelina yeah it's almost 800 feet you know to be looking for a three that that's two incredibly good drives back to back it's a tough task but it's kind of the edgier range you're really razor thin margin for error way more than the edge of my range same maybe with a roller i could get there on the second one cat and austin figuring out her next play there is an obi golf green short right of the basket it's quite an extensive green she just grabbed her very overstable mid-range that's her quake so laying it up then yep yep and smartly...
played by the two-time world champion she's got a three-stroke lead there are five holes to go messing up would be the worst mistake you want she wants paige to earn it if paige is going to be the winner she doesn't want to hand page the championship very well put paige grabbing the range on her second shot trying to figure out if eagle is a possibility can't she carry the green right is kind of the question in her mind right now well yeah i mean at this point she has to be aggressive there's three strokes ahead to katrina now there's only three strokes back to both haley and kristen so that's a little bit in the back of her mind but i think she's more of a forward look she's just she's a ricky bobby if you're not first you're last she's got the zeus that tells me she's gonna go for it i think she can also do a safe go for it where she goes over the green but with the disc that's going to hyzer so it will bring her inbounds and the question will just be how long a putt does she have terry do you have a range guess for this shot for paige yeah i was just gonna say guys she took more than 400 feet off the first drive so you do the math from there for what she has left and are gonna push over the green on this shot that is exactly how you want to play this hole skip it over the green let it just skip up that hill don't necessarily crest the hill but wow that was just all the power she had a near bullseye for eagle for...
pierce she's just a pace or two outside she still has to make the putt though she does we saw her miss a probable evil putt her earlier has been mostly good just the occasional splash out yep i don't think she's had any absolute misses your leaders and the gallery tatar and silver lat figuring out her shot that's gonna be her fourth just looking to salvage the par now turned over it's got a lot of spin in a circle look yeah not not bad you you really want to be as close as possible to that pin but the execution was really good this is katrina allen's third setting up a birdie hopefully trying to just bleed one stroke to pierce it looks like she's parallel to the basket over to haley king on 15. an incredibly tough get here 439 feet which is a little beyond her range and it's guarded gosh if that was a little whiter i love the attitude of that disc i think she's just barely barely in front of that stand of trees evelina with her third on the par 5 14th puts it on the side of the hill i don't know if any of these women have gimmies paige may have the shortest part of the bunch i think you're right she had to watch cat purse putt first a bit of an advantage you are watching page watch cat line up a birdie look it was a high miss so she was giving it an aggressive bid looking like a possible two-stroke swing again elaine possibly you know i'm not going to make any judgment until all the putts are in the basket that putt is in the...
basket for tatar great parsave pierce lining up the eagle just to pace outside bullseye elaine that was important that was important very very important the lead is one for alan evelina for birdie that puts her one back of tatar and your leader snagging an uncharacteristic par on 14. you know she's thinking birdie at worst on this one it's tightening up it's tightening up indeed one stroke four to play paige pierce cutting the gap two by two with this eagle putt and it's not a likely eagle hole even though there is a fair amount of room to work with you really have to put together two 400 foot plus drives in the correct direction followed up by a pot on a no very punishing green if you miss look at that those scores it feels like it's down to two elaine for the win it feels like paige has five third place right now you know it's going to be cat or paige and then for third there are three women in the mix haley kristen and evelina fun fun battle to watch there as well this is ella hansen on 15. she just threw it into the ground and you saw haley king's drive here is where her second is coming from awkward thankfully she's got a great forehand such a useful tool on scrambles yeah that didn't bother her at all i'm glad she was in front of that stand because if she was behind it it would have been awfully difficult to get up and down agreed we're looking down 16's fairway and 15. you see you think cat's checking scores right...
now elaine i think she's probably confirming what she already knows but you don't want to make a mistake by actually thinking one thing in your head when that's not what it was we probably shouldn't text her and ask ask her how are you feeling cats if anyone in finland wants to tell me what they were saying my facebook messenger is open um i can understand some swedish but finnish is a completely different route of a language and in fact the finnish language i believe is uh slavic so it's closer to russia and i think you know as much as we're engrossed on the disc golf events there's some very very serious events going on in europe now and you know we need to shout out to all our ukrainian viewers and people who have friends and family in the ukraine and i think we need to also remember that estonia and finland both border directly onto russia so as concerned as we in north america are about these events our friends in europe have even more level of concern about just for the grim goings on today so puts the disc golf a little bit in perspective it doesn't it really does your lives will be lost on of course blessed to be worrying about disc golf right now that was a nice drive from paige pierce setting up a long birdie look evelina attacking she's taking off the jacket she means business now that was at t tl three again this hole's a really long way away 440 feet a little bit guarded at the pin um most likely a three for the group...
unless someone can put in a just a big old putt katrina allen good time to make a move get a little cushion again that's her torrent it's leaking really left elaine there's ob over there terry talk to us guys i'm actually waiting for the spotter who's standing near it i'm on the other side of the fairway and he hasn't given any indication so everyone's just standing there stunned i'm not sure what happened well you just thinks it's on the fairway tatar i like the trajectory of that disc a lot better kind of snuck around that tree that hayley king snagged it did that gives her just a nice open look at the basket well terry let us know when you get confirmation one way or the other you are looking back down 15's fairway as our leaders make their way off the tee box fourth hardest zero birdies i'm not surprised that there's zero birdies yep it's not overly you should still get a par right it's it's a pretty unexciting hole if i must be brutally honest for the fpo field it's just way too far away for anyone to get close to it and it's not long enough and there's not enough hazards or natural tree coverage or anything like that to make it particularly grueling so the players will be marking in their caddy book that just take a three don't do anything crazy exactly and guys i've got a pretty serious update here it sounds like that was heading toward the out of bounds the spotter said that one of the...
spectators may have accidentally stopped it and it did in fact keep it in bounds so cat in off the drive no way terry that's wild and and you know spectators might not be expecting a disc to come anywhere at them they might just be standing there you know just expecting to see it in the distance and then when it comes right at you um you know i don't think anyone necessarily knocked it in bounds well i'll see if katrina could take advantage of that spectator help and save par it looks like she's going to you like your chances anyway that was a solid approach shot we're going to watch that drive again as me see if we can see exactly what happened oh it was an early release wasn't it oh very much so it hit a tree is what it looked like to me i don't see it hit anybody but i think it's out of view right now tatar with her second kristen loves a sidearm approach shot going to that harp she loves so much getting some love from silver lot one of the best four hands in the game coming out of silver evelina your second yeah that looked a bit hot didn't it a lot yeah that's like circle's edge cutbacker on a slanted green not what you want there pierce long long bid for birdie yeah she just wants it to nestle this is not the hole to make your charge on well put the green is really funny it's very very sloped on a odd angle hole 16 you want to get out cleanly of that gap haley just did that and the disc is just zinging a little bit to the...
right but should be in fine position and my fins did not let me down elaine they were talking about what to eat after the round and evelina wants lasagna okay yeah gotta have a good italian restaurant i love the finnish people oh evelina just short on that comeback you know she didn't bend her knees enough and it it kind of rolled away a little bit farther than she'd like because of that funny slope of the green but evelina just needs to bend her knees a little bit more and push up and that will give the disc the umph that it is missing katrina for par now we've seen her hit high at this distance i didn't make her do that she foreshadowed that one it's a little too hard seriously i did not make her do that did you know you had those powers i would use them for good people you would you're canadian and it's almost the same putt again and she gets it right this time what we have now though is a tie again where we started is where we've ended up after 15 holes is too close for her to miss yeah i'm giving her that one evelina for bogey there and she bent her knees on the shorter putt she just needs to remember to do that on the longer putts evelina has been very close to having a great round kristen saves par as will pierce no problem there that's your one of your two co-leaders and while they walk to 16 gonna take a quick break have a quick word from our sponsors back in just a few so ah disc golf on a winter morning there's...

and we are back where we started tied at the top three holes left to play elaine talk about these three holes we have left and kind of how you see that unfolding where you think it's gonna come down to hole 16 is almost 900 feet it's just too long to eagle and it is not long enough to make it a really challenging five i think the women are most likely going to take a four on hole 16 hole 17 for the fpo division it's 450 feet not too much trouble to be had i think that's going to be a routine three for the group agreed this is going to come down to hole 18 as my prediction who can play hole 18 well and we saw katrina allen masterful on hole 18 the previous round and paige struggled it's a great finishing hole sounds like it might come down to it it's just it's anxiety this whole 18 just every throw is excellent it's set up for score separation and it very likely will produce that's very well said katrina allen austin hannah they're about to watch paige pierce take the t of 16 with a...
zeus the key is just to get out of the trees cleanly that looks lovely it's funny paige didn't like it is it left because she knew it was left but it's okay it's a 900 foot hole all she has to do is not be in the water or on the golf green on her next shot royal grace coming from kristen i feel like that's the perfect disc name for kristen to throw she is very graceful very elegant player she kept it a little bit to the left that's a good natural place to land evalino with her destroyer put some flex on this and it fights back in time nicely that's a great shot that caught big distance hey katrina allen with her torrent wonderful shot popular spot right there it is it's the place to be and if you guys have never watched disc golf in person the disc golf pro tour is coming to your town go check it out they will blow your mind it's one thing to watch it on video it's another thing to see it in person absolutely it's the it's the vibe the dynamic and you know a lot of people are making disc golf vacations they are planning they're buying tickets they're planning to go to events they watch all the pros play and you know maybe they play a round or two afterwards yeah we had some great cities along the tour make a vacation go watch some disc golf do you have a favorite event on tour elaine i gotta say that the great lakes open really impressed me last year there was an insane number of spectators there and there's some...
great viewing opportunities and michigan loves disc golf i have a little soft spot for michigan i have so many so many rounds so many years i've played there myself huh ella hansen approaching on 16 getting the job done really nicely birdie look coming up hayley king trying to set up a pretty look of her own looks like a zone approach for haley it's perhaps a little bit wider than she intended but uh her putting all day has been fantastic oh it sure has and she is tied for third let us remind you thank you back down the fairway perhaps that might have been a might have been an adjustment to her previous zone approaches i think that might have been a different one oh nice you are looking at cats lining up her second the near side of the golf green is 777 feet from the t so if she throws you know kind of an 80 to 90 shot she should be short of that golf green she's not even challenging the golf green that's just what she drew up right there looking straight down the fairway of 16 and watching evelina set up her second shot right hand side of the green fairway anyway kaboom her favorite lime green destroyer that she has been throwing all weekend her go-to again just absolutely crushed on a line drive paige pierce it's a zeus again for her second she has one tree to navigate around so i don't think she has to worry about throwing too far just make sure she gets a little bit of hyzer on it and she should be good perfectly called elaine there she is sitting...
very close to evelina yeah should be routine for those two and we are going to swing over to kristen tatar just a few paces in front of where paige threw from that's a that's the place to be right there it is over i'm sorry ahead on the green we go to 16 haley king buddy for birdie oh no and you could see it was a little low out of her hand you don't practice putting from that position very often you're a gallery and you're one of your two co-leaders walking down 16's fairway austin and kat it almost looks like the ground is snowy but i believe that is sand oh yeah it kind of looks like the zamboni's gone back and forth jibber caddy for most of your tournaments later were you backpacking at yourself oh backpacking it myself i um i learned very early on in my career that caddies can make you incredibly nervous i had a woman you know offered a caddy for me and i thought oh sure why not and she was super nervous and it just made me nervous and i just said never again am i going to have someone to caddy for me unless i'm 100 super comfortable with my caddy katrina allen that's short and that's left you'd like a shorter putt and even more so than the distance on that putt with her high lofting angle that's going to be really tough to get at that pin oh do you think that tree's in the way terry yeah most certainly will be in the way we'll have to see how aggressive she wants to be oh wow that's a big development...
advantage pierce it was a miss throw all right opportunity for pierce to perhaps grab a stroke again keep your cool stay calm 274 feet to the pin thanks to our friends at bushnell disc paige going right at it i like the look of that oh it kind of leaked a little bit it's still in the circle yeah i i think there's a touch of wind we saw when we saw hayley king putting terry are you feeling any wind down there got a direction for us yeah it's blowing a little bit over their right shoulder so right to left would be the wind read there's also a couple of geese here trying to protect the basket evelina attacking pin and geese canada geese protect their territory that they do i still got some goose ptsd from the geese by my grandma's house harp coming from kristen get up the hill now kristin in a battle with hayley king and haley took par on this hole kristen having a chance to make up a stroke and give her one more leading into the last two holes great pick up evelina dropping she's back 20 so she's two back of kristen and haley yeah evelyn evelina has a cushion behind her missy gannon is four behind her so evelina's probably at this point feeling like she's coasting into fifth unless things change up around her we've seen evelina she likes to be aggressive on certain throws but she's just not in general been aggressive on the course she's played it very steadily big putt right here for katrina allen for birdie oh she shaped it she...
did that is the kind of putting we've been seeing from her for most of the weekend huge huge puff melon right there in a big moment like she she likes the circle two parts better than the circle ones you have to to say from her scoring rate on them and just the ease of the throw getting some love from her competitor tatar pierce now needs this to tie oh you knew it oh gosh this is clutch putting clutch putting from these competitors these are not easy putts they're putting on a mound with the wind adding that kind of unknown factor it's it's not super strong but it's enough to give you pause the level of the women's game is just incredible now evelina oh no well at least it stayed in bounds yeah it did she gave that a lot of arm she did bend her knees a little bit but i i feel like she's not comfortable with these putts and she's arming it more than she is using her entire body and that affects your accuracy use the big muscles going to a different putting style that could work better for her that one just never had a chance it's going to be a bogey unfortunately for evelina there kind of cementing that fifth place you talked about well she can't do that on the next two holes or missy cannon will get her from sixth place tatar for solo third there she goes she has a one stroke on haley king who's currently playing 17. evelina to save bogey replay of that katrina allen putt beautiful pot good oh wow it's got the loft just a tiny...
bit of hyzer she snuck it under the tree just barely a lot of spin uh-huh it's still tied up oh my goodness well you're all right they both birdied 16 elaine i thought they would be both a little bit closer to the basket save here same here missy gannon putting for par over on 17. another make for missy still a clean score card impressive nine down wow she's on course to rival cats round yeah the lebanon the other day yeah really really great stuff page cat tie at the top we have two holes left to play maybe we might have some overtime today elaine there's every possibility you are looking at hayley king on the tf 17. just a skosh wide but really workable for birdie ella she think an eagle and you know i was looking at the hole 457 feet but i didn't remember how downhill this hole is now that looks to be pretty high i don't know if that's going to work in our favor it's like just outside circle one that's fine oh yeah another eagle bid coming for hanson holland hanley and she's off the tee clean should work for a birdie most likely looking down that's the green just short of 16's basket looking kind of directly down 17's fairway 18 off of the distance in the top of your frame what a cool shot from the drone and you can see some of the spectators from that drone shot watching to see is it going to be paige or is it going to be katrina we're going to find out about 20 minutes 20 long minutes long long minutes and the...
players will be thinking about their adrenaline levels they're going to be trying to just turn everything off during these weights you know maybe doing some hacky sack we are flashing back to a katrina allen playoff at the las

2019 with paige shu i'm sure everyone remembers how this ended but we'll show you anyway because that's really fun a little bit down the hill there cat goes even farther i believe some cat forced to just lay up and paige shoe had no lay up in her boom dead center and i think we'll see paige shoe back on tour this year yeah she's got a daughter um she's growing up a little bit and and paige is kind of itching and wanting to get back out and into the action again her husband grady shoe made an instagram post the other day is like that's still the best putt that's ever happened at las

challenge

and i was like yeah i think you're right man it's a bit of a home or take but i think it was still correct so we saw katrina doing something on her phone you see paige just sort of whistling you know these these pauses are very difficult because you know you need to stay relaxed but you have all this adrenaline in you and you don't know what to do with it and there's nothing you can do with it um this is why as i was saying before it's i love hayley king doing the hacky sack that just kind of gets your adrenaline down to a manageable level and haley just very comfortably sidearming it...
right underneath the pin keeping herself definitely in contention for third place yeah that'll put her back into a tie with kristin with a make ella hansen's lining up another eagle look this will be her fourth eagle of the round at the drops oh tickles the chains but not to be really really good run holland hanley birdy bid oh leaves it just right and low and that's gonna find that i'll roll to circle's edge yeah the last thing you want is for your putt to grab the side of the basket on a hill like this all in all lining up a par save wonderful pot and she's saying to herself why didn't i do that the first time i was with authority that that was no doubt that that pot was going in ella hansen will now step up to a birdie look this actually has implications she is tied with missy gannon at 16 as well so gibson's solo fifth place for the moment marie maria oliva your points are important on the disc golf pro tour gets you free money at the end of the year and a chance for a lot of money free money it's money earned through a year of blood sweat and tears potatoes potato that was a hayley king bertie as well puts her 23 down tied with tatar for the moment pierce the t of 17. given that it's downhill she can reach it so we could see some score swings on this hole that's a zeus just waiting for the crowd to disperse we've got the crowd watching the second second card we've got the crowd watching this lead card we've got some...
people who are swivel necking back and forth needs to hyzer back just a little bit that's kind of where ella was it looked like eagle look coming for pierce yeah depending on the tournament sometimes following the chase card is where it's at because you can watch two cards at the same time exactly and you know hayley king is putting on a show from the second card as is ella tatar royal grace good flat shot just didn't have the distance though should make for a very easy birdie with her skills though and that'll give her third place solo again you are looking at one of your co-leaders katrina allen with a torrent high speed mildly flippy driver that's a good choice for the downhill but i think it needed to be a little bit higher it just nestled in to that you know golf green a little bit low yeah a little another foot i think she's got another 20 30 feet on that drive absolutely evelina let's mash a destroyer why not oh this is smushed keep going okay long eagle look birdie if not and we're gonna pop ahead on the course to 18. missy gannon her second shot so missy laid up on her first shot and the play is to go a little bit wide that was really turned over to get back in she's smiling it must have somehow got back in we are now back on the t of 18 for hayley king it looks like a zone she must be lying up don't think she's throwing that brand of disc anymore oh my gosh you're right that's what terry was trying to tell me...
earlier it's hard to keep up there were a lot of shuffles this year of looking at our co-leader there katrina allen she changed to dga color me embarrassing haley king changed to innova must be a pig then right i'm not even going to guess yeah there's like a you know 500 there's a lot of there's a lot of a lot of discipline in there hey and i'll jump in here for a second for both of you guys let's start thinking about hole number 17 48 hours ago paige pierce was looking at an eagle she ran at it she had putting woes you walked away with a bogey let's see if she changes up her game plan today katrina allen all she can do is that that is a zero pressure putt to tire that is a long distance to jump putt from she has got such a strong jump putt evelina it's a layup it is a controlled lamp and terry foreshadowed here we'll see what paige does and it's all about how you feel in the moment looks like there's just about no wind and she wants the wind good effort settles just outside bullseye for the birdie though what is the definition of bullseye it's like it's five feet isn't it it's those little blue um the blue the blue whiskers see the blue whiskers that's the bullseye so if you're outside that and inside the circular that's the c1x territory for our stats pierce for birdie good make there and it looks like hole 17 is going to be a wash for the top card ready for evelina birdie for a cat is inexplicably...
marked as a par for the women yeah comparing it to like 15. it's about the same and it's all gonna boil down to hole 18. is play gonna stop after hole 18 or are we going to keep going for a few more holes get some overtime paige pierce another look at this eagle bid that would have given her a stroke lead going at 18 but we are tied instead she's got the height it just maybe she hangs on a little bit too long and you do have to hang on a little bit i'm going uphill there is 18. and there's the tie at the top page and cat kristen is going to be keeping in mind what hayley king is doing on hole 18. you got it this is maria oliva gets the good flag it's a good place to land but boy is that scary yeah you could see her hayley king something slow and overstable here from king not overstable enough though she tried to play that safe but it's very hard to force yourself to play it away from the basket and unfortunately too much spin and it goes in the water well this is a big development for kristin ella hansen that's how you throw us a safe shot with haley king's arm you know she didn't need to test the water that hard yeah yeah if if i was haley i well i could never be haley i have no idea what it's like to be able to throw like that but um i would think a good choice for her would be to go way more to the left and then just clear the water on her second shot instead of trying to get to this maximum distance little little point down...
there yeah holland hanley that's a nice drive one of your two co-leaders paige pierce hanging around on the t of 18 watching the chase card they're gonna have a long wait they'll need to wait for those players to go down to their disc play again clear the area and then maybe they're gonna be able to take one shot and then they're gonna have to wait again it's kind of agonizing ahead on the green missy ganon and she'll just lay up i believe missy will be taking a five but we'll find out once that gets dropped in by you disc kristen and haley so haley out of bounds a big advantage for kristin in that third place race it um it will allow her to play it even more conservatively i guess over to the left she can play the hole for a five in all probability so if she doesn't get her layup right she could even just do a tiny little shot to get her lay up in a good place ella hansen let's see if she attacks the green well i don't know if the green is in range but she'll certainly want to get over the ob water and the ob golf green area oh that needs to keep going a little bit more safe and ella throwing two hands in the air in celebration you gotta love it i think she hit that golf green right at the beginning and just skidded the entire length of the golf green oh another eagle puck coming up for ella if she wants it it's a long one though holland hanley her second on the par 518. holland also has plenty of distance she may want to...
play hers a little more to the right though because that was really touch and go from from ella very nice placement shot exactly the amount of inbounds in the middle of hole 18 is scant there's just lake on one side lake on the other side out of bounds cart path and beyond haley king maybe deciding to take it back a little farther so she doesn't fall in the pond it's quite a slope so the last thing you want to be doing is running downhill while you're trying to throw uphill it's extremely hard to get the control you need she's got a fairly level spot and she'll be wanting to keep one to the right turn it over and land it to the right of the golf green excuse me haley asked the cameraman to back up a little bit please does it have enough turny lane i don't think so that looks out of bounds to my eyes yeah it is so back to back ob throws for king really kind of just handing third to tar to tatar at this point she she will have to earn it a little bit because anything can go wrong on hole 18 but kristen will certainly have a lot more options knowing that she can do an extra layup for example if she doesn't land in a spot she likes paige just trying to find her zen place while she waits for 10 minutes before she comes that's got to be impossible maria oliva with her second on 18 oh almost fallen in the pond but saves it i believe that did come up short though right we are seeing a red flag from our spotter i'll leave unfortunately...
i'm out of bounds such a punishing hole giving her a spot at least over there have a chance to get up and down fairway should be clearing shortly should be watching seven times with world championships tee off here they've both been in this position before they've been neck and neck for years they've had plenty of battles that have come right up to the wire i feel like i've been watching this battle ever since i started watching disc golf let's fly elaine tell us about these

challenge

s well you have to lay up the first shot because there is a lot of water and you have to have a controlled shot you don't want to throw it more than 300 feet that cart path is inbounds where you can see it but then it becomes out of bounds over to the right there's a strip of grass as you were watching that was inbounds but we'll get to that later

final

ly paige can throw and she's got to control her adrenaline she dissed down here to a fairway that is a great play she did not try to bite off too much she did not try to get too greedy there's just no point in going ob on your first shot tatar should be looking to do something very similar that looks like it a little more conservative than paige it is she's she's got the stroke she can decide what to do that is a quake in katrina allen's hands a very overstable mid-range great choice if you've got too much adrenaline your disc won't let you um it won't let you go too far off on the...
fairway safely ebelina and evelyn it going mid as well you're all hanging around in the same kind of area it's like cat's gonna have the longest of the upshots though or was it chris now it was kristen wasn't it that was ella hansen just laying up for birdie nicely birdie finish for her take her to 18 down that'll give her solo sixth place great show assuming she makes that pop there are your playoff holes should it come down to that haley king throwing five so she's going to bogey which means tatar needs to par actually she can bogey as well and still get solo third and it's kind of interesting if evelina plays this whole well she could possibly tie haley that's maria oliva for par oh what a great putt that's the kind of putt you want to end your tournament with something you can take it into the next one ella hansen now approaching her life this is for birdie that's a sobo sixth place showing for ella hansen had her first elite series of the year that was colin hanley paul has had a great tournament it's been good to see her and see a lot of her play and according to our friends at statmando there have been nine playoffs between paige and cat cat winning six of those i'm gonna try to get something creative on the other side so let's see if cat has that confidence knowing that she's bested paige more often than not tatar just needs a bogey she just wants to push it off to the right couldn't ask for something better...
than that she's even landed in a flat spot that's where you're aiming for katrina allen huge shot for the tournament coming up next i think it's a about not making a mistake there's no way to go here on this whole you just don't make a mistake beautifully done no mistake there coming down to the wire in

vegas

gotta love it evelina with her second on the finishing ripping over on that destroyer is it too wide yes it is that is out of bounds oh that's a shame i i think she felt like she had to be aggressive to see if she could get up to hayley king looks like however she will be taking home that fifth place haley king good showing with her first tournament with her new sponsor fourth place fantastic yeah and a great

final

round shoot eight down here to move up the board elaine you think paige tries to attack for eagle i think it's too far i i think the wise move is to not screw up you know she doesn't want to just hand katrina the championship if it needs to go to play off let it go to play off smart golf there paige has the zeus oh she has found water that was an unforced error i think she was going for the green must have with that shot right or just didn't turn it enough terry what do you think about that shot what happened there guys like you said that is short and left and she was almost the exact same position but she checked up on that spot two days ago today it continued to skip and rolled all the way into the water now...
she'll have a long look to possibly save the putt and i think she's gonna need it if she wants to force a playoff with cat terry do you think she was chasing eagle right there or was that just kind of a a bit of a shank it seemed like it seemed like it was a a full-on throw i think she wanted to try and put this thing to not let it go into regulation and it just came out early and found that left side just like she did two days ago wow let's see how it unfolds i banish allen here i think it's a mistake to try to do something heroic on a hole that is so full of danger as this one you've got water you've got cart path ob you've got those little ponds you've got the golf green and there's a big slope leading up to the basket it's there's very few places to land that are actually anywhere close to flat we saw kristin land right on one of the few places i i appreciate that paige thought she could execute the shot and wants it to be over but was this the shot was this time to go aggressive or would it have been better to go to the playoff and choose one of those holes to be aggressive on where the shot wouldn't be punished so brutally with the benefit of hindsight we can say that wasn't the right decision yeah evelina throwing four on the par five she needs bogeyer better to finish ahead of hansen so needs to get up and down from there secure fifth place by herself and that's very doable if she's looking at the scores and...
i hope so thinking about it she'll realize that she just needs to lay up yeah kristen her third harp approach wonderful oh yeah i see a flag yeah either way katrina knows that a good up shot will most likely give her the championship looks like she's executed that nicely all the action now on pierce gonna need an improbable throw in to push play off i believe the only way to the basket is up and over those small palm trees an exceedingly difficult throat i need to channel some some james conrad here it's that type of situation she is safe so katrina does still have to make that putt for the win solid effort it was that's all she could do she had strokes behind her so there was nothing to lose by going for it katrina allen for birdie and the wind new york 2022 las

important mitigating circumstances that will cause her to do something else and it came down to 18 didn't it it did where she decided she was going to play it for a four and she did just that and that made the difference between her taking home the championship and not yeah kind of let paige see what she was going to do and kind of it happened exactly so i've been very impressed at cats cool under the pressure you know it was very nerve-wracking it was tied and then she got a six-stroke lead and then paige ate that away on the third row round and then cat pulled out and it was bounced back and forth back and forth and she just kept her cool she kept her plan although she missed a couple of putts by and large she kept making those huge putts and late too that huge put on 16 under the tree really impressive stuff clutching up late exactly so as she says all the worksheet that she's done has translated onto on course success that's got to be nice to see let's check out some of those highlights from cat's day on the end of a course her first little park job on three and she did that both days this is over on five i believe setting yourself up for the eagle that you get from circle's edge and that's kind of a scary downhill putt you can see just perfect just that trajectory she's practiced over and over and over and here it is again she needed every single one of these strokes to put the pressure on paige she certainly did this make under the...
tree on 18 oh my goodness she is not a low-ceiling putter and she made that work the second shot on hole 18 not trying to bite off too much just placing it on that nice area that's safely in bounds just about the only place you can land it safely which results in this up shot and just a tiny what a day for that woman but we had a whole host of women 60 women in our talented fpo field today or this weekend actually yeah we did and there was a big battle for third place that's right uh hayley king put on quite a show she shot what minus eight today yeah and put the pressure on kristen tatar and again it came down to hole 18 didn't it it did that's such a test that's kind of funny the two aggressive players went ob you know hayley and paige right and then katrina and kristen took advantage yeah the players who are a little bit more measured a little bit more controlled and decided not to be too aggressive and it really works on hole 18 the strategy of just playing to a safe spot and let me tell you when you're standing on the t of 18 it doesn't feel good to just throw it short way left because it feels like you're you haven't made very much progress to the basket and you have to be really patient with yourself and so kristin definitely showing us that she's here and she's gonna put on a performance like she did last year yeah it's gonna be fun to watch all year long this really talented field uh haley king despite me not even...

wooded section it's really a good test of a golfer i feel like excellent i also want to give a shout out to evelina selinsen please she didn't look like she had a very comfortable start she was throwing a lot of hyzer throws a lot of highs or putts but she wasn't making errors and that's the way she approached the entire tournament is she just chipped away at things making her birdies on the par fours and fives making the occasional deuce but but not making very many errors and she just kept kind of steady and took away fifth place i'd say for the first time she was on this side of the atlantic in two years it's a great show good solid start yeah she hasn't been playing in front of the cameras and with all these you know great pros been playing with you know hannah over there right right and now she has to deal with just such a depth of field there's people who she's never played with before or seen before and they're keeping up with her right so it's going to be a fantastic year on the disc golf pro tour uh thanks for watching for myself as well as elaine everybody in the booth in the field terry miller out there thank you guys so much for tuning in hope you enjoyed the show uh catch you in a couple hours for the npo actually just an hour i think thanks for watching i wish it was in a couple of hours you
