He lead the tournament from start to finish, although there was a scant one throw difference heading into the final round. Watertown Minnesota's Raymond Oberley Jr not only hung on but dominated in round three, extending his final lead to four shots to become 2013's United States Amateur Disc Golf Champion. Complete results.
Barham go BOOM! As the top rated player at USADGC, Michigan's Tim Barham was a big favorite going into the event, but a -1 in round one had him at a five throw deficit. He found his mojo on Saturday, firing off the best round of the weekend with a 1030-rated score of 55, or seven under par. The round lofted Barharm into a tie for 3rd, and within striking distance of leader Raymond Oberley Jr. who has lead each day, and awaits Sunday's final round with a tenuous one shot lead over Sam Smith in second place. It should be an epic finish!
Oberley Jr. and Pfaff share a narrow lead, and today are joined by a pair of Michigan players. Sam Smith trails by one at -5, Eirik Kauserud is one of three players at -4. They take to the Toboggan for round two in good conditions with overcast skies, low winds and temps around 70 degrees.
You never know what the challenge might be during Mark Ellis' famed Lizard Games. The only things you can be sure of are a ton of prizes and a ton of fun! The games begin after each day's round is complete. Bring a putter and a mini!
Less pressure on the third card? Maybe, but Minnesota's Raymond Oberley Jr. made it look easy as he shredded round 1 to tie up an early lead with Virginia's Austin Pfaff. Each shot six under par on Friday.
