Krokhol proved to be a much harder challenge as the sun gave way to the sizzling rain on the last DGPT Europe event before European Open next week.

The tough conditions meant that not a single eagle was had throughout the day, but the amount of double bogeys had increased by a considerable amount however.

To prove just how much the rain affected the field, not a single player managed to take an eagle on the final day, whereas they had treated the spectators to 12 in the previous two days – nine of which were on hole 18, including Anthony Barela’s absolute park job on Moving Day.

Moving Day at Krokhol – Round 2 Recap

What a great showing we got on the second round of the DGPT Europe Elite Series Krokhol Open presented by Latitude 64!

Birdies were chased throughout the day and the leaderboards certainly look different after the second round. Across both divisions, only 7 players of the 149 players remaining have stayed in the same positions after a round that provided a lot of highlights.

WOW - the spectators at the DGPT Europe Elite Series Krokhol Open presented by Latitude 64 were certainly treated to a show that lived up to the great expectations that had naturally been growing leading up to this event.

And everything was in place for a perfect day of disc golf. The venue at Krokhol Disc Golf Course, the best rated course in the world on UDisc, makes for spectacular viewings, and when the best players in the world battle it out in near perfect conditions on this warm summer’s Friday, well, then something special is bound to happen.

For the fourth time this season, Anthony Barela is an Elite Series winner.

For the first time in FPO Elite Series history, Emily Weatherman is a chase card winner.

Both feats happened after a sprint to the finish at the 2024 Disc Golf Pro Tour — TruBank Des Moines Challenge presented by DGA on Sunday.

Course records dropped and new leaders emerged during Round 2 of the 2024 Disc Golf Pro Tour - Trubank Des Moines Challenge Presented by DGA.

Pickard Park demands a lot of things with its mix of open and technical shots.

It also requires finishing strong on the daunting 17th and 18th holes.

HENNA ON THE MOVE!

After a quite slow R1, Henna Blomroos came up with a round that saw her soar up the leaderboard at the DGPT Europe Elite Series Swedish Open presented by Kastaplast at Ymergårdens Discgolfcenter in Borås, Sweden.

With just a single bogey throughout the round, she finished R2 with a 1022 rated -7 round, taking her to 5 under par for the tournament so far.

She now sits tied for 1st place with fellow Finn, Silva Saarinen, who after taking bogeys on the first two holes, found the level we have seen from her in the last months and finished -4 for the round.

ICELAND ON TOP

With the forecast promising rain later in the day, the FPO had a slow start at the DGPT Europe Elite Series Swedish Open 2024 presented by Kastaplast.

The course at Ymergårdens Discgolfcenter in Borås, Sweden, proved a challenge with its tight wooded fairways and several OBs that come in to play, which María Eldey Kristínardóttir, described as birdieable, so long as you are able to hit your line and angle.

FPO

Paige Pierce was four strokes behind after Thursday’s first round at the DGPT Elite+ 2024 Portland Open presented by Latitude 64. Then, she sat three back after round two. 

On Saturday, Pierce’s hot round vaulted her into a 2-stroke lead – useful, but not comfortable.

Sunday, Pierce showed the determination of a player working back from injury.

All the way back.

FPO

With a blistering 10-under-par second round a new player surged to the top of the FPO leaderboard at the DGPT Elite+ 2024 Portland Open presented by Latitude 64. Sofia Donnecke (-13) of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, is playing in just her 25th PDGA sanctioned event of her career, which includes 8 victories at various levels. Two weeks ago, Donnecke made her DGPT debut at the OTB Open, placing 14th. She now co-leads a DGPT Elite+ event at the halfway mark with Ohn Scoggins (-13), who followed up an opening-round minus-7 with a 6-under-par second round.

The only problem with battling your best friend for what would be – for either of you – the biggest win of your career, is that somebody has to lose.

On Sunday it was Holyn Handley that was on wrong end of this equation, coming up short of the title and watching her friend Ella Hansen receive her first Elite Series trophy.

Both Hansen and Handley, who won what is probably the most prestigious non-Elite or Major title last year when she took down the 2023 Throw Pink Women’s Championship, got off to an ideal start.

As the FPO lead card prepared to round the corner of hole 18 on Saturday, it looked to all the world like a three-woman race heading into championship Sunday.

Instead, Kat Mertsch hit an early tree -- one of the large majestic oaks that pepper the Swenson Park golf course -- and sent her next shot out of bounds on the way to a deflating triple bogey.

It was an unfortunate turn for a play who had, until that point, produced at such a high level including highlights like an obstructed C2 putt on hole 7 that was off-the-charts in terms of difficulty.

Major Preview

After a busy news week in the disc golf world including Kristin Tattar reaching the historic 1000-rated milestone, and the announcement that a 2025 Major – the PDGA Champions Cup -- would be held in place of the OTB Open at Swenson Park in Stockton, CA, the 2024 edition of the OTB Open kicked off on Friday, providing an unexpected preview of next year’s Major season.
