We’d like to end the Roundup today with a special shoutout to Team DGA Member Mark Verrochi. Mark is the Tournament Director for the Daniel Boe Memorial, and DGA is honored to be a part of that event! Check out these stats Mark posted to his Facebook page:
- We had a total of 423 players compete. 212 in Weekend 1 and 211 in Weekend 2.
- There were participants from 11 states (AZ, CA, CO, GA, ME, NV, OH, SD, TX, UT, and WA) and 3 countries (Canada, Estonia, and the USA)
- The total event value for the two weekends was $78,189.
- The total AM payout (to top 45%) for the two weekends not counting the baskets or large player’s packs was $3,370 in gift certificates.
- The total Pro cash payout (to top 40%) for Weekend 2 was $19,855. This included $6700 in added cash plus every player got a player’s pack.
- We gave out a total of 31 baskets (3 Mach 7s, 1 Mach X, 3 Mach Vs, 6 Mach Lites, and 15 DGA Mini Trophy Baskets). First place in every Pro and every AM division won a basket, as well as winners of every side event.
- There were 5 aces (1 on hole 5, 2 on hole 8 and 2 on hole 12). We paid out over $800 dollars and $200 in gift cards to SDSF for four of these aces. One person that hit an ace did not buy into the ace pot.
- Of all the ace bounties that were available, the same one (on hole 12) got hit both weekends. Thanks Garrett Geuss.
- The lowest PDGA number (longest member of the PDGA) to play in the event was: 1470.
- The highest PDGA number (newest members of the PDGA to play in the event was: 213351.
- Two players that were registered in the PDGA as AMs cashed during the Pro weekend (and became Pros). Aidan Bound chose to remain an AM after finishing tied for 14th, turning down $250 in cash.
- The easiest hole on the course was hole 8 (average score over all divisions = 2.77). The hardest hole on the course was hole 1 (average score over all divisions = 4.86).
- The largest score on Hole 1 was a 12.
- The best single round score for MPO was a 46 (-12). The best single round score for FPO was a 52 (-6).
- If you were to have gotten the best score possible out of the entire field on every hole during a single round, your score would have been a 34 (beating Drew Gibson’s best round by 12 strokes).
- There were more players ( 8 ) that hit my two cars parked behind the tournament central pop-ups than the number of players ( 5 ) to hit the $5 drop zone putt on hole 4.
