Both Lizotte & McMahon Tie Course Record with -16 Under Par Rounds
Eagle McMahon continues to show why he is arguably one of the best players in the world. The 20-year-old Colorado native adds his fourth win to the 2018 season at the Konopiště Open this weekend. Eagle’s play keeps trending upward and there looks to be nothing that can slow him down. We can now say McMahon is a force to be reckoned with wins at Las Vegas, Beaver State Fling, Glass Blown Open, and now Konopiště.
Eagle started his first PDGA Major title by tying Ricky Wysocki’s course record 51, -16 under par in Rounds 1 & 2. When you averaged a 1065 player rating for all four rounds, you’re going to be competing to win the tournament. Simon Lizotte closed the gap to the leader in the final round also tying the course records of 51 strokes. It was not enough as Lizotte finished 5 strokes behind Eagle, for his first first ever PDGA Major Victory.
Gatekeeper Media will be providing Disc Golf News every Monday
With some time away from the course, Gatekeeper Media has been working on how we can produce and provide the best Disc Golf experience. We are making a commitment to providing a Weekly Roundup every Monday to recap some of the previous week’s highlights. This project will start off small until we have the budget and labor to produce more quality content as we grow. This is our first step in building a community of Disc Golf fans who want to help grow the sport.
We invite you to give us feedback in the comments. Let us know what you would want to see on our page. This will take time but we truly believe that with your help we can accomplish anything.
