Catching up with the first-time DGPT winner and using some historical Ledgestone data to determine what's changed in her game

Heading into Idlewild, Ellen Widboom was probably not anyone’s pick to take home the win. In fact, only four users had Widboom in their Grip6 Pick 6 contest for Idlewild, compared to 87 for eventual runner-up Sarah Hokom.
It’s OK, don’t be ashamed. Widboom had never made the podium at an Elite Series event, prior to last month’s Great Lakes Open, although she has racked up 16 wins at A-tiers, 20 B-tier wins, and 17 C-tier wins. Thirty of those 57 career wins have come since 2019, so how is it that such a winning player has flown so far under the radar?
