Nothing stood in the way of the hot rounds during the final day of the Jonesboro Open.

  • Following up two consecutive 1000+ rated round, Paige Pierce added to her eventual victory by throwing a weekend best 14-under par final round. The unofficially-rated 1044 day would be the fourth highest rated round of Pierce’s career. She has won all four editions of the Jonesboro Open, and has averaged 992-rated golf at the Disc Side of Heaven over 13 rounds, including the highest rated round of her career, a 1059 from 2018.
  • Pierce finished at 33-under par total, 13 strokes ahead of second place, Catrina Allen. Pierce was either first or second in every major UDisc Live statistical category, with the exception of fairway hits. Jonesboro was her seventh DGPT win of the year, and fourth consecutive.
  • Allen used a double-digit round under par to move herself into solo second place. She finished the 11-under day 100% from Circle 1X. It’s her seventh DGPT podium of 2020, including a win at the Ledgestone Insurance Open.
  • Even though she fell a spot on the leaderboard into third, the finish is Hailey King’s second career DGPT podium finish. She led the field in C1X putting at 89%.
