Catrina Allen’s run of 11 consecutive Women’s Open victories came to an end yesterday in Helsinki, Finland, as she took second place in the EuroTour’s Tali Open with a 14-over par 224 for the weekend.
Fifteen-year-old Eveliina Salonen of Valkeakoski, Finland, had the honor of unseating Allen with a 12-over par 222 at the A-tier tournament. Allen actually took a lead into the last few holes before carding a 10 on the Tali DiscGolfPark’s 20th hole, a 672-foot Par 4 featuring an island green.
Allen was using the event to tune up for this week’s European Open, the third stop on the Disc Golf World Tour, in Nokia, Finland.
