Pros are still on the road after the elite tournament season ended, and many migrated to either Oklahoma or Florida for the weekend.
Eagle McMahon leads Gregg Barsby by one after two rounds at the 2018 Oklahoma Open. The 53-player Open field has nine players rated over 1000. Catrina Allen jumped out to a seven stroke lead in FPO. One round Sunday decides the winner in both divisions.
Paul McBeth has a one stroke advantage over Calvin Heimburg at the Monster on the Mountain event in Brooksville, Florida. Heimburg is 14 strokes ahead of third place after two rounds. McBeth’s 1084-rated round one is the difference in the standings now. Ellen Widboom leads Hannah McBeth by three in FPO. One round remains.
McBeth has played the temporary Gran Canyon course in Brooksville the past several seasons at the Throw Down The Mountain tournament. He won the 2018 TDTM by eight strokes over a field that included Heimburg.
