With a three stroke lead, Noah Meintsma just needs one more good round to become the 2015 Performance Flight Champ on Saturday. However, Anthony Hauf, who beat his projected 86 by 10 strokes during Friday’s Round 3, has his own plans to take the flight. Others near the top of the Performance Flight after three rounds are: Brock Shepherd (-20), and Ezra Robinson and Jeffrey Spring are at (-19).
After Friday’s round, Hauf said he’s going to try to finish strong for the final round by correcting a few mistakes from Round 3.
“The only holes that get me are Hole 5 and ‘888’ (Hole 13) and if I can make corrections on those I can shoot under the course par,” said Hauf.
Meintsma beat his projected 76 by four strokes today, but thought he could do better.
“I just had too many OB’s today,” said Meintsma. But a bright spot was making a four on Hole 13 for the third time in a row.
Tomorrow, the forecasted rain could have a definite effect on play. Meintsma says he’ll try to keep his disc as dry as possible and may slow down his swing a bit to ensure accuracy and save a few strokes.
