Innova’s FPO Team Shines in Stockton
Innova’s women showed just how deep our FPO team is at last weekend’s OTB Open. We had four players in the top ten, with Ohn Scoggins taking 2nd and Emily Beach taking 3rd. Those were Ohn and Emily’s best DGPT finishes so far this season. For the MPO, Calvin Heimburg continued a perfect streak of DGPT top tens in 2023.
Ohn Ties for Most Podium Finishes in FPO
Ohn Scoggins took 2nd place at last weekend’s OTB Open, making for her fifth podium finish at a DGPT event so far this year. She is tied for the most podiums of any player in the division.
Ohn’s strong result in Stockton is proof that even on the longest of courses, putting is the most important element of the game. Though many of her competitors outdrove Ohn on the long holes of Swanson Park, her performance on the green more than made up for it. Ohn led the field in Strokes Gained Putting, and was 2nd in both C1 and C2 Putting percentages. Ohn was also 2nd in the field in Scramble percentage.
Scoggins moved into 2nd place of the Disc Golf Pro Tour Points Standings for the year. She is currently the 2nd highest rated player in the FPO at 977 and the 3rd ranked player in the world by Udisc. That makes Ohn undoubtedly the best FPO player on tour yet to win a DGPT event. With her consistency week after week, it feels almost inevitable that Ohn has a big win upcoming this season.
Beach’s Best Result of 2023
Team Champion’s newest addition, Emily Beach, finished 3rd place at the 2023 OTB Open, her best result at a DGPT event so far this year. Emily looked solid both off the tee and on the green. She led the field in Strokes Gained C1x and was 3rd in Strokes Gained Putting. She was also 2nd in C2 Hits in Regulation. With such a great balance in her abilities, Emily Beach has all the skills needed to win a Pro Tour event.
Emily is still relatively new to the tour. Last year, in her first full season, she won Rookie of the Year. She podiumed at two Elite Series events in 2022 and had top finishes at multiple others. As she gains more experience on lead cards at the most prestigious events, Emily will be a player to watch out for.
