Looking at the GK PRO R1 . . Eveliina and Henna are SOO good of the tee, far and straight every time. . not even a player like Paige is close, shes all over the place of the tee.

I'd say that even if Eveliina can be 60% c1x for a tournament, she should almost always podium, if not win. She's the best thrower on tour, in terms of power+accuracy

Setting herself up for an opportunity to redeem her Waco and Champions Cup performances. Would be great to see but I can’t say I’m optimistic she’ll stay hot from C1X with Jomez etc popping around.

she was on the GKPro card yesterday as well as live. I don't think it will make a difference for her today. It probably helped more that Henna was on a card with her, so she was probably more in a comfort zone due to that

Feels like every single one of the top 20 FPO players have at least one big weakness. . might be the reason that FPO is fun to watch. .

Misses her first tester (12’?) of the day on hole 2 with Henna off the card.

Backhand+forehand I agree. I think Henna is the best backhand player in FPO, overall, but she has almost no forehand and her putts are just bad.

This has to be one of the best courses I’ve seen FPO play. I like that it tests many skills: Accurate drives, finesse approaches, challenging greens, punishing rough, technical fairways. It’s one of the few times I’ve seen players have to dig into a wide array of shots and disc choices. I’ve seen rollers, overhands, Sky Annies, FH Hyzers, all the shots are represented.

I’ve heard discussion in the past that FPO and MPO should be split on the DGPT, but I’ve always resisted this notion. This weekend may change my mind. It’s just not entertaining to see the same skill set tested over and over with the same handful of players in the winner’s circle.
