Seppo Paju designed temp course at the Song Festival Grounds in Tallinn, Estonia. Prodigy has put up a series of 4 YT videos detailing his process - final one here
MPO and FPO playing the same course & layout but different pars.

Some highlights and final round live(?) on Disc Golf Stream's YT
 
Tattar with a top 5 MPO level score today, -8 by the MPO layout's par (same course), rated 1054 compared to the MPO for same score 1056

Augustsson kept up his R1 pace for R2, still 36 holes to go for those trying to chase him down
After R2, FPO field is mostly sorted by rating but MPO has a bit more of a shuffle going on currently with a few 'unknowns' in the top 10. Could just be some of the players rounding into tournament form mid-summer.
 
Kristin Tattar with a 1054 rated round 2. Do we need to reach for the record books?
The PDGA.com list appears to have last been updated in 2018.... but if nothing new has emerged this is the second highest rated round in the 60-65 SSA range, behind Paige Pierce's 2018 Disc Side of Heaven 1059.

(edit: had to add "Pierce" because... well... Bjerkaas is on the list too, albeit a bit lower at 1032, now third highest in that SSA range)
 
Fun fact, Kristins round 2 would have been top 5 rounds in MPO
And she would have been in the top 10 in MPO total

She's built a 13 stroke lead going into Rd 4.
 
Has the same feel as EO... For those of us following primarily to see if she can get to 1000.

The margin she's smoking the field by suddenly shrinks as soon as she's secured a giant lead. At EO she beat the field by 4 and 6 before tying the second best score in the last two rounds. This weekend she beat the field by 4 and 8... and then down to 2.

Is it a minor quibble? Yeah.
But every round over four digits helps, and every round under four digits hurts. Being the first FPO player to get to 1000 is a tough goal.

Who knows, maybe her play over the next few months/year will be so great that 995 will be an inconsequential bump.
 
What the f is this hole 7 par 4 that 3 FPO players took a 10 on?!

300-350' low ceiling uphill drive just to get into good position, 400' for an ideal birdie look. Then you can hit a gap to lay up (usually another 300' for the 880-940 rated crowd) to about 70-100' or you can go for it through another low ceiling gap onto an island the size of c1.

If you don't stick the island (staying inbounds) you throw from where you were last in bounds before the island until you stick the island.

If you play aggressive on your 2nd (or 3rd after less than ideal drive/upshot) you may find yourself with a somewhat tricky 150-180' upshot over and over, a la EO hole #16 (kind of).

It's not really a hard hole, over 2/3 of the FPO should be able to get a pretty easy par or bogey consistently, but it is nervewracking and easy to tincup.

Edit: idk how Henna took a 10, she's the only one to birdie it (r1) and she should be able to make that upshot with her eyes closed, even with the gusty headwind there today.

Looks like she very out of focus today. .. . easy t odo with that lead, but bad for that "hunt for 1000"
 
Does not look that good for Worlds . 5 rounds,,,,,,,, will Kristins arm hold up for that? her last round in +3 rounds tournaments has not been great
 
another great tournament for Silva Saarinen. . does she even got a sponsor?
Fun to see her play Worlds, cant be easy to go play at the other side of the World at her age

Nope, still unsponsored.

She was sub-900 rated less than a year ago and her biggest finish until late last season was winning the FJ18 division at the European Championships in '21. But then she won some bigger European tournaments in july/august and has been on a tear ever since.

She's 20, I believe, so only 3 years younger than Henna. Still very young, although it's crazy to think that Henna was probably the top FPO player in Finland at 14 years old.

for some reason i thought she was younger. . .but still must be the best non sponsored FPO player , she has in the last few months beten lots of full time pros
 
Does anyone know what happened with Kristin Tattar? They briefly mentioned on this morning's coverage of FPO DGLO that she may have injury issues?

It is good she build up such a big lead.
