More Magic at Milo

We expected magic at the 2024 Beaver State Fling presented by Innova and we got it! After a dramatic, back-and-forth final round, Team Innova’s Ohn Scoggins faced off against Holyn Handley in a playoff for the FPO title. Ohn came in 2nd place, continuing Team Innova’s streak with an FPO player on the podium of every DGPT event so far this season. In the MPO, Calvin Heimburg set a new course record in his opening round and finished his tournament tied for 4th place.

From DGPT Podium to Masters World Championship

Ohn Scoggins had one of the best FPO putting performances of recent memory at last weekend’s Beaver State Fling presented by Innova. Though she lost in a playoff to Holyn Handley, Ohn still put on a display to be proud of. 

Ohn led the field in C1x putting at 97%, only missing one putt inside-the-circle all weekend. She led in C2 putting, making an impressive 44% of her C2 putts. She had the longest average putt and the highest total putting distance. The stat that really displays just how dominant Ohn was on the green is her Strokes Gained Putting – Ohn’s 15.54 Strokes Gained Putting is more than double the next most in the field. She was lights out with her JK Aviar all tournament.

Ohn is currently in 2nd place of the DGPT World Standings, only 6 points behind Holyn Handley in 1st. This week, Ohn is playing in the Masters World Championship, where she is a heavy favorite. If she takes it down, that will be four consecutive Masters Worlds titles for Scoggins. What a legend!

Innova Top Moments and Performances

Holly Finley said the Beaver State Fling is her favorite tournament of the year and that was before she got an epic ace in the first round! Holly got a hole-in-one on the 197-foot, hole 13 with a beautiful, turnover shot using her Mako. She finished the event in a tie for 16th and led the field in Strokes Gained C1x.
