Lizotte Wins Distance
German crusher, Simon Lizotte, took the US Distance crown with a throw of 648 feet.
Others throwing far enough to make the Saturday distance showcase were: David Wiggins Jr. of High Point, N.C. (639’), Juho Parviainen of Finland (594’), and Jeremy Koling of Indian Trail, N.C. (573’).
Be sure to hang around after the last putt drops on Saturday to watch these distance specialists bomb shots across Winthrop Lake. This is always a spectacular closing event at the USDGC. Your presence is even more important this year as a fan vote will decide the showcase winner. See you there!
