The PPA tour wrapped up its Tournament of Champions over the weekend, and the competition was intense. The tournament took place Tuesday, August 15th, through Saturday, August 18th in Brigham City, Utah. After an exciting tournament, two more pros walked away joining the Triple Crown ranks . Both Tyson McGuffin and Catherine Parenteau went gold three times, now joining Ben Johns, Anna Leigh Waters, and Simone Jardim as the only players in PPA Tournament history to earn a Triple Crown.
The weekend prior, the APP returned to St. Louis for the second year running for the 2023 APP St. Louis Open. It was a great weekend for the sport as the podium was filled with new names. In fact, four APP pros earned their first gold medals of the season in front of another large crowd. Will we continue to see newer names at the top?
