Pickle4 Team 07-11-2024

The PPA Tour was back in action with the Orange County Cup 🍊 and delivered some major upsets in San Clemente, California, specifically in the men’s brackets. The APP’s #1 player, Christopher Haworth, claimed the gold medal 🥇 in men’s singles, topping Ben Johns and the current #1 seed, Federiko Staksrud. JW Johnson and Dylan Frazier had more than one reason to celebrate. Not only did they take home the gold in men’s doubles, but with this win, Dylan Frazier earns the #1 ranking for men’s doubles and JW Johnson claims the #3 spot. With that, Frazier and Johnson will become the new #1 ranked team. 💪 Anna Leigh Waters had another clean sweep taking home yet another triple crown.

The APP Tour traveled to California the following weekend for the Newport Beach Open. After his PPA victory, Christopher Haworth remained on top with another gold medal in men’s singles. 👏 Megan Fudge had a banner weekend, taking home three medals: a gold medal in women’s singles, a gold in mixed doubles with partner Jack Munro, and a silver in women’s doubles with partner Jill Braverman. 🥇🥇🥈 Yana Newell and Emily Cederquist took the gold in women’s doubles. Eric Lange and Max Manthou also had reason to celebrate as their gold medal in men’s doubles was the first ever professional gold for either partner.
