SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – Despite being the world’s second-ranked disc golfer, the knock on Ricky Wysocki #38008 in recent memory has been that, come crunch time, he wilts under the pressure.

When the last putt of a multi-day disc golf event hits the chains, take a look around at the staff and the volunteers. They look pretty happy, right? If you’ve ever ran or helped put on a tournament, you probably know the feeling. The weight being lifted off your shoulders. The joy of knowing that soon you’ll be back home with your family and friends, sleeping comfortably and stress-free. It’s weird to think that after months and months of prep work, all you want once the event finally begins, is for it to end.

The first day of a PDGA National Tour disc golf event is always interesting. Today was no different, as the first of three rounds of the “Steady” Ed Memorial Masters Cup took place on the DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course here in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA. Playing DeLaveaga is a seemingly endless battle on the mind and body. The easy holes aren’t easy and the difficult holes can be devastating. A tournament played on this course means there is no favorite. It can and will make or break competitors in any and every division.
