We think back to last year’s exciting PDGA World Championships and how exciting the final few rounds were before the most memorable playoff. The way this year’s tournament is playing out, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see equally as large fireworks in Pittsburgh this weekend for the 2015 Pro Worlds.

With two full rounds remaining before the finals, the leaderboard continues to see many changes after a wild day on Thursday.

Two new names sit atop the leaderboards of the 2015 Pro Worlds, but new to being in the lead they certainly are not. Sarah Hokom #34563, having won the PDGA Professional World Championships in 2012 in Charlotte, NC, knows exactly how to manage the stress of and compete with the pressure of a world title hanging over her head. Will Schusterick #29064 has yet to add the title of “World Champion” to his résumé, but as a 3X US Disc Golf Champion,

The 2014 United States Disc Golf Championship had it all. Will Schusterick #29064 became a 3X USDGC Champion after winning a sudden death playoff against the world’s #1 ranked player, Paul McBeth #27523. 2X Women’s World Champion, Paige Pierce #29190, became the first woman to take the gold in Performance Flight. And last but not least, an awesome distance showcase over-the-lake wrapped it all up with Jeremy Koling #33705 becoming the first to ever slam a driver into the chains.

Winning the 2010 USDGC told something to Will Schusterick: disc golf is what you’re supposed to being doing with your life.
