PDGA Majors

The USDGC is all that’s left for World Champ Paul McBeth to run-the-table on this year’s 4 majors – a historic run that’s brought on a discussion of how to define disc golf’s Grand Slam.

This season McBeth has been the talk of the disc golf world with jaw dropping play that’s amounted to record breaking rated-rounds (1132-rated final round at the Memorial Championship and then an 1119-rated final round at the Vibram Open).

The 2013 Tim Selinske United States Masters Championships came to a close today, and it was obvious that Tim was smiling down on the players as the rain held off for most of the day.  And the winners are…

When day two of the 2013 Tim Selinske United States Masters Championships was set to begin, the clouds started to build over Cedarock Park.  The Carolinas have a propensity to deliver afternoon showers in late Spring, and today would be no different.  With a two hour downpour in the early afternoon, the players would not only be challenged by the courses, but the elements as well.  Rain golf is different; some feel that a more conservative approach might assist in avoiding mistakes, while others play more aggressive in order to capitalize on others mild-mannered method.  We saw a bit of both, and the leaderboards have been shaken.

Round 1 at Valbyparken and the Latitude 64 Copenhagen Open saw some players’ discs soar while others were brought down to earth as they struggled to negotiate the OB lines and the gaps between the groves of oak and birch trees.
