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,
Day one of the 2015 Pro Worlds is in the books and with a tournament this long we can officially draw absolutely no conclusions as to what is going to happen in the days to come. There is simply too much golf left to even begin to make any long-term predictions. Only two of the 13 pools that make up the 400+ competitors here in Pittsburgh played more than one round today. To say this is only the beginning, is truly an understatement.
The 2015 Pro Worlds players meeting went off without a hitch on Monday night at the amazing and beautiful Senator John Heinz History Center. 400+ competitors from 10 different countries and 46 different states and provinces filled the center and happily toured its newest exhibit, "The Evolution of the Flying Disc", before the meeting began. Even the Mayor of Pittsburgh, Bill Peduto (pictured above), couldn't resist stopping in to welcome everyone and wish them all good luck! A lot of great things happened today and we only expect more of that to come with competition beginning on Tuesday morning.
