Adding a little competition to their World Championship preparation, there were a number of big performances on Sunday during the Field Events at the 2021 PDGA Pro Masters Disc Golf World Championships in Tennessee.

Now, it’s time to chase a world title.

The final tuneup came on Sunday as players visited Warriors’ Path State Park in Colonial Heights, Tennessee to compete in four events: Long Drive, Mini Golf, Putting and the Skillshot Challenge presented by EDGE.
