From first-time PDGA Elite Series winners or players adding to their legacy, and a legendary shot in between, the 2021 disc golf season has been one for the record books.

It all wraps up at Hornet's Nest in Charlotte.

Beginning Thursday, the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate is set to test the best of the best in the sport in a bracket-style finale to cap off the season.

The brackets, based on regular-season points from Disc Golf Pro Tour events, are set (see below) with the first round of the MPO field kicking off on Thursday.

Sixteen players —seeds 17 through 32— will compete with the top four scores advancing to Friday's quarterfinal round, where eight players (seeds nine through 16) will be waiting.

Then it's on to the semifinals where the top eight seeds — Ricky Wysocki (1), Eagle McMahon (2), Calvin Heimburg (3), Paul McBeth (4), Adam Hammes (5), Kyle Klein (6), Kevin Jones (7), James Conrad (8) — will begin their play.

Quarterfinal action for the FPO field kicks off on Friday, including 2020 DGPT Champion Hailey King. The top four scores will advance to the semifinals. They will join Paige Pierce (1), Catrina Allen (2), Missy Gannon (3) and Sarah Hokom (4) in the hunt for the 2021 DGPT title.

Then, on Sunday, four will remain and be competing for a record payout.

If the rest of the season is any indication, get ready for an exciting sendoff to 2021.
