A PDGA World Championship title is a life-changing and career-defining achievement.

With that crown comes notoriety, a place amongst disc golf's best. Every tournament after that victory, the player will be announced as a World Champion. Their name will be etched into the history of the sport forever.

But first, the battle must be won.

Beginning Tuesday, the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championship returns after a year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What awaits is a disc golf landscape that has grown exponentially since the 2019 champions — Paige Pierce and Paul McBeth — were crowned. There are more eyes on the sport than ever. There are more competitors than ever. The stakes seem even higher.

Everything is bigger.

From McBeth and Pierce chasing their sixth titles to Kristin Tattar, Silver Latt and Albert Tamm representing their home nations, to an FPO field that includes Juliana Korver and Des Reading and an MPO field full of players looking for their first crown, the 2021 Pro Worlds are set to deliver compelling storylines throughout the five-round tournament.

It will take a mastery of every style of golf to reach the pinnacle as the players battle the wooded and technical track at The Fort as well as the open, OB-laden Mulligans Course in Ogden, Utah. Every throw, every decision will be magnified in the marathon event that will test players both physically and mentally through Saturday's final putts.

From live coverage to six post-production teams, every inch of the action will be covered as those stories of triumph and heartbreak unfold before our eyes.

It's time to crown a World Champion.
