Twenty-two years ago, five-time PDGA World Champion Juliana Korver won the first edition of the Women's National Championship, besting eight players in the FPO division in a tournament that had a total field of 21 players.

Beginning Friday, Korver is back in action at the United States Women's Disc Golf Championships and is one of a record-setting 267 players across 16 divisions in the first PDGA Pro Major of 2021. Korver is competing in a 21-player Pro Master Women 40+ division while the Open field includes 63 players, the highest number in the professional division in tournament history.

The tournament field includes a wide range of PDGA numbers, from Sue Horn, PDGA #68, to Marissa Whitacre, PDGA #178948, as well as age-protected divisions ranging from 12 & under to 70-plus. It features another five-time world champion in Paige Pierce, who is gunning for her fourth USWDGC title. Pierce is currently tied with Des Reading with three USWDGC titles.
