After three days of mind-bending heat, mother nature finally gave the competitors of the 2018 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships a much-needed break from the extreme conditions. With Emporia, Kansas finally feeling more like the Midwest and less like the Middle East, there were no excuses for those wanting to make the cut for the Final 9 showdowns at Emporia Country Club.

Two days down and two to go here in Emporia, Kansas as the 2018 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships presented by Dynamic Discs rages on. With several rounds already in the books, the time has come for the competitors to start making moves if they want to climb the ranks and/or make the finals for Saturday.

As the afternoon rounds came to a close at the 2018 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships, it was easy to see that the intense heat from the day had taken its toll on many. Two rounds of disc golf in 100+ degree temperatures is a challenge all its own. Add to that the stress and pressure of a world championship on the line and you've got yourself a recipe for a physically and mentally exhausting day.

In the last few years, the PDGA Disc Golf World Championships have seen a lot of changes. With the rapid growth of the sport over the last decade, what was once just two events has now been split into four separate world championships: Pro Worlds, Am Worlds, Pro Masters Worlds, and the PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships.

Field Events for the 2018 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships take place from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Emporia Middle School in Emporia, Kansas, USA. All events must be completed by 4:00 p.m. meaning that 3:00 p.m. will be the cutoff time to begin mini golf, putting competition, and/or SkillShot.
