Two days and 35 holes into the 2018 Delaware Disc Golf Challenge, Sarah Hokom had yet to capture the lead from the very recently crowned world champion  Paige Bjerkaas. However, on the 18th hole of Saturday's second round, a birdie against Bjerkaas' bogey finally put Hokom at the top of the leaderboard.

On the same land that was once the site of The Battle of Iron Hill, the 1777 Revolutionary War engagement between 800 American and 2,000 British soldiers, a different kind of battle has begun.

In a milestone year, 2017 saw a 15% jump in active PDGA membership. Tournaments have seen a 13% increase this past year to keep up with the sport’s rapid growth. As disc golf gains momentum and further recognition in the sports community, the stakes are higher than ever to create a seamless tournament experience. Between the course prep, registration, staffing and merchandising, balancing the process components can have its challenges.
