Disc golf is returning to the Worldwide Leader in Sports this weekend.
At 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 14, the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate is set to air on ESPN2.
Both fans of the sport, as well as casual viewers, will see the exciting conclusion to the 2021 DGPT season in this two-hour event, which will be the second time that disc golf will be featured on the ESPN family of networks in 2021 and third time in the past two years.
Drew Gibson came up clutch in back-to-back-to-back shots to end the semifinal round. Nathan Queen, the Cinderalla story of these championships, let all of the Queen City know he was still in contention on hole 18.
Meanwhile, Adam Hammes torched the course from the top card, as did Paul McBeth.
“It’s going to be a battle at the end,” Gannon told Jamie Thomas of the Disc Golf Network. “Making that 55-footer might actually mean something. That’s why I gave it a run, to make sure I had a practice putt in there.”
Since then, Buhr has continued growing, literally, on the disc golf course, racking up wins at the amateur level, including two PDGA Junior World Championships, and over the past year, turning in a breakout year in the professional ranks.
