Every time Nathan Queen was announced on the first tee, the cheers were a little louder. Every time the North Carolina native laced a drive or nailed a big putt, the roar from the gallery grew.

Queen, the North Carolina native, made a lot of noise this week.

Seeded 28th entering the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate, Queen was the last one standing in Charlotte, turning in a strong and steady performance to cap the season with a career win, and a record-setting payout.

In the wide-open spaces of Winthop and the tight woods of Hornet’s Nest, Missy Gannon was smooth, calm, and collected.

It added up to a stellar finish to an already strong 2021 season.

Gannon started strong and walked it in on Sunday to take down the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate on a historic day in the sport.

The pressure and emotion picked up in a big way on Saturday at the Hornet’s Nest in Charlotte.

It all sets up for a thrilling finish at the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate.

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.

Missy Gannon had her spot in the finals of the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate locked in by the time she was putting on hole 18 on Friday.

She ran it anyway.

“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.”

She’s still got it.

Juliana Korver stepped away from her desk earlier this season and back onto the disc golf course this year looking to see if she could still compete at the professional level.

The results and the embracement of the community speak for themselves.

One of her goals was to qualify for the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship.

Drew Gibson had to change his flight home and the momentum kept rolling for Nathan Queen and Gannon Buhr on Friday at the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championships presented by Guaranteed Rate.

All three fired off the hot rounds of 7-under par and were joined by Matt Orum to move on into weekend action at the Hornet’s Nest in Charlotte.

Heather Young capped a great round with a great putt.

With that, the No. 9 seed is moving on to the semifinal round of the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate.

Young got off to a blistering start – going six down through the front nine – on her way to the hot round on Friday at the Hornet’s Nest.

After two late bogies, Young bounced back with a birdie on 18 to cap a 5-under round.

Gannon Buhr’s first PDGA win came just over six years ago.

He was 10.

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.

A single stroke is important on any leader board, but especially in the do-or-die format of the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Guaranteed Rate.

Nathan Queen knew it.

After a stellar day on the putting green already, Queen cashed in a 90-foot throw-in to turn in the hot round of the day on Thursday during Round 1 of the DGPT Championships at Hornet’s Nest Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.
