EMPORIA, Kansas — The marathon became a sprint Saturday at the 2021 PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships as each division was cut to four players and the results came in fast and furious on the famous 18th green of the Emporia Country Club.
In the end, nine world champions were crowned, capping a weeklong celebration of junior disc golf.
The seventeen-year-old from Hubbard Lake, MI, who has, until this point, quietly kept pace with the defending champion, Melody Castruita, thoroughly outpaced Castruita and the rest of the division through 36 holes on Friday.
