Everyone knew this Worlds would be special, but nobody knew just how special it would turn out to be.
Just hours after Catrina Allen snatched victory from the jaws of defeat with a gutsy approach shot that landed safe on the OB line that surrounds The Fort’s daunting 18th green, James Conrad stepped up to a similar shot on that very same hole.

OGDEN, Utah — The journey, with its highs and lows, is what makes the result that much sweeter.
Sitting on the edge of the 18th green on the 90th hole of the 2021 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championship, Catrina Allen, through the process, the grind, the ups, downs, met that goal.
She’s now a two-time PDGA World Champion.
“Hard work, determination, never giving up, no matter what was thrown my way the past couple of years,” Allen said, emotion showing and rightfully so. “The amount of support I have right now is incredible.”
