An Appointment with Destiny
History was made Saturday at the Emporia Country Club as Kristin Tattar became the first Estonian and only the second European to win a PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championship.

Gossage — the underdog, the Cinderella Story, the improbable, whatever you want to call it — has strung together four consistent rounds of ice-cold disc golf to enter the final lap through the Emporia Country Club with a three-stroke lead with his first PDGA Major and largest career win by far squarely in his sights.
