University of Massachusetts-Amherst junior Joey Antosca has only been playing disc golf for two years. In that short time, he has amassed a 950 player rating and, in related news, some occasional jealousy from fellow players.
“Yes,” Antosca said with a laugh. “And I tell them I’m jealous of the people who started when they were 10 years old as opposed to 19 years old.”
Now, the 21-year-old operations and information management major has another reason to engender envy: He’s a National Disc Golf Champion.
