Not quite a year ago, Eagle McMahon took to a knee for an inside-the-circle putt to cash-in another birdie in the midst of a dominant peformance at the 2019 United States Disc Golf Championship. He was one off the lead with 21 holes to play, and on a lead card with less decorated opponents in Chris Clemons and Nathan Queen; another PDGA Major seemed to be right there for the taking.

After a night of refreshment and enjoyment downtown in Emporia, KS players woke up bright and early to begin their first day of competition. With the sunrise came predictions of a day with strong winds and a temperature in the triple digits. This created a vicious environment for multiple rounds of tournament play. By the time the sun hit its apex in the sky thermometers read 105 degrees with a heat index of 111 for the 2013 Amateur and Junior World Championships.
