Disc Golf Hall of Fame

Induction into the Disc Golf Hall of Fame is an honor reserved for only a very few of those who will ever pick up a disc. It is beyond a world record or championship title. It transcends celebrity and commercial success. It cannot be bought; it must be earned as much by character as by skill. It must be earned, most of all, through the respect of one’s peers.

DiscGolfer Magazine has added a true heavyweight to its writing staff with the addition of Disc Golf Hall of Fame member, Elaine King, as the new Associate Editor.

The role, which is freelance in nature, will have King contributing a feature article or interview for each of the publication’s quarterly installments beginning with the upcoming Winter 2021 Issue.

Event Info

A nine-shot win would have been plenty for Catrina Allen at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, but an unlucky number proved to be even better.

A crash of chains, then an audible groan of agony from the gallery.

Another crash, this time followed by a guttural scream of “Let’s go!”

Then, celebration.

After 54 holes weren’t enough to decide the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, it was only fitting that the event came down to a playoff between two surefire future Hall of Famers.

It’s no secret Ricky Wysocki has been a dominant force on the course over the last two seasons. Yesterday at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic, though, he unleashed havoc during the most unexpected moment: a backup.

If Catrina Allen’s first round was “Steady,” her second round at the Ed Headrick Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic’s W.R. Jackson Memorial Course was scorching by comparison. Not only was her 1000-rated performance the best in the field, giving her a nine-stroke advantage over second place, but it was also the only to register under par on the event’s second day.
