“It’ll really hit when I called my mom,” Allen said. “I almost dropped out on Monday to be with her. She had a bad surgery and a rough go, but she told me to come play and there was a reason I was supposed to be here. So, it’s special in many ways.”
As a disc golf coach in central Ohio, Schick, a 30-plus-year veteran of the sport, is teaching the game to new players week-in and week-out.
“The sport is just exploding right now – everywhere,” Schick said. “I teach lessons three nights a week and I don’t know any of these players that are looking to learn the game. Before, it was word of mouth from people in our club or area, but now it’s just all brand-new people who are hooked and want to improve.”

Ohn Scoggins suffered an injury setback early in the round, but she powered through and her competitors, who are vying for a PDGA Major title like her, were there to help each step of the way.
“It was painful, but there’s nothing I can do but play through it,” said Scoggins, who maintained her one-stroke lead in FP40 at the 2021 PDGA Tim Selinske U.S. Masters Championships. “It bothered me so much, sidearm, backhand or just standing there. This is the first time I’ve gone through something like this, so I hope tomorrow is better.”
