Paige Charges Back Through Rain

Heavy storm clouds loomed over Nokia on Moving Day morning, yet all was quiet on the first tee at Nokia DiscGolfPark as the FPO lead card launched their drives down the trachea of hole 1, straight into the belly of “The Beast.”

Paige Pierce set the tone right off the bat with a fierce Circle 2 putt that echoed across all corners of the park. Unfazed by Paige´s power move, Eveliina also smashed the chains with malicious intent from her own slightly compromised lie 8 meters down the hill by the edge of the shrubbery.

It’s time.

After three long years in which the world has battled a pandemic and disc golf has experienced massive growth, a PDGA Major finally returns to the international stage for the 2022 European Open presented by Discmania.

The long-awaited return to Finland and the beloved and revered Beast course at Nokia DiscGolfPark in Nokia begins Thursday and runs through Sunday, when two PDGA Major champions will be crowned.

It’s the 10th running of the European Open, which began as a PDGA Major in 2006.

Legends of the sport and the future meet this week in Illinois.

Masters Worlds has long been a reunion, a gathering of friends and competitors with relationships and rivalries that go back maybe decades. Juniors Worlds, in its own way, is becoming very similar.

“When I woke up this morning, I could not get the thought of me winning out of my head and I was trying so hard to calm my mind,” King said. “I just had a feeling when I woke up that I was going to take it down.”

The 2022 United States Women's Disc Golf Championship was full of numbers.

Hailey King took down her first PDGA Major title. Jennifer Allen won her second Major and 150th career win. In her 400th event, Barrett White won her 10th Major and sixth USWDGC crown. Pam Reineke and Sandy Gast, the 1992 Co-PDGA Rookies of the Year, won their combined 13th Majors. Two sisters — Therese Cuevas and Athena Cuevas — are now Major champions.

It’s going to be an incredible sprint to the finish in Madison, Wisconsin.

The fourth and final day of the 2022 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship has arrived, and the competition for a PDGA Major title is intense.

“I’ll definitely be nervous because I’m always nervous – that’s nothing new,” said Emily Yale, the leader in FA1. “I’m glad I’m doing well and hope that I show up tomorrow and play well, focus on my shots, and have a great time with the same card.

“It’s going to be really fun.”
