APPLING, Ga. – As PDGA World Champion Gregg Barsby sauntered down the fairway of hole 13 Saturday afternoon at the International Disc Golf Center’s W.R. Jackson Memorial Course, an eager spectator approached and quizzed him about his score. Even though he was at 7-under par for the round, the Northern California native replied that he wasn’t keeping track of his numbers, instead focusing on staying in the moment.

JEFFERSONVILLE, Vt. – A Happy Gilmore-esque exuberance flowed from the crowd that was perched on the ridge just above hole 11 at Fox Run Meadows, a product of the liquid sunshine that drenched the Green Mountains during round three of the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships. And most of that energy was pointed in one direction.
MAE NAM, Thailand – Paige Pierce’s 2018 season started with a bang, as the Texas native shot a 1021-rated 10-under par 48 here Thursday during the opening round of the Samui Swine Classic V. Playing on the feature card with defending champion Philo Brathwaite, who also tossed a 48, Pierce’s well-rounded game was on display with crisp backhand and forehand drives; accurate midranges and putters on almost all the short, must-get birdie holes; and consistency inside the circle.
