All four of these long bombers will now be heading to the Big Arm Big Heart Distance Showcase Saturday soon after the final round ends.

They will each have several discs to bomb over the Winthrop Lake. Fans will have the opportunity all week to purchase these throws for a $20 donation to Throw Pink. Each disc will be autographed by one of the four throwers, and if it makes it across the lake, the donator can bring it home. Donate early in the week at the USDGC Pro Shop to ensure you’re a part of the action.

One Dark Horse competitor will also join the four throwers.

Discmania has provided S-Line DD2 discs for the showcase.

If a shot lands inside the one pink-banded DISCatcher Pro target located across the lake, then $25,000 will go toward ending breast cancer via Throw Pink. If that happens, a DISCatcher Pro target will be awarded both to the fan that paid for the throw and the thrower.
