What to watch
The US Champion is one of the most coveted titles in disc golf. This year, the title is even more significant because the USDGC is the only Major event of the year. Every other Major planned for 2020 was cancelled due to covid-19. So who will be the 2020 US Champion? Frontrunners include:
- Defending US Champ James Conrad of Blacksburg, Va.
- 2-time World Champ Ricky Wysocki, of Campobello, S.C.
- 2-Time US Champion and 5-Time World Champ Paul McBeth of Huntington Beach, CA.
The USDGC’s Feature Card will be covered during Round 1 on Oct. 7. Tune-in to watch a talent packed card including James Conrad test their mettle against the tough-as-nails Winthrop Arena Course.
After the first round, coverage will then be based on score leaders. Expect lead / chase card coverage to begin in the early afternoon.
Women’s National Championship
One of the many effects of the global pandemic was an abbreviated pro tour. Many events planned for the spring were cancelled including the US Women’s Disc Golf Championship, which was slated to play in May in California.
However, top women will still get a chance to earn a national title. A special Women’s National Championship will be held alongside the USDGC this year.
This is not the first time a women’s national champion was crowned at Winthrop. The first three PDGA Majors used to determine a Women’s National Champion took place at Winthrop alongside the USDGC from 1999-2001.
Live coverage will also feature this field as well. Expect to see the top women in the game like:
- 5-time World Champ Paige Pierce (and four-time USDGC competitor)
- 2014 World Champ Catrina Allen
Don’t miss it!
Being without live spectators is certainly a disappointment to everyone involved in the USDGC and hopes are high for their return next year.
However, 2020 digital coverage will bring you just as close to the action. And just like every other year, the Winthrop Arena Course promises drama at every turn. We promise, you won’t be able to look away.
