  5. On Season’s Eve, A Look At Last Year In Las Vegas

    Garrett Gurthie Las Vegas Ace

    It’s the night before the season and if you’re itching for live disc golf coverage, satisfy that urge with a little look back at last season’s battle in the desert.

    I advise you to tune in to coverage from the 2020 Las Vegas Challenge. It’s an incredible re-watch. 

    The event feels like it took place nearly two years ago. The sport, and much of the world, were unaffected by the Covid-19 pandemic that paused and plagued all professional sports just a few weeks after the event. The galleries and lack of masks are an immediate realization of how different the world is from a year ago.

    Connor O’Reilly Las Vegas Ace

    Moments after Noah Meintsma draws metal off the tee on hole 6 of the Innova course at the Wildhorse Golf Club, Connor O’Reilly found the chains for an ace on the 222-foot shot while practicing for the Las Vegas Challenge.

    O’Reilly is sponsored by Latitude 64 and OTB Discs and is hitting the road full time in 2021 after purchasing a van over the winter. He threw a “fresh” Westside Shield  for the ace. The Texan is currently rated 1013.

    Most disc golfers express their love for the sport by getting some new discs, a fresh pair of trail shoes, or a PDGA membership. Joseph Caldwell made a song about it.

    The long-time musician just released “The Greatest Game,” available now on iTunes and Apple Music.

    Paige Pierce and Rick Wysocki were in Fountain Hill, Arizona practicing the 9-hole safari layout that will be used for the Disc Golf Pro Tour All-Stars weekend event.

    Pierce breaks down the changes in the video, and the fourth hole the two play looks extra fun, adding in another drive to a peninsula hole. The new layout may yield some interesting results in the match play format.

  27. Lizotte Will Not Be Ready For Season Start, Continues Elbow Rehab

    Simon Lizotte

    After battling persistent elbow pain in his right throwing arm since early last season, Simon Lizotte announced that despite months of rehabilitation he will not be returning to competition until April 2021 at the earliest.

    “I’m not allowed to throw for three weeks now,” said Lizotte of his current plan. “After the next three weeks I’m starting an eight week build up to throw again. Starting light and going harder and harder every week. That means I will not be able to compete until April. I am not 100% sure yet if I will jump on tour in April or try and play some local events first and start the tour on the west coast swing in May. That is to be determined.”

    One of the biggest free agents this offseason has signed his first disc manufacturer sponsorship. Ezra Aderhold agreed to a 2-year deal to join the Discraft Elite Team through 2022.

    “I think Discraft is the most exciting company with the highest ceiling,” said Aderhold, who was pursued for sponsorship by multiple manufacturers. “I also love their discs. Since I think they’re the best company, I felt like I had to choose them.”
