    With seven pro A-tiers around the States this weekend, the touring players have ample chances to stay sharp before heading down south.

    DGPT Silver Series: The Maine State Championships

    Sticking in the northeast, the Silver Series continues in Maine, and many of the pros who have been on the DGPT circuit since the Green Mountain Championship have stuck around.
    Simon Lizotte and Garrett Gurthie headline the MPO side, and Jessica Weese and Sarah Hokom top the FPO field.
    Casey White won last year’s event by one stroke when he was sub-1000 rated for his first A-tier victory. Maine’s Nicole Russell returns as well to defend her crown.
    Live scores can be followed on PDGA Live. The players will be playing both Pineland and Bittersweet Ridge.

  13. How Did A Discraft Hornet End Up On Gigi Hadid’s Instagram?

    Gigi Hadid with a Discraft Hornet

    Fashion model Gigi Hadid is married to former One Direction member Zayn Malik, and the couple are expecting their first child basically any day now. While many people are wondering if these throwback pics Hadid posted on Instagram have something to do with the birth, we’re of course wondering how the heck did a Discraft Hornet end up as a prop in these baby bump photos?

    Hadid’s post doesn’t give us much intel about where she is with this horse and the out of production Discraft midrange, so we’re basically left to wonder why this scenario exists. Hadid has never posted about disc golf before to her 58 million followers on Instagram, there are not baskets visible in the pictures, and besides the presumed photographer, there are no other people around that Hadid may be playing catch with.

  22. Video: Kevin Jones Ace On Hole 16 At Maple Hill Has To Be Seen To Believe

    Kevin Jones Maple Hill Ace

    Kevin Jones just won a hole in the most unimaginable way possible during the OTB Skins Series at Maple Hill.

    GK Productions caught Jones’s 530-foot ace on hole 16 while filming the skins match. To make the 530-foot ace even more difficult, Jones had to navigate the wooded fairway, low ceiling, and elevation change. And did it in the rain. And FELL WHILE THROWING.

    It only makes sense that ace whisperer Jeremy Koling was playing in the match along with Jones and witnessed the throw-in. Jones is also ok after a kinda scary tumble on the tee pad.

  23. Who Is Dan Brooks-Wells?

    With one of the earliest tee times of the Green Mountain Championship, Dan Brooks-Wells put down a scorching 10-under par round on Brewster Ridge to open the tournament. Only four players at the 2019 GMC were able to match or better that score, and DBW is sitting in second after one round in 2020.

    “I know I can hit all the lines,” said Brooks-Wells. “But stringing them all together without a mistake was not something I expected today.”

    So who is the sub-1000-rated pro from the Lehigh Valley?

  27. Brian Earhart Withdraws From Ledgestone

    After straining an abdominal muscle during practice for the Ledgestone Open on Tuesday, Brian Earhart withdrew from the event after finishing round 1.

    ” I tried “playing around it” today but there was no chance I could compete at the highest level that way,” Earhart said. “Northwood and Lake Eureka both require full commitment behind all of your shots, and I simply can’t do that this weekend. I know it’s the right thing to do, all I need is a week or so of rest to recover, but I’m still really sad to be missing one of my favorite events.”

    Guess we won’t be getting another ace on camera from Earhart this weekend.

  28. Weekend Watch: July 31-August 2

    Here’s a quick look around the PDGA schedule at notable players and tournament plans this weekend.

    Mid America Open – DGPT Silver Series

    In between Elite events, the Disc Golf Pro Tour heads to the Mid America Open in Columbia, Missouri, playing one of the top-rated course on Disc Golf Course Review.

    Pros like Kevin Jones, Adam Hammes, Nikko Locastro, and more are taking on the John Houck-designed  Harmony Bends. The course may only be 6,900-feet, but it’s got teeth. Emerson Keith, who is not in the field, won here in 2019, and Zackeriath Johnson, who is in the field and already picked up an ace this weekend, tied for second. The FPO division is not as deep, and Lisa Fajkus is the top-rated player. Last year’s winner, Courtney Cannon, is in the event.

    Väinö Mäkelä is out front of MPO after 18 holes, with a 1062-rated round finishing on an ace. He is three stokes ahead of a field with 15 players rated 1000 or better, including Seppo Paju, Jesse Nieminen, and Severi Saviniemi. Natural Born Disc Golfer will have round coverage of the event.

    Eveliina Salonen’s 968-rated opener has her six strokes clear in the lead. Henna Blomroos is eight back.
