    Heather Young announced on Instagram today that she will be taking a break from competing on the professional disc golf tour.

    “I am going to be taking at least several months off from the disc golf tour,” she wrote. “I’ve had some on-going struggles with what my plans are for the future with disc golf and life in general. While dealing with some of these issues I feel like I have lost my desire to play, which makes it very hard to compete at the highest level. I’m hopeful that by taking a step back for awhile I can regain that fire that drives me to be one of the best.” (more…)

    In a YouTube video this week, Eagle McMahon announced that he would be getting an MRI on his injured shoulder, suspecting that he may have a torn labrum.

    McMahon’s MRI this week was the first imaging he’s had done on the shoulder that he injured days before the 2021 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship last October. He opened his season at the Las Vegas Challenge last month but avoided throwing high-power forehands due to the injury. He has skipped tour stops since LVC, citing the Texas courses’ higher forehand requirements. (more…)

  26. WATCH: Chris Dickerson Calls His Own Ace, Turns Around Before it Goes In

    Chris Dickerson and Zach Melton played a practice round in Tennessee (full video here), and on the short par 3 hole 17, Dickerson told Melton, “I’m just gonna ace right here and close the door.”

    Well, not only did he pull it off, but he pulled the ice cold Steph Curry style turnaround and starts thanking his sponsors before the disc hits the chains. This is must-watch stuff:

  28. DGN’s Live Coverage of LVC Sets New FPO Viewership High; MPO Viewership Only Behind ’21 Worlds

    Catrina Allen on DGN.

    The Disc Golf Network’s live coverage of the final round of the 2022 Las Vegas Challenge set a record for viewership of an FPO broadcast and was the second most-watched MPO event behind the 2021 World Championships final round.

    On Twitter, DGPT Media Director Mahmoud Bahrani shared the “peak concurrent” viewership numbers, which measures the maximum number of individual streams that were happening simultaneously during the event. The FPO broadcast of the final round peaked at 17,453, with two-thirds of the audience on YouTube and one-third watching on DGN. The previous most-watched FPO coverage, the 2021 Worlds final round, had 16,603 peak concurrents, according to Bahrani. (more…)

  29. Disc Golf Network Crashes for Opening LVC Broadcast; DGPT Streaming to YouTube

    UPDATE: DGN’s website and apps are now functioning normally.

    If you’re trying to tune in to the live coverage on the Disc Golf Network website or its apps, the service is currently down. The DGPT acknowledged the issue on social media. A major internet hosting provider, Heroku, is currently down, which is causing outages across the web and could be affecting DGN’s host Vimeo.

    As a result, the DGPT is streaming its opening round FPO broadcast on its YouTube channel. Watch here:
