European Disc Golf Championship: Sweden’s Berg, Finland’s Salonen Take Early Leads

EDGC returns after 2020 cancellation

After having to cancel the 2020 edition of the European Disc Golf Championship cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, the EDGC returns this week to the grounds of the Konopiště Castle in the Czech Republic.

Both the Open and Open Women’s divisions are playing the Franz Ferdinand course on the castle ground, a temporary layout also used for the 2018 Konopiště Open PDGA Major, won by Eagle McMahon and Eveliina Salonen.

The four round tournament started Wednesday, and video coverage can be found at SpinTV (MPO) and More Disc Golf (FPO).

FPO – Round 1

Kristin Tattar (Estonia), Henna Blomroos (Finland), and Salonen (Finland) are all playing the event, and barring an upset, will be your podium in some order. After 18 holes, Salonen leads at 4-under par, with Blomroos at 3-under, and Tattar at 2-under.
