Two players escaped the opening round of voting to earn their place in the 2021 Roller of the Year finals, and no other shot received enough write-ins to make the cut. Time to cast that ballot for the best roller of the 2021 pro season.
Eagle McMahon, who had a handful of entries in the opening round, did earn his place in the finals with a drive and approach combo on hole 18 at the Portland Open receiving a vote on 24.6% of ballots. McMahon’s roller(s) finished second in the voting, however, to Matt Orum’s recovery roller at the Preserve Championship which received 27.7% of the vote. McMahon’s roller at the Dynamic Discs Open was the last shot to miss the final cut.
