PDGA Worlds Week – What to Look For

PDGA Pro Worlds Logo 2022

This is arguably the biggest week of the year for the disc golf world. It is THE week when a World Champion will be crowned.

Now, the reality is that the PDGA Disc Golf World Championship is basically just another disc golf tournament. It’s a little bit longer than most pro events, but the only thing that matters is how an individual player plays this week. It doesn’t matter how well they’ve played the rest of the season, what matters is how they perform right now. The different between Worlds and any other tournament is the history of the event and the Title associated with the winning it.

If you don’t think there is anything different between this and other tournaments, ask Paul McBeth or Paige Pierce what they think. Even better, watch the documentaries on the Disc Golf Network.

To help you prepare for the drama of Worlds, Jace (used to be our main blog writer, now the editor at Disc Golf Reviewer) has broken down the narratives of who and what to watch among the MPO field.

MPO Players and Narratives to Watch For

Today the 2022 PDGA Disc Golf World Championship kicks off in Emporia, Kansas. Worlds is the biggest event in our sport, and after last year’s “Holy Shot” and phenomenal playoff finish, there is a tangible buzz in the air leading up to this year’s MPO event. The drama of last year’s
event and the pandemic have drawn a lot of new eyes to professional disc golf. So whether you are new to Worlds or you’ve been following since the Ken Climo days, here are some names and narratives to follow as you take in all 5 rounds of the high disc flying action this week.

Ricky Wysocki

 

Ricky Wysocki enters Worlds as one of if not the presumptive favorite to win the event and make himself a 3x World Champion. He has had an excellent 2022 season on tour with wins at Texas States, Ledgestone, and DDO, the latter was of course played on the same courses he will be navigating this week in Emporia.

There are lots of narratives to keep tabs on when watching Ricky this year. Emporia, Kansas hosted Worlds just six years ago in 2016, which is the year Ricky broke through the glass ceiling to finally win his first World Championship after finishing as runner-up in 3 of the previous 4
years. And let’s not forget whose plastic he was throwing and will be throwing now—For the 2016 season, Ricky left his long time sponsor Prodigy Disc to join Team Latitude 64 and switch his bag over to Trilogy (Latitude 64, Westside Discs, and Dynamic Discs). Dynamic Discs is headquartered in Emporia, Kansas.

After winning another World Championship with Latitude 64 in 2017, in 2019 Ricky Wysocki switched disc sponsors again and joined Team Innova, only to switch sponsors again at the beginning of this 2022 season. What team does Ricky represent now?

Dynamic Discs, meaning Ricky is back to throwing the same plastic he was throwing when he won his two previous Worlds. Oh, and perhaps you’ve heard of his rival…

Paul McBeth

Paul McBethYou can’t spell Disc Golf World Championship without Paul McBeth. While McBeth hasn’t
been as dominant in recent years (BTW, I’d take 2015 McBeth over peak Jordan or Woods any
day of the week, but especially on Sundays), he is still the biggest name in the sport, and it would
be a tragic mistake to overlook him. In every Worlds since 2012, Paul has finished as either the champion or the runner-up. He is a 5x World Champion for a reason, and I guarantee McBeast is one of if not the biggest concern for anyone who has hopes for taking home the crown this week.

Some folks might try to make a big deal about Paul’s poor performance in Emporia earlier this year at DDO where he missed the cut for the first time ever in his career, but this feels negligible to me for a player of Paul’s caliber. He also finished runner-up at Worlds in Emporia just six years ago.

Rather, the biggest narrative I’m following this week with Paul is the revenge narrative. He knows as well as the rest of the world that he was one miraculous “Holy Shot” away from taking home his sixth world title last year. The James Conrad throw in has overall been framed as a positive for the world of disc golf—it brought eyes and attention to disc golf and has been a resource to “grow the sport” as we say. But all of this growth and positivity has been at Paul’s expense, and not a day goes by that he isn’t reminded of it.

The comment he made off the cuff about losing worlds to an only backhand player when he was asked at the European Open about Eagle McMahon only throwing backhand shots due to injury shows me just how present last year’s Worlds are in McBeth’s psyche.

Will he be able to reign that emotion and energy in and perform when it’s go time? Looking at how Worlds has gone for the past decade, I think the odds are in his favor.

Live Coverage begins at on the Disc Golf Network at 2:30 PM Central Time. Post production coverage (hopefully next day) will be provided on the YouTube channels of JomezPro, GK Pro, Gatekeeper Media and Ace Run Productions.

New Disc Releases

NEW DISCS: June 26 – July 2

Here is a breakdown of some of the latest molds that were released and restocked last week:

Finish Line Era

  The Finish Line Era is the first mold from this USA-based company. Owned by Drew Gibson and sold by Infinite Discs, this company is dedicated to making quality discs. The second run of the Era was released last week, and there are still a few available, so get yourself one HERE 

The Era is designed to be the all-purpose control driver for players of all skill levels.

With a flat top and neutral flight path, the Era works well for both backhand and forehand throws. It is understable enough to work for newer players but has enough stability that it can handle the power of Drew Gibson.

Clash Discs Soda & Butter

Two new Clash discs were released last week… the Soda and the Butter. Clash Discs has surprised many with its premium plastics and excellent discs. Learn about these two new molds below, and try a SODA or BUTTER today.

The Soda is an understable fairway driver designed for distance and shot shaping, making this a great mold for players of all skill levels. Its flight allows for a large variety of throws such as hyzer-flips and anhyzer lines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Butter is a straight flying putter with a minimal fade. It features a beadless and round profile, giving you a comfortable grip. This makes for a great putter that will fly straight, hyzer, or anhyzer; shaping the shot to whatever you need it to be.

Alfa Discs Cosmic

The Cosmic is the second disc produced by the Norway based company, Alfa Discs. Alfa Discs only began in 2021, but is already making some great molds. Their first mold is a straight flying midrane, the APOLLO. They are following that up with this newest fairway mold, the COSMIC.

The Cosmic is a dependable fairway driver with high glide, providing a nice consistent flight capable of a variety of flights. It is capable of holding a variety of lines from hyzer to anhyzer, making it the highly capable mold for shot shaping, or to get controllable distance.

EV-7 Telos

 

This company focuses solely on making quality putters for the average or professional disc golfer. They had 3 molds before releasing this newest one, the TELOS. Each putter comes in a premium, grippy putter blend for maximum catch and accuracy.

The EV-7 Telos is a fantastic putter that fits right in between the Penrose and the Phi in terms of stability. This disc has the flat top like the Penrose, but the beadless bottom like the Phi. This is an excellent stability for an all purpose disc golf putter and will help you find the green and make more putts.

 

Discmania Signature C-Line P2

Making yet another appearance, the Discmania Sky God IV is on the market, featured on the Simon Lizotte Signature C-Line P2. The P2 is known for its tremendous putting accuracy, but don’t underestimate its ability to be a great approach or off the tee putter.

The P2 is a straight flying, but slightly overstable putter made by Discmania. This disc is stable enough that it can handle headwind throws and fairly long approach shots. This putter was designed specifically for pro players, but can be useful for disc golfers of all skill levels. There are many people who rely on this putter to help them eliminate strokes from their game.

Prodigy A5

The A5 is an approach disc in the famous 400 Prodigy plastic. This plastic is grippy and stiff while also being bendable to shape those perfect shots. You won’t be disappointed when purchasing one of these discs, get yourself an A5 today.

 

The A5 is a straight-to-understable approach disc for touchy approach shots that need a lot of precision under low power.

 

Thoughtspace Temple

TSA is always on brand when it comes to their stamp designs. But their discs are also on brand for being buttery and dependable. This newest mold, the Temple, comes in Nerve plastic which is a stiff, grippy plastic designed for accuracy. The TEMPLE is one of the first approach molds that TSA has released and is bound to get good reviews.

The Temple is an overstable approach designed to handle power and windy conditions. This disc works excellent as a driver and a utility disc. The Temple is a disc that you can trust to hold the line before a solid end-fade to the target.

Lone Star – 3 New Molds

Lone Star is the underdog when it comes to quality molds. Most all their discs have good reviews, and they are gaining in popularity. Last week, they released three new molds: The CHUPACABRA, the DOME, and the BULL SNAKE.

The Chupacabra is an overstable fairway driver that will work well in any condition. This features a hard fading hook at the end of the flight, providing an excellent utility mold that will always be trusted to come out of that anhyzer angle or to always fade.

 

 

 

The Dome, named after the iconic “Astrodome” is an understable fairway driver. This is a good driver for a beginner, helping them achieve greater distance than before. For more advanced players, it is a good choice for a go to understable fairway driver.

 

 

 

The Bull Snake is an overstable putt & approach mold. It exhibits a longer wing, more broad shoulder, and a microbead. This will prove itself a trustworthy mold despite weather conditions.

New Disc Golf Gear

Over these past few weeks we have been adding some new disc golf gear that you will need for your disc golf adventures. There are a good variety of new products added to our product catalog. You can check out the newest ones below. We’re always working hard to ensure that we provide all of the disc golf needs that you have.

There are some retrievers, a night round accessory, grip enhancers, and some trading cards!

Infinite Discs Holster XL

Well if you liked the original holster that we made, you’ll love this one. As this holds more discs, and has room for a mini marker. Basically, making it all that much more useful. This fits comfortably on the leg, just like the original does, but it holds 4-5 discs instead of 3-4. It also can still double as a putter pocket for your cart. Overall, this is a pretty nifty way to carry a few discs, its pretty affordable, and convenient.

The Infinite Discs Holster XL is a fun and functional disc pouch that you can strap to your waist with an adjustable belt strap and a secure leg strap to comfortably carry 4-5 discs for quick, casual disc golf rounds. You’ll be sure to turn heads as you tuck your go-to discs into the holster and strut around the fairway. It is comfortable enough to wear while you throw.

The Infinite Discs Holster XL also features a hoop on the top to work in tandem with the belt strap and leg strap to attach the pouch to backpacks. Or it can be attached to disc golf cart handles or frames to use as a spare putter pouch. Basically, you’ll have a very affordable pouch for 4-5 extra discs. Plus the XL edition features a handy pocket for your mini marker.

Whether you strap it to your body, hang it from your backpack, or affix it to your cart, you’ll have a very handy way to carry around extra discs!

Check these out here.

Option Discs Option Bag

This grip bag is a pretty cool take on a grip enhancer. I like that it is small and easy to grab, easily covering my hand in its grip enhancing powder. I additionally like that I can play hacky sack with it. I think that in so doing it makes the grippiness factor increase, as it breaks apart the pellets inside the bag allowing for more of the powder to get onto my hand. Overall, this thing is pretty great and enjoyable to have.

The Option Bag is a grip enhancement tool that is filled with a blend of chalk and ceramsite with a subtle minty scent. It is also designed as a footbag, or a Hacky Sack.

This will help you to have better grip on your discs. Or, it can keep you entertained while you’re waiting for the card in front of you to finish.

Hive Talon

This Hive Talon retriever is pretty solid. It has two hooks on it, both of which make for grabbing the disc quite easy. Not as good as a single hook to poke it out of a tree though. It extends a good length, and it is reliable.

The Hive Disc Talon Retriever a versatile took for disc retrieval. With its twin-hook talon and a telescoping pole, this retriever makes getting hard to reach discs easy. Whether your disc is in the water, stuck in a tree, or trapped in a thorny thicket, the Hive Disc Talon Retriever is up to the task. With a Talon Retriever in-hand you’ll spend less time and effort saving your discs and more time playing!

Learn more about it here.

Pro Tour Trading Cards

I’ve been waiting for someone to do this for a while now. Trading cards are cool and fun to collect. It is also a fun little thing to purchase and be surprised by who you got within the packet.

These are 12-card packs of the Disc Golf Pro Tour (DGPT) 2022 trading cards for collectors and fans. There are 123 cards including many pros, all stars, champions, and more. Collect them all by purchasing random card packs and trading with your friends.

Check them out here.

MVP 100 LED Blacklight

I am impressed with how well this thing works. It is kind of bulky, but man, does it charge my glow discs well. Its large surface area works in its benefit to provide a lot of UV light to the disc. Proving to charge more of the disc in the same amount of time as other, smaller, UV lights. Overall, this is a pretty cool UV light.

This is a powerful UV flashlight from MVP. It has an extra large 100 LED lights, designed to charge your glow discs. It charges glow plastic in record time, allowing you to spend more time focusing on playing the night round. Powered by 6 AA batteries (which are included). This is encased in a sturdy a metal casing, to help it last.

Learn more here.

DiscreetTriever Driver Diver Disc Golf Retriever

This retriever is a surprisingly useful tool. It is quite useful, and super light! I’ve found that it works very nicely with all sorts of sticks. I am a little nervous about hitting it hard against something, as I know some 3D printed plastics aren’t the strongest. But this one does seem pretty strong. It grabs the rim of the disc pretty securely, I like it a lot. Also, I love the fact that this doesn’t take up that much room, it just clips onto one of my towel D-rings. It is pretty great.

The Driver Diver (Patent Pending) is a new disc golf retriever. This is a little different than other retrievers as it is merely the retriever head. You will use the reusable zip ties to attach it to any stick that you find around. Then when you are done, you can detach it from the stick and clip it back onto you bag. Eliminating the bulkiness of a large retriever stick.

The Driver Diver has many benefits. As it can attach to most any stick around. Additionally, it has a low profile and is extremely light. Making this an easily portable retriever that doesn’t take up much space. The low-cost and low profile make this a great retriever.

Check it out here.

Conclusion

Thank you for your loyalty, keep throwing what you love!

New Disc Golf Disc Releases – Prodigy Falcor & Reverb

Another week, and some more time to enjoy life. With this week there are some new disc molds that are coming out this week. Not as many as there have been in the past, but

This Week Releases

Prodigy Falcor

The Prodigy Falcor will be available for purchase on Thursday, March 10, 2022.  The Falcor seems to feel a bit wider than a Destroyer. This disc is quite stable, I find that it does push a little more than I would have anticipated. Even with this nice glide, this disc is still rather quite overstable. Probably a little too much for me though, I don’t have that strong of an arm though.

The Falcor is the first disc in the Cale Leiviska line of discs. This is an overstable distance driver that provides a large amount of glide. Higher speed arms will achieve max distance out of this disc.

Prodigy Reverb

The Prodigy Reverb, feels good in the hand. This disc is a wide rimmed distance driver. Even though it is a 13 speed driver, this is still fairly comfortable to my grip. It is surprising that this is comfortable to me. This thing is quite beefy for me, it flies very straight and then fades hard. I can easily see this thing withstanding a lot of windy conditions. It definitely makes for a great utility disc, for me that is, I don’t have the strongest of arms. Come tomorrow, you’ll be able to get this for yourself tomorrow.

The Reverb is the first disc of of the Kevin Jones line of discs. This is an overstable distance driver with a little more fade at the end. This handles power, deflects wind, and works as a utility driver. The Reverb will hold a line for the majority of the time before the fade kicks in.

Be sure to check these molds out, as well as all of your other disc golf needs at Infinite Discs. Have a good one!

Team Infinite Player Spotlight: Taylor Aubuchon

When I started my journey down the rabbit hole of learning about disc golf and buying discs about 2 years ago, Taylor Aubuchon was the first reviewer I came across. I appreciated Taylor’s succinct reviews that had no extra fluff in them: 60-second reviews, a couple throws from different release angles, flight trackers, and good descriptions of the feel and flight of a specific disc.



The more knowledge I gain, or think I gain, I still find myself looking forward to and immediately clicking on any new videos from Taylor. Taylor can pack just the right amount of information into a short and easily digestible video. Most of Taylor’s videos also end with a discount code to be used at infinitediscs.com

I reached out for a brief interview to better introduce Taylor to other Infinite followers that may not be aware of his content, social media presence, and mission to grow the game.

 

What is your disc golf origin story?

In late middle school/early high school (2007/2008), my group of friends and I were introduced to the game through our church’s youth group. I also took my dad and brother out to play and we were all hooked instantly. We were really lucky to have a great course just a few minutes away and started to play relatively seriously early on. Our youth group started a weekly bag tag series, and I even started to run a small doubles charity tournament within that first year.

How long have you been working with Infinite Discs?

Fortunately for me, Infinite started to support me after just my first review video, which was in March 2019. I’ll never be able to thank Dylan enough for believing in the plan I had for a different take on review videos! It’s pretty crazy to see how far I’ve come and how much it’s grown since then.

When did you start posting disc golf videos?

I started posting in March 2019, right when the first run I-Blend Emperors came out. This was a disc I was really excited about and thought it needed some more light shed on it. It was a mediocre video, to say the least, but it got some great feedback and I’ve been trying to improve and refine my style ever since.

How did you develop your signature and succinct review style?

I think as most content creators develop their style it starts out being mostly self-serving. After taking an extended hiatus from the game, my brother introduced me to the Infinite brand. I was hard-pressed to find any reviews or really any content focused on their lineup. Most YouTube reviews I was watching seemed quite long for their purpose, and I couldn’t find any review content on Instagram at the time. I saw an opportunity to create a more concise format that would be able to be pushed to the more underutilized avenues of social media. The original plan was actually to only post them to Instagram. I only created a YouTube channel to be able to share the reviews in Infinite’s comment section.

What disc surprised you the most after reviewing it? (You weren’t expecting to like, flew differently than expected, etc)

Definitely the Aztec. I had never really thrown that kind of straight control driver that still had good distance potential. When the I-Blend test run came out I loved the feel and flight it had, but it beat in just a little too quickly to be super reliable. Thankfully, the color glow run came out shortly after and I’ve had at least two in my bag ever since. The Aztec gives me the control of the Exodus, while not sacrificing much of the extra distance I’d get from bumping up to an Emperor of Pharaoh. If they’re ever looking for a name to put on the color glow Aztec, I know a guy that’d be pretty interested.

What is your favorite Infinite disc?

The Tomb without a doubt. I power grip everything but putts, so the Tomb is a perfect throwing putter for me with its shallow rim. Right now I’m bagging a Splatter S-Blend for overstable, C-Blend for stable, and D-Blend for understable throwing putter slots.

Check out Taylor’s Tomb review here:

Infinite Discs D-Blend Tomb Review

What is your favorite non-infinite disc?

I’ve had a full infinite bag for a bit over a year now, but the hardest disc for me to take out was the Westside Discs Pine. I enjoy a taller, more overstable feeling Midrange that beat into straight fliers. Taking the time to beat a disc into that perfect spot gives you a level of confidence and trust in it that can’t easily be replaced.

Who is your player on tour?

I always look forward to watching Drew Gibson shred out there. Best backhand form on tour!

Do you compete in tournaments? Discuss some local events, results, experiences, etc.

Unfortunately, it’s been a couple of years since I’ve played a local event, but I’m hoping to get back out there soon! 

What are some of your disc golf goals?

Since really diving into content creation, most of my goals center around growing my presence to be able to share these awesome discs with as many people as possible! It’d be awesome to hit 1000 YouTube subscribers someday, but I try not to focus too hard on any specific avenue as there are so many outlets to push to. As far as disc golf specific, I’m always tweaking something in my game. Right now the goal is to develop a more consistent forehand, there’s a reason you’ve never seen me throw a forehand in any video…

What are some of your hobbies outside of and other than disc golf?

Before disc golf, my biggest passions were music and video games. I played in local bands throughout high school and dove pretty deep into music production afterward. I’ve also streamed via Twitch off and on since around 2015. Although music has taken a bit of a back seat recently, I still stream regularly at twitch.tv/ursapls and would love to talk disc golf, gaming, or music with anyone that wants to stop by!

We will be continuing this series, spotlighting members of Team Infinite from all 4 levels: Signature, Elite, Ambassador, and Core Teams. Please share this article and comment below which player(s) that you would like to hear from!

 

Get outside and throw some discs. Have an awesome day!
