Like all disc golf fans, we love Worlds, or, as it's formally called, the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships. And after the extra year without one, we went all out creating resources and tools that we hope will help disc golf lovers like us enjoy the 2021 Worlds in Utah to the fullest.
This post is where you can quickly find all of those resources.
2021 Disc Golf World Championships: The Courses
Want to learn more about the courses for this year's Worlds? We've got stats and history: Take your pick. Or, heck, why not try both?
- "The Holes Most Likely To Make Or Break Worlds Dreams" – Ogden, Utah (the site of 2021 Worlds) has hosted The Utah Open for years, and three of those tournaments have been scored with UDisc Live. We dug into the stats to see which holes at this year's worlds courses have historically created the most separation between pros.
- "Extraordinary Courses: The Fort In Ogden, Utah" – The Fort is one of two courses where Worlds competitors play in 2021. It's Utah's best course as well as one of the top 100 in the World, and it was built specifically to win Ogden a Worlds. Find out the fascinating history of the course and the impact it's had on the community surrounding it.
How Likely Is Your Favorite Player to Beat the Best?
On Monday, June 21, we released the Disc Golf World Rankings powered by UDisc. One of the coolest things about the rankings is a new tool they allowed us to create. This tool makes it so fans can compare players head to head or in small groups and see the chances each player has of beating the other(s).
While this tool can't tell you the chances of your favorite player winning the 2021 Worlds, it can tell you their chances of beating the current top players in the world.
To use this tool, just check boxes next to two players' names and then click or tap the "compare" button that pops up at the top of the division table.
Go to Disc Golf World Rankings powered by UDisc.
Note that the likelihoods shown in the comparisons do not change as the tournament progresses and only speak to the chances of players winning when their scores are tied.
If you're interested in pro stats in general, we also recommend taking a look at our piece "Disc Golf World Rankings: Fun Facts, Rivalries, & More."
