I think these silhouettes sum up the beauty of our sport. My body has definitely been in each and every one of these positions at some point during the multitude of rounds I have played throughout the course of my life. Disc Golf is life!

On the woman's side Paige Bjerkass wins her first world title. It is really interesting to see all of the new talent coming up in the ranks of both the men and the women. 2018 marks the crowning of two new, first time champions, something that is great for the sport. I love Disc Golf!

The McBeast gets a full segment on ESPN Sports Center, complete with Shakespeare quotes from the play McBeth. An unbelievable performance and perhaps the greatest round ever played? You decide.

Just not the one he really wanted. Luka Modric won the Golden Ball at the 2018 World Cup as Croatia succumbed to an excellent French team 4-2 in the final.
It was a good game, although not without controversy after some dubious calls by the referee. That's futbol though and in the end France's talent shone through to show that they were indeed worthy of being in the finals and winning the title.
The captain of the gritty Croatian team, which captured the world's hearts and minds, took home the award of the best player at the 2018 World Cup, and deservedly so in my view. It was a great tournament and for a small nation, being second on the world stage is no small thing. Congratulations to all the teams that qualified and congratulations to France and Croatia for being number 1 and 2 in the world respectively. Also, my pick to take the whole thing (Belgium) came in third, their best showing ever on the World Cup stage. Congratulations to them as well. It was a great month of viewing for futbol fans all around the world. Now we have to wait another four years. Darn!

Well, now that my pick, Belgium, is out and will be playing England in the third place game it is time to change allegiances. I am wholeheartedly rooting for Croatia, a tiny nation in their first ever world cup final. Who better deserves to hoist the trophy than Luka Modric, the 32 year old diminutive midfielder and captain who has the heart of a lion and the legs of a Tour de France cyclist.
What a journey for this team to make it this far. Three extra time victories in the knockout stage. Unheard of. Although they will be facing a rested French team and they will have very tired legs my heart will be with them and every single Croatian fan. Go Croatia, the underdogs and darlings of the tournament!

My pick to take it all is still alive in the tournament. They face the mighty France tomorrow at 2:00 pm Eastern time. Now it gets really tough and it's anyone's tournament to win or lose with only four teams left. The good news is that they are only one win away from going to the final. We will see!

Wow! What a game versus Japan. The Japanese played a fantastic game and the Belgians responded just in the nick of time. This game may have been the best thing that could have happened to Belgium so far.
Martinez made the right calls with his substitutions and this trap game may have been just what the doctor ordered before the herculean task of meeting Brazil this Friday arises. It's win or go home again and the stakes just keep getting higher. I can't wait.

Well, so far so good for my pick. They won their group (even beating England) so I like their chances of getting to the quarters by beating a less talented Japanese side. The bad news is when they do, they will have to face the mighty Brazil, unless the earth stops rotating around the sun and somehow the Mexican side beats Brazil. That outcome is very unlikely, but would change the panorama substantially in Belgium's favor. What a great tournament so far!

It's that time. Once every four years the greatest party in the world arrives and it starts soon. So, it's time for predictions. Who will win? I am going to make a controversial pick just to get the party started. My pick is Belgium. You heard it here first.

From the Gold Standard of Disc Golf coverage comes the best of 2017 in Disc Golf. 2017 was a banner year for the sport and one of the biggest reasons was the guys at Jomez Productions. Their coverage was insanely good and they were at every single event that mattered. Their post production is the best in the business and it is important that we recognize them for their efforts. A huge thank you to the team at Jomez Productions! Now enjoy the shots in Part Two.
