The 2010s saw exponential growth for both disc golf and the PDGA. We’re looking back on a phenomenal 10 years in our Decade on Display series, where we reflect and reminisce about the sport’s successes both on and off the course. Keep an eye out for more through the end of 2019.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – The famed Beach Boardwalk and its landmark Giant Dipper make for a bucolic skyline here in this seaside enclave, but for yesterday afternoon’s final round of the Masters Cup it was as if Ricky Wysocki and Josh Anthon picked up the red and white wooden roller coaster and transplanted it to the fairways of the DeLaveaga Golf Course.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – Faced with a 40-foot death putt for birdie on DeLaveaga’s 8a Saturday, Josh Anthon had two choices: Run it, or play it safe. One of those options was never, realistically, in play.
