Great tournament action is in store for the weekend ahead. Stout pro fields are expected in Rockwall, Texas for the Nick Hyde Memorial presented by Innova and Hyzerbomb. Paul McBeth will be back in action and looking to repeat as the Nick Hyde Memorial Champion.
Meanwhile the mother of all amatuer fields will roll into Kentucky for the always highly anticipated Amateur Championship at Bowling Green . Nearly 900 amateur golfers will tackle some of the finest disc golf courses in the country. Innova’s Disc Golf Across America RV will be on site all week so if you are in the area please stop by and see us.
One thing that visitors to Bowling Green tend to face is windy conditions. Like, seriously windy conditions. Some of our top models for precision shot-making in the wind include the Destroyer, Firebird, Monster, XCaliber, and Ape. Whichever one you choose, focus on a super clean release and keep your shots low and flat. Good luck in “Blowing” Green!
