The European Open Experience

EO2013 features the best disc golf ever seen in Europe. Top players from all over the world gather to Nokia to compete for the EO Champion title in Open and Women’s Open divisions.
The event began today with the President's Cup where the best of USA and Europe battle it out in match play. This year was closer than ever before with the entire outcome resting on a single hole.

“With only 2 matches remaining to decide the competition, team USA had 24 ½ points to 21 ½ points for team Europe. Murmurs could be heard in the crowd of spectators when word came that Henrik Johansen had just defeated Will Schusterick 2 and 1 on the next to the last hole to put team Europe into a tie with Team USA at 24 ½ points with only 1 match left to be decided. The atmosphere was electric as current world champion Paul McBeth of team USA and current European Champion Simon Lizotte of team Europe, perhaps the two best disc golfers on each side of the Atlantic, came to the challenging and dangerous par 4 last hole all square.”
