The USDGC is our favorite event! Here is our list of contenders along with some BOLD predictions!
Will Schusterick – Schusterick has won the USDGC 3x and comes in as the reigning champion.
Paul McBeth – Is there anything else to say but #McBeast?
Simon Lizotte– Lizotte has a ton of confidence after his NT win over McBeth at the 2015 Ledgestone Insurance Open. Can he carry that confidence into the USDGC?
Ricky Wysocki – Wysocki is always a contender and we suspect he will be this year.
Nate Doss – Another former winner who knows what it takes to be the US Champion.
Nikko Locastro – See Nate Doss. Can he keep is mental game in check?
Johne McCray – We think he will be out for redemption after last years drama.
BOLD Predictions: (Updated 10/10/15 after USDGC Completion)
Nikko Locastro will have an ACE at some point in the tournament.
Well, an ACE is hard to predict. We missed this one.
Nate Sexton will find the lead card after Round One.
We correctly predicted this result. Sexton was in 2nd place after the 1st round.
Paul McBeth will find himself at least 7 strokes back during the tournament.
McBeth got as far back as 6 strokes. Close but not quite.
The winner will have a 3 stroke margin.
McBeth won by 5 strokes over 2nd place, Ricky Wysocki.
Gregg Barsby will not be in contention as he has been almost all season.
Barsby had a miserable first round and withdrew from the tournament due to issues with his elbow. We got this one right.
Paige Pierce will repeat as Performance Flight Champion!
We did not realize Paige would not defend her Performance Flight Championship, so we got this one wrong.
What do you think will happen! Stay tuned for USDGC week and all of the coverage available at Average Disc Golf!
