Discology heading off to the PDGA Worlds in North Carolina

Discology owner, Richard Sampson, will be competing at the 2012 PDGA World Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 14-21 July.

Over 1000 pro and amateur players are expected for this week long competition, being played over 14 courses.

“To say I’m excited would be a bit of an under statement” said Richard.

“This is my first World Championships and also the first time I’ve been back to the USA since I first played disc golf at Pease Park in Austin, Texas in 1995.

I’ll be competing with my great mate and fellow Tasmanian, Harvey Yarnall. It’s gonna be a wild ten days and I can’t wait.

I’ll be playing in the Open division and will tackle three courses:

Richard Sampson

Renaissance – Moderately hilly, long, technical pro-level course with some heavily wooded holes and a few open holes. A monster with OB, mandos, ravines, creeks and diabolical pin placements. 7,282’(61)/9,407’(70)


Nevin – Tightly wooded, long, technical pro-level course with some elevation changes. Nicknamed The Nightmare, for good reason. 7,214’(63)/8,397’(68)


Bradford – Moderately hilly, moderately wooded pro-level course. Water in play on five holes. Minimal OB. 5,590’(55)/6,810’(58)
