The 2024 Dynamic Discs Open is the 8th stop on the DGPT calendar held in Emporia, KS. Eric McCabe and best friend Gabe Werly started the Glass Blown Open with big dreams in 2003. The event’s first year was a PDGA B-Tier with 88 competitors. World-renowned artist Hal Berger designed the original glass trophies, which added tremendous value and prestige to the young event. In 2006, Hal passed away at 54 in his sleep and passed the art of blowing the glass trophies to Brice Turnbull, who studied under Berger.

Now, the excitement for the event has surpassed the hopes and dreams of McCabe and Werly. The Glass Blown Open became the largest disc golf event in the world! In 2020, they made a change. While Emporia is widely known for glass blowing, it’s even more known for disc golf. Because of this, we announced the Glass Blown Open would be known as the Dynamic Discs Open moving forward. After hosting Dynamic Discs as a DGPT event in 2022, Dynamic Discs decided to split the professional and amateur sides of the event. Now, the Dynamic Discs Open will be known as an event for MPO and FPO only.

This year, a grand total of 150 players, encompassing both MPO and FPO divisions, competed for a total purse of $75,501. Congratulations to your MPO Champion Calvin Heimburg and FPO Champion Missy Gannon! Read more about this year’s edition of the Dynamic Discs Open.
