The 2024 Beaver State Fling returns to the elite stage and promises a thrilling competition on the newly modified Riverbend Gold course at Milo McIver State Park. This year marks its return as a DGPT Elite Series event, heightening the stakes for the participating FPO athletes.

Key Storylines to Watch:

  • Ohn Scoggins’ Consistency: Scoggins has 19 top 10 finishes in her last 20 Major/Elite Series starts and is now poised to challenge for the top spot.
  • Notable Absences: The absence of past champions Catrina Allen and Paige Pierce opens the field for new contenders to emerge.
  • Valerie Mandujano’s Return: The 2022 BSF champion is back, looking to reclaim her title.

With its storied history and a layout that challenges even the best, the Beaver State Fling is a must-watch for disc golf enthusiasts. The MPO field is stacked with top-tier talent and some compelling storylines. Here’s some of what you should look for as some of the best MPO players in the game vie for victory.

Key Storylines to Watch:

  • Gannon Buhr’s Hot Streak: Fresh off a commanding win at the Portland Open, Buhr leads the DGPT standings with two DGpT+ wins this season and aims for another victory.
  • Eagle McMahon’s Dominance: Defending champion McMahon has won the last three BSFs he’s competed in and is looking to continue his success in Oregon. After an abbreviated start to the season and switching to a new sponsor, we will be watching to see if Eagle can find some Magic at Milo again.
  • Return of Legends: Both Ricky Wysocki and Paul McBeth have four BSF wins between them, and showed strong form with top 10 finishes at the Portland Open.
  • Nate Doss’ Comeback: The 2007 BSF champion returns to PDGA competition for the first time since 2018, adding an exciting dynamic to the field.
