Get ready for the much-anticipated 2024 DGPT All-Star Weekend, as the Disc Golf Pro Tour gears up for its ninth season prepare to watch the top disc golf talents in the world throw down in Florida for the season kick-off. Mark your calendars for February 16-18, 2024, as our esteemed All-Star players converge upon Olympus Disc Golf Course in Brooksville, Florida. It promises to be a thrilling showcase of skill and competition you won’t want to miss!

Following the path set by previous All-Star events, the DGPT is reintroducing a team-centric format, inspired by the PGA Tour’s Ryder Cup. Each division (FPO and MPO) will be split into two teams with captains, determined by the 2023 end-of-season DGPT Points Standings, strategically drafting a squad of 6 from a roster of qualified All-Stars. These teams will compete in doubles on Saturday, and singles on Sunday accumulating points to determine the ultimate winner. 

Meet Your 2024 All-Star Teams:

In the FPO division, Ohn Scoggins and Missy Gannon step into the spotlight as All-Star Team Captains, while on the MPO side, the leadership reins are in the capable hands of Calvin Heimburg and Isaac Robinson. With the dust settling on the 2024 All-Star Draft, the stage is set for this year’s teams. If you happened to miss the draft-day excitement, fear not! You can catch all the riveting FPO Draft and MPO Draft action on our YouTube channel.

Skills Challenge Update (Friday, February 16th):

The much-anticipated skills challenge, a longstanding tradition at the All-Star Weekend, is making a return in 2024 with a fresh twist. This year, rather than factoring into the overall All-Star team points, the putting, distance, and accuracy contests will take center stage as a distinct individual exhibition event. To add an extra layer of excitement, a select group of additional touring players will join the All-Stars and to showcase their prowess in these challenges. This slightly expanded field will vie for individual honors in each category, setting the stage for an exhilarating weekend. 

The skills challenge includes a putting challenge, featuring a total of six stations, followed by an accuracy challenge that showcases five distinct throw types to test players’ shot-shaping prowess. And let’s not forget the heart-pounding controlled distance challenge, where participants will push their distance limits with six throws each. The Skills Challenge kicks off at 1 PM ET and you can catch all the action LIVE on our YouTube channel or on the Disc Golf Network!

The doubles teams will engage in a best disc, stroke play format, where the goal is to achieve the lowest total score for victory. Each winning match will secure one point for the winning pair’s All-Star team. The FPO Doubles rounds kick off at 8:30 AM ET and the MPO Doubles rounds start soon after at 2:00 PM ET, you can catch all the action LIVE on the Disc Golf Network!
