The top disc golfers were back in action with the start of All-Star Weekend on Saturday. The top 8 men and women in the world battled in a doubles format on a safari course at Fountain Hills Disc Golf. The first nine holes used a “best shot” format, while the second loop used a “tough shot” format.

During the first nine holes, the best shot format allowed the competitors opportunities to be more aggressive and allowed for some highlight-reel shots.

There was little separation to be had between the teams after the first loop of nine holes. The second loop offered less scoring opportunities and rewarded consistent play.

On the women’s side, Catrina Allen and Kona Panis led the way with solid play that gave them the commanding lead, finishing 5-under on the day.
