UPDATE: Ricky Wysocki has withdrawn from All-Star weekend due to a wrist injury. 

Gannon Buhr will take over as captain for Team Ricky, but the team name will remain the same on UDisc and Disc Golf Network throughout the weekend.

Corey Ellis will be filling in for Wysocki and will take his place for Friday’s skills and Saturday’s doubles competition. Ellis will also become the new #6 seed for Team Ricky in Sunday’s singles competition and will face off against Kevin Jones. All other players on Team Ricky will now be bumped up one spot in the singles seeding, with Gannon Buhr representing the #1 seed against Paul McBeth.

 

 

 

 

The Third Annual Disc Golf Pro Tour All-Star Weekend kicks off soon! The 2023 All-Star event is set to take place February 17-19, 2023 at the Pusch Ridge Temp course set up at El Conquistador Resort in Tucson, Arizona. Like last year, the DGPT is taking a team approach following a modified Ryder Cup format where each division will be split into two teams. Each team will have a total of 6 players (including captains), and the team captains responsible for picking their teams will be the #1 and #2 seeds at the event.

Team captains will draft players for their teams via snake draft and then immediately must determine where in the skills competition they will be placed. Therefore, players will be selected based on who the captains want to assign to each specific Skills Competition: Putting, Accuracy/Shot-shaping, and Controlled Distance. In addition to the skills competitions, we will also have doubles and singles matches.

The 2023 All-Star Draft starts on Friday evening (February 10, 2023) and you can watch it LIVE on the Disc Golf Network or on our YouTube Channel. The FPO All-Star Draft starts at 6pm ET and you can watch as Catrina Allen and Ohn Scoggins draft their teams on the Disc Golf Network or on the DGPT YouTube Channel at this link here. The MPO All-Star Draft will begin shortly after at 7pm ET. Find out who Ricky Wysocki and Paul McBeth will draft for All-Star Weekend on the Disc Golf Network or on our YouTube Channel here.

All matches will be won and lost by total score, not via match play. So, players will complete all holes in a round. Teams will compete against each other all weekend across skills comps, singles, and doubles. Each of these portions of the competition will earn points towards each team. At the end of the weekend, the team with the most points will win the weekend.

Going into Saturday the team captains will select three doubles teams each for head-to-head competition based on combined seeding. Pairs are seeded by the lowest seed after both the player’s individual seeds are combined (for example, Seed 1 & Seed 4 = 5 (if this is the lowest total number, that team serves as a #1 seed for doubles). Doubles pairs play the pair on the opposing team with the corresponding seed (Seeds 1 v 1, Seeds 2 v 2, Seeds 3 v 3). Doubles teams play best disc, stroke play, lowest total score wins. The winner of each match will gain an additional point for their team. Stay tuned for the release of the pairings on Saturday morning!
