MVP Open to Host Disc Golf’s Richest Ace Contest
16 of the best disc golfers in the world will attempt to make a million-dollar shot
September 19th, 2022: Come watch eight men and eight women take a shot at winning one million dollars. Taking place at the Disc Golf Pro Tour’s MVP Open, the most accurate distance throwers in the world will throw three shots each at a basket that is placed on the hole 1 fairway. Make it in and win a million.
- 6:00 PM, Thursday, 9/22: Eight men, 600 feet, three throws each, Maple Hill hole 1
- 6:00 PM, Friday, 9/23: Eight women, 450 feet, three throws each, Maple Hill hole 1
Players that will be chosen to throw for the million dollars must be qualified for the MVP Open and will be determined via a fan vote and the Precise Power Index (PPI), a soon-to-be-released statistic generated by UDisc, the industry leader in disc golf statistics. The top six men and women in the PPI will join the two men and women that get in via the fan vote.
How to watch. The event is free to all day-of MVP Open ticket holders. Media are encouraged to attend and must get a Media Pass prior to the event. Please apply online with the DGPT to secure a Media Pass. The Million Dollar Shot will be broadcast live on Disc Golf Network (DGN) immediately after the Thursday and Friday live broadcasts of the MVP Open and recorded for post production by Gatekeeper Media.

There will be over a thousand people watching the throws in person as well as tens of thousands watching online. The venue, insurance, partner support, statistics, coverage and the tournament all came together to make this event possible.
Presenting partner East Coast Metal Roofing’s owner Paul Lechiara said, “I was excited when I received a call from Steve [Dodge] about the Million Dollar Shot. East Coast Metal Roofing has helped to grow the sport here in New England by donating to various causes and courses. What better way to grow the sport than to give a pro a Million Dollars!!!
