The 2022 Professional Disc Golf World Championships start tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30th, in Emporia, Kansas! The top players from across the world will be competing for the most coveted title in our sport. The unique pressure of this Major tournament will crack some athletes and fuel others. With five rounds split between two long, OB-laden courses, it will take both physical and mental endurance to come out on top. Team Innova is already having a stellar season and our players are fired up to take the 2022 Professional Disc Golf World Championships by storm.
A History of Success
Innova has always had an unrivaled history of success at PDGA World Championships. 40 years ago this August, Innova cofounder Harold Duvall won the first ever Disc Golf World Championship in Los Angeles, California.

With 36 top Innova athletes competing this year from across our teams, our players have a great opportunity to add their name to the long, yet prestigious list of Team Innova World Champions.
So far, Innova has been having an incredible season. We have had 17 podium finishes in MPO and 17 in FPO at Pro Tour events this year. Six of those podiums were wins. Out of three Majors so far this season, Team Innova has had six podium finishes including one victory, Hailey King’s win at the USWDGC.
The team is already seeing success in Emporia. This past weekend at the Mixed Doubles World Championships, Calvin Heimburg and partner Macie Valadiez took down the win. Team Innova’s Stacie Rawnsley with partner Aaron Gossage tied for second place with the team of Jen Allen and Drew Gibson. Though the mixed doubles event is as much for fun as it is a competition, a sweep of the podium can only be a good sign for Innova as we get into the most important event of the season.

The courses at the 2022 Professional Disc Golf World Championships will benefit accurate players with a big arm. The Emporia Country Club and the Supreme 18 at Jones Park are both long and open with punishing out-of-bounds. The player who can handle the wind and avoid OB strokes will take down this event. Constant risk-reward decisions, iconic island greens, changing elevation, varied shot shapes, and the potential for wind will ensure entertaining rounds on these Emporia courses.
Scores could vary wildly depending on conditions. At…
