The Underdog, Nathan Queen

“It really feels like the Nathan Queen City today,” said the newly-crowned Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship victor on Sunday.

After each day of competition at the Tour Championship, there was a fair amount of chatter about Nathan Queen’s chances moving forward. The lefty’s play was stellar from the start, but questions about it holding up against tougher and tougher fields persisted. Well, over the course of the weekend, the 1026-rated pro put those doubts to rest, beating a field of the best of the best to take down the DGPT Championship and the record-setting $30,ooo top prize.

“It hasn’t been the year that I expected for myself as far as cashing at events,” said Queen. Queen went full-time on the road in 2019 after a breakout USDGC in 2018 where he finished 11th and was featured on the lead card during the event. “I took a leap and got a truck and trailer before this event to travel in next year. Paid off now.”

The $30K first place payout is $11,000 more than Queen had earned in tournament prizes for 2021 leading into the weekend.
