ABOUT WILL SCHUSTERICK

 

Will Schusterick began playing Disc Golf at the age of thirteen in Knoxville, Tennessee. Like many kids, he grew bored with the traditional team sports, including those he excelled at (primarily Baseball and Basketball), so he began looking for a competitive sport that offered a way for him to push himself without being locked into the scheduling demands of these sports. After playing his first round of Disc Golf in late 2005, Will started playing three to four rounds a day with his dad and best friend at Victor Ashe Park. Will dove deep into Disc Golf as both a player and a student of the game, and daily practice helped Will become one of the top Amateur competitors in the world in very short time. In 2007 Will won the Advanced Division at “The Memorial” In Scottsdale, Arizona, and later that year, at the age of fifteen, he became the youngest player ever to compete in a US Open.

Between 2010 and 2012 Will racked up several impressive wins at several of the largest National Tour tournaments including The Stockholm Open (Sweden), which is another Major PDGA tournament. When the US Disc Golf Championships rolled back around in 2012, Will was now well established among the top forces in the game, and he proved it once again by pulling off a dramatic come-from-behind victory to take home his second US Open title. In early 2013 Will found a new way to exhibit his unsurpassed passion and vision of the game by helping fund and found a new forward-leaning Disc Golf brand, Prodigy Disc. While his deep dive into the business of growing the sport took a slight toll on his game (it’s hard to practice every day when you’re helping to launch a major corporation), Will still continued as a top competitor at every National Tour and Major tournament he attended. Will also began traveling around the world specifically to teach his unique approach to DISC GOLF INSTRUCTION to any group of disc golfers who were eager to maximize their skills and play the game the right way. When Will would host a Disc Golf Instruction series, the turnout would be enormous, and all who attended recognized that his techniques were so simple and so easy to adapt that their distance, accuracy, and overall play immediately improved.

Despite Will’s instruction series and the launch of Prodigy Disc superseding so much of his personal practice, when the time the 2013 US Open rolled around, Will was determined to make a strong run at his third crown. The final round came down to a tie with just two holes remaining, but after shocking blow-up on hole seventeen, Will finished a respectable but very disappointing eighth in the tournament. With the taste of bitter defeat in his favorite tournament driving him to an even greater level of focus, Will knew he had to jump back on the training regimen that brought him such prodigious success through his teen years. While still growing the Prodigy brand, teaching Disc Golf, and traveling around the world to compete in all the major events, it became evident that Will was determined to map out a life that would promote Disc Golf in every way possible; whether by being a pioneer and ambassador to the game or by competing at the highest level. In his year of resurgence as a competitor, Will decorated 2014 with several big wins, and once again his season crescendoed at the year-end US Open Championships. Headed into the final round, Will was trailed some of the biggest names in the world, and once the final scores were tallied up, he headed into a three-way playoff with Paul McBeth and John E. Mccray. On just the second playoff hole, Will once again claimed victory, taking home his third United States Disc Golf Championship crown. With Disc Golf growing at an astounding rate over the past several years, Will has proven incredible success in teaching players at every level, including beginners, experienced players, and even potential pro players hoping to follow in his footsteps. Over the three years following his third US Open crown, Will began detailing and documenting the secrets to how he became the youngest United States Champion and #1 ranked player in the world within just five years of picking up his first disc. From this process, the DISC GOLF INSTRUCTION teaching system and video series was born.
