    Charlie Eisenhood and Josh Mansfield tease their upcoming disc review series, Bag or Bust, before launching into a discussion of the June ratings updates, including Kristin Tattar becoming the top rated FPO player, Gannon Buhr, Simon Lizotte, and more. Then they break down everything about the Match Play Championship, including what happens with Calvin Heimburg dropping out, the new format, a Match Play over/under, and their picks for the weekend.

    Note that this episode was recorded on Tuesday, before the final player lineup was announced, so the final pools are different than the information available to Charlie & Josh.

Highest Quality DG Poscast

I’ve been listening to several disc golf podcasts for 2+ years, and I can’t recommend the Up Shot highly enough. Charlie and Josh are prepared for every episode, communicate clearly, and have a natural synergy that every other podcast should envy. There is no better source for both information and opinion regarding disc golf at its highest level.

Good until…

While I appreciate the effort they put in and the stimulating discussion they bring up, they’ve lost me. Between bashing the 22’ DDO courses (and basically saying the Midwest shouldn’t be allowed to host pro tours (due to lack of trees…)) and saying that local pro shouldn’t be allowed to play pro tours events (everyone starts as a local pro). I’m good for a while until someone says they change their tune.
