2018 Discraft Ledgestone Insurance Open draws competitors

 Professional disc golfer Paul McBeth of Huntington Beach, CA, putts from the woods on hole 4 at the 2018 Discraft Ledgestone Insurance Open on August 12 at Eureka Lake.  Nearly a thousand disc golfers, from amateurs to professionals, played in the tournament last weekend, competing on courses in Eureka, Morton, Pekin, Peoria and Washington. McBeth, the number one ranked professional disc golfer in the world, finished tied for 13th on the weekend. Next summer, there will be even more professional disc golf in central Illinois as the Peoria area will host the 2019 Professional Disc Golf World Championships in addition to the successful Ledgestone Open.
