The most prestigious Disc Golf team event of the year is presented by Innova Champion Discs:
Seppo Paju joins Team Europe
So there you have them: the final rosters of the teams for Presidents Cup. Quite expectedly, Jussi Meresmaa decided not to take part as a player, since he is the Tournament Director of the Presidents Cup. Jussi’s spot went to a very promising young discgolfer, Seppo Paju, who earned the titles of World Champion in boys under 16 and European Champion in boys under 19 -divisions last year.
With wins from all the previous cups, Team USA is considered once again a favorite in this year’s Presidents Cup. Europe captain Hans Tegebäck is still confident that team Europe has a good shot at obtaining a surprise victory at home soil.
