Estonia's Kristin Tattar becomes world disc golf champion
Estonian disc golfer Kristin Tattar became world champion for the first time, finishing with a stunning 38 under par after five rounds at the PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) World Championships in Emporia, Kansas, USA.
The Estonian's final total of 305 shots was eight ahead of Finland's Henna Blomros, who finished on 313 shots (-30), with Holyn Handley of the USA in third with -25 (318 shots).
The win was Tattar's first victory at a world championship, improving on her fifth place finish in last year's tournament in Ogden, Utah, and sixth at the 2019 competition in Peoria, Illinois. The Estonian also took silver at the 2019 European Championships in Nokia, Finland, and bronze at the 2018 Euros in Sveti Martin na Muri, Croatia.
"It feels amazing. It doesn't feel real. Can somebody wake me up from this dream?" Tattar said afterwards.
"I feel like disc golf is my thing. It came into my life in a perfect moment in every aspect of my life. I feel like I'm doing the right thing. It's unreal, honestly. I still can't wrap my head around it, that I'm here and I won the world championships. There are previous world champions congratulating me. It's crazy—I don't know how it happened," said Tattar.
