The world's best disc golfers arrived this week to Nokia, Finland. This year the European Open has the strongest field in its history, when 13 out of the 15 best players in the world compete at The Beast. In the MPO division, there are over 80 +1000 rated players, and in the FPO division there are only two under 900 rated women.
