These percentages were created prior to the start of the event and changed dramatically as the it played out. To see how, check out Win Probability on UDisc Live.
Note that Win Probability doesn't always match up with Disc Golf World Ranking because Win Probability takes into account how players have historically performed on holes of specific distances and difficulty and compares that information just to holes they'll face at a single event. That means the probabilities above relate to how players' historical performances suggest they'll do just at the 2023 Music City Open whereas World Ranking is a broader assessment of past performance.

Music City Open Disc Golf Tournament History
The first Music City Open happened in 1998, but another wasn't held until 2010 when various local clubs finally came together to form the Music City Disc Golf Club. This was a major turning point for Nashville disc golf because the local clubs had previously had a very fractured relationship.
"The disc golf community in Nashville was kind of segmented and tribal," 2021 Music City Open tournament director Wil McKaskle told us. "The idea behind Music City Disc Golf was to bring all of these courses and their clubs or crews together into one organization that could work toward a common goal of raising awareness of the sport in the area and also making Nashville and the Middle Tennessee area a center for disc golf."
The event jumped from Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) B-tier to A-tier status in 2013. After being cancelled due to COVID in 2020, the Music City Open went down in the record books in 2021 as the last hurrah of the PDGA National Tour (NT), an event series that had a 19-year history before the PDGA and DGPT announced a closer relationship that put an end to it.
Under the tournament direction of Zachary Hoy, the Music City Open was a DGPT Silver Event in 2022 and is debuting as an Elite Event in 2023.
Like in 2022, all three rounds of the tournament were played at a temporary course laid out at Nashville's Mill Ridge Park. Originally designed by former PDGA Events Manager Shawn Sinclair and played for the first time at the 2021 Music City Open, the course has been tweaked based on player feedback over the last two years. Expect fairly open fairways but thick, punishing rough that will eat up errant throws.
