Stephen Schroeder may not be a household name on the national disc golf scene yet, but that is going to change soon. Known as one of the farthest throwers on the Charlotte disc golf circuit, and one of the most all-around talented players in the city, Schroeder is ready to show what he’s got on a much brighter stage.

Qualifying for the 2016 USDGC the hard way (Monday open qualifying), Schroeder surprised everyone but himself by playing to a tie for 25th, beating out notable names like Nate Sexton and Philo Brathwaite. Schroeder looks to build on that momentum in 2017 and take his game to another level.

Schroeder joined two thirds of the Final Round Radio crew for Episode 58 where we talked about his ball golf-influenced approach to the game, his quickly growing reputation for teaching some of the best lessons in town and how it felt playing on the same card as defending champ Paul McBeth at this year’s USDGC.
