World Record Disc Golf Throw – David Wiggins Jr.

On Friday, April 13th, 16 year old David Wiggins Jr. launched a 134-gram Blizzard Champion Boss high into the desert sky. When it returned to earth, spotters confirmed the disc had traveled 836′ (255m) and had broken the world distance record. A record that stood untouched for nearly a decade. David was competing in the the High Desert Distance Challenge III in Primm, NV (elevation 2618′). David’s throw bested Christian Sandström’s record of 820′ that was set way back on April 26, 2002 with an Innova DX Valkyrie.

Friday’s weather was breezy & cold with a threat of rain showers. Nearly all the competitors were throwing Blizzard Champion models. David’s record setting throw was made at approximately 3:00pm PDT during his fourth throw of the second distance set. Winds were blowing from the South at 14.5 mph. David was throwing 150g Blizzard Bosses but decided to try the 134g Boss instead. And the rest is history.
