Team Innova Cleans Up at 2024 PDGA Masters World Championships

​ ​The first Major victory for Kevin Babbit, the 14th for Juliana Korver, and the 13th for Pete May may hold different numbers, but the feeling of triumph remains priceless. Ohn Scoggins and Joe Rovere, both on winning streaks at Worlds, and Amy Schiller, who went 34 years between her two World titles, all understand the weight and prestige of winning the PDGA Worlds. Congratulations to all six 2024 PDGA Masters World Champions from Team Innova! Ohn Scoggins (FP40) began her World Championship just days after taking 2nd place in a playoff at the DGPT Beaver State Fling. Despite the physical and mental exhaustion, Scoggins opened her Masters Worlds with a blazing -9 round, earning a 1011 rating and a 6-stroke lead over the field. She maintained her dominance throughout the tournament, shooting or tying the hot round every day and ultimately securing her 4th-consecutive Masters World Championship title with a 25-stroke margin. As Scoggins herself says, whether it’s a C-tier or a Worlds event, winning always feels good. Joe Rovere (MP40) entered the tournament with only 60% physical capacity, but that didn’t stop him from shooting a 1071-rated, -12 round on the second day, the best round of the entire tournament across all divisions. Despite a nagging shoulder injury, Rovere played at a world-class level for five consecutive days, earning his 3rd-consecutive PDGA Masters World Championship title. He strategically played in high winds, keeping his disc in-bounds and discing down to a Thunderbird while others threw higher-speed discs. In the end, Rovere beat the field by a commanding 15 strokes. As he reflects on his win, Rovere acknowledges the importance of mental preparation and happiness in his success. Juliana Korver (FP50) added another Major title to her impressive collection with her win at the 2024 PDGA Masters World Championships, bringing her total to 13. She defended her FP50 division title from last year and was the only player in her field to finish under par for the event. Despite competing and succeeding in Disc Golf Pro Tour events in the FPO division, Korver continues to dominate in the Masters division, inspiring others with her ability to compete at the highest level for multiple decades. Kevin Babbit (MP55) has been playing in PDGA Majors for over 25 years and across five different divisions. Last week, he finally earned his first Major title, winning the MP55 division at the 2024 Masters World Championships after recovering from a 6-stroke deficit in the first two rounds. His impressive performance serves as a reminder that each victory is unique and irreplaceable.
