Disc golf has been growing at a rapid rate in recent years, and the Ledgestone Insurance Open is a major annual event. The Ledgestone event started in 2011 and has become one of the most popular stops on the touring pros' circuit. Disc golf players from across the country travel to the tournament to participate in an event that is known for its generous payouts.

The Ledgestone Insurance Open has a few different divisions. There are amateurs, pros, and an age-protected Amateur division. The Ledgestone Insurance Open has donated nearly $125,000 to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital over the last three years. The proceeds from the event go towards the hospital.

The Ledgestone Insurance Open is a charity event that focuses on raising money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Disc golf players from around the country can be found at the event and enjoy food, live music, and skill clinics.

Partnership with St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital

Thousands of children with cancer have received treatment at St. Jude, which is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to kids. It is also a leader in treating life-threatening diseases. But treatment can be costly. Families don't always receive the money they need to pay for their child's care. Some get turned down for insurance or are unable to afford a car or housing. These unpaid bills can take a toll on parents and caregivers.

Last year, the charity's fundraising efforts amounted to $40 million. A little more than 2% of the money raised was spent on the hospital's medical care. Another 30% was used for fundraising operations. The hospital follows guidelines for responsible use of donor funds.

Its reserve has climbed to more than $5 billion. The fund is large enough to weather recessions and is a valuable buffer against emergencies. The hospital has also boosted its financial commitment to help more children around the world.

Course record broken by Calvin Heimburg

During the final round of the 2021 Ledgestone Insurance Open, Calvin Heimburg broke the course record. He shot a 7-under-par total and led the MPO division in finding Circle 1 and Circle 2. He climbed 45 spots on the leaderboard.

Calvin has been known for his distance accuracy and his ability to stay out of the rough. He has won 53 professional events, earning over $226,900. He has also signed a contract with Innova through the 2021 season.

The Ledgestone event has become increasingly popular among professional disc golfers and their fans. Since 2014, the tournament has donated over $400,000 to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. It has expanded from an unsanctioned fundraiser to a national tour event. In addition, it has raised the profile of the Pro Tour in the U.S. In the last decade, the Ledgestone event has seen a significant rise in the number of players and the amount of money involved.
