Meet the TD: John Minicuci

Discraft is honored to welcome John Minicuci as Tournament Director for both the 2013 Discraft Great Lakes Open NT and United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship Major.  He will tackle these two massive undertakings on back to back weekends, and as you can see, he has the experience and disc golf cred to get the job done with the same quality and consistency you’ve come to expect from anything with the Discraft name attached. 

When you see John, say hello and thanks for his service to disc golf.
