EDMOND — Players braved the rainy weather Sunday morning to play in the fourth annual Tye Cunningham disc golf tournament.
The annual event is named for Tye Cunningham, who died in 2004 at age 29. Cunningham was an avid fan of the sport and worked with city officials to build Edmond's course.
Disc golf, once known as “Frisbee” golf, began around 1970, about 50 years after Yale University students first began tossing inverted Frisbie Baking Co. pie tins for fun and more than 20 years after the first plastic toy “flying disc” was manufactured.
Hundreds of thousands of people play disc golf on more than 3,000 courses around the world. Professionals can earn thousands of dollars a weekend, and tournament purses last year totaled $2 million.
