Mikko Wikman: EPT-X - events that have something extra than other events

EPT-X event manager Mikko Wikman: “EPT-X is a direct successor for the NBDG-X series. NBDG-X was our idea to offer experiences to players of all levels. Experiences with disc golf but also with local specialities, unique courses and special gatherings with dinners etc. Unfortunately, due COVID-19 the NBDG-X series had to be canceled twice. For 2022 we decided to organize the European Pro Tour for Europe's top players and EPT-X was born to be the supporting tour for EPT.”

“The basic idea remains still the same - experiences. Most of the tour destinations are courses which can't reach the EPT level. Their location might not be ideal or possibly the course isn't challenging enough for top players. But these are the locations to offer the experiences. There are also some higher quality events with tougher courses on the tour. Added to experiences, those events might be seen on EPT in the future,” added Wikman.
