The week-long elections are now over and we have the pleasure to present the captains of the Presidents Cup 2015. The elections gathered more votes than ever before. A total of 1941 votes were cast – 1239 for two Team USA candidates and 702 for three Team Europe candidates. We want to thank all the candidates – Paul Francz, Derek Robins, Hans Tegebäck, Avery Jenkins and Eric McCabe – for running for captain, and of course the disc golf community for your support and enthusiasm!
