Ezra Aderhold, PDGA #121715, is a professional disc golfer from Aberdeen, South Dakota, United States. He’s been member of the PDGA since 2019 and is probably one of the most hyped up disc golfers in recent years and for a reason.

How far can Ezra Aderhold throw?
Ezra Aderhold has thrown an Innova Boss to a distance of 656 feet (200 meters), this incredible feat was also captured by the GK Pro camera crew as Ezra and other professional disc golfers were playing OTB Tour Skins on the Disc Side of Heaven disc golf course. Though, we should take into consideration the fact that during his throw, there was a decent tailwind, which probably helped out quite a bit. Nonetheless, when the conditions are ideal and everything clicks, I am pretty sure Ezra Aderhold can throw bombs out there, which have the potential to break the 700 foot barrier (213+ meters).
