Barry Schultz is a professional disc golfer based in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He has played disc golf since the early 1980s, and has been a professional since 1992.[1] He is on the Innova Hall of Fame team. For a number of years, he was one of the most dominant players on tour. From 2003-2009, he held the single season earnings record with $40,896, though this was surpassed by Nikko Locastro in 2010. He is one of five men to win more than one World Championship. He is also a three time United States Disc Golf Champion, one of only three people who have won the event more than once, the others being Ken Climo and Will Schusterick. Schultz additionally holds a Masters (40 and over) World Championship. He and Climo are the only two men to earn both an Open and Masters world title. Schultz was inducted into the PDGA Hall of Fame in 2013.
