How To Follow the 2019 Delaware Disc Golf Challenge

They say there's no rest for the wicked. That goes double for many of the pros trying to track down a PDGA National Tour Points Series title.

Just six days after the final putts dropped at the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships in Peoria, Illinois, the competitors most willing to test their endurance and traverse I-70 for 825 miles will be greeted by the famed Iron Hill Disc Golf Course in Newark, Delaware, as the Delaware Disc Golf Challenge signals the entrance into the wooded East Coast corridor of the season. It's a quick turnaround, to be sure. But with the title of PDGA National Tour Champion -- and $35,000 in bonuses -- up for grabs, there's plenty of motivation available.

In addition to motivation, there will also be media, because the hardest working teams in disc golf are also driven to help us deliver the best tournament experience possible. That means it's time to binge on the rest of your Worlds coverage and make sure the pantry is stocked. There's even more disc golf in store this weekend when the Challenge runs from Friday through Sunday.

Open Women's Lead Card | Feature card TBA

It's hard to argue that any single media outlet has done as much to help grow women's disc golf as much as Terry Miller, aka The Disc Golf Guy, so it's only fitting that he put the FPO lead card on display for some next-day coverage from Delaware.
