After a grueling day of golf in unseasonably warm temperatures at Hawk Hollow DGC, a two-way tie for the lead has emerged between Paige Pierce and Kristin Tattar, with the rest of the field five or more strokes behind. With only Sunday’s round remaining at Loriella Park, it’s certainly shaping up to be an intense fight to the finish for the 2019 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship title.

Unseasonably warm might be a bit of an understatement. It was just plain hot. With many of the holes lacking shade, the 95 degree heat index was slowly but surely taking its toll on the players.

The opening day of the single largest women’s event in PDGA history, the 2019 US Women’s Disc Golf Championship (USWDGC), went off on Friday without a hitch. 166 women took to the tees with 16 divisions of amateurs and pros spread out across four courses in the greater Fredericksburg, Virginia area.

Another year, another record broken. 

In 1999, Harold Duvall ran what would be considered the first United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships (1999 Women’s National Championships) in Charlotte, North Carolina, hosting a field of 21 women between two divisions. Now, 19 years later, the number of competitors has grown eight-fold, as 160-plus have made the trek to Lansing, Michigan, for their shot at the national title.

ZÜCA has been a proud supporter of disc golf since entering the market in 2015 by donating funds to support the PDGA Innovation Grant program as well as supporting the PDGA National Tour and signing on to be one of the first sponsors of the Disc Golf Pro Tour. This year, they have extended their support for the sport by becoming a gold sponsor of the bi-annual PDGA Women’s Global Event, happening this Saturday, May 12, 2018.

We're now just 10 days away from the fourth edition of the PDGA Women's Global Event (WGE). On May 12th, more than 1,700 women from 13 countries and 39 states will tee off at their local, satellite WGEs to compete against all women and girls competing in the same division. The accessibility of these virtual, ratings-based PDGA events and the encouraging atmosphere they provide have been essential factors in facilitating the growth of the female disc golfing demographic since the WGE's inaugural event in 2012.
