The PDGA Women's Committee is very pleased to announce the fourth edition of the PDGA Women’s Global Event on May 12th, 2018. Inaugurated in 2012, this biennial event broke records in 2014 and made history as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf again in 2016. 61 registered tournaments, spanning 28 states and 6 countries resulted in a turnout of 1,060 women competing in 17 different PDGA divisions. Let's do it again for 2018!
How It Works
On May 12th, women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf at their local participating PDGA Women's Global Event. Scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual tournament directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators playing on the same course layout each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. Please note, the exact same course layout must be used for both rounds. The Global Scores will be updated throughout the day to determine our PDGA Women’s Global Event Champions and the winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy.
*Note for Juniors 12 and Under: We understand that playing two rounds in a day can be a lot of disc golf; especially for the youngsters. This year, Juniors 12 and under will only be required to play one round to be included into the overall PDGA Women’s Global Event. However, there is still the requirement to have 3 propagators (with 8 officially rated rounds of 700+) playing on the same layout as them to get an accurate rating for the PDGA Women’s Global Event.
