Player Info – Singles

New Changes for 2020!

 

We are excited to announce the players pack discs for USAMPC Singles: Each competitor will receive a Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Raider and a Latitude 64 Retro Moonshine Pure! 

Once all of the State/Province Brackets are complete, we will host both a Championship Bracket and a Consolation Bracket in Emporia, KS.  The winners from each State/Province Bracket or each state’s representative will play in the Championship Bracket.  The players who qualify to come to Emporia but have a loss from the State/Province Bracket will have the opportunity to compete in the Consolation Bracket.  Only players who have won their State/Province Bracket or are attending in place of a State/Province Bracket winner who cannot attend will be eligible to compete in the Championship Bracket.

The top 8 players in the Championship Bracket will receive a prize package.

Players who qualify for the Championship Bracket will receive $250 cash and $500 Dynamic Discs store credit upon arrival in Emporia.

In 2020, Local and State TD’s will be able to purchase up to 16 unreleased Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Vandals per bracket at $10 each.  TDs are free to do as they please with these limited edition discs, including selling them to participants or other local disc golfers.

How it works:

Who?

Current PDGA member  – All amateur disc golfers can play regardless of their rating.  Professional disc golfers rated 969 or below as of January 1st, 2020 can play (this is based on the current PDGA policy which allows professionals to play MA1 in amateur events).  New members who do not have a current PDGA rating are also eligible to compete.

Non-current PDGA members – Disc golfers who have never been rated 970 or above.

Non-PDGA members – Disc golfers who are not a current PDGA member and have never been a PDGA member. 

What?

Local USAMPC Singles qualifier match play brackets will be held throughout the United States and Canada in April. A list of these events can be found on the UDisc app. Players that meet the qualifications described above can pay $45 to compete in one of these brackets.  Please contact the TD to get more information on local details.  The Local Qualifying Bracket may be conducted over a few days or over the period of a few weeks.  The Local Qualifying Bracket TD will determine the timing of when the brackets need to be played. The $45 entry fee is a one time cost.

Note: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS registering through UDisc, and players will check a box confirming they understand the refund policy.

Players will receive a Dynamic Discs Fuzion Burst Raider and Latitude 64 Retro Moonshine Pure in their player pack. Regardless of how far a player advances, there are no additional entry fees for bracket winners after the $45 Local Qualifying Bracket fee.  Winners of the Local Qualifying Brackets (4 Local brackets within a state are required) will move onto their respective State Bracket.  The winners of each State Bracket will earn their right to go to the Championship Bracket in Emporia, Kansas from June 26-28, 2020.

Championship Bracket

All players who win their State/Province Bracket are eligible to compete in the Championship Bracket in Emporia.  If the winner is unable to participate, then the spot will be offered to the 2nd place finisher from that State/Province Bracket, then to the 3rd place finisher if the 2nd place finisher cannot attend, and so forth.  Each player who comes to Emporia to compete in the Championship Bracket will receive $250 cash and $500 in store credit upon arriving to Emporia.

The Championship Bracket can accommodate 64 players, and in the event, we do not have a full bracket, there may be byes during the first round.

If a player from the Championship Bracket loses within the first three rounds, they will automatically be moved over to the Consolation Bracket.

 

Consolation Bracket

Any player who competed in a local bracket may participate in the Consolation Bracket (see registration schedule below).

There may be a nominal fee to compete in the Consolation Bracket for players not representing their State/Province. The fee will be determined once the local brackets have all been concluded.  The fee will not be greater than $40.

Schedule for players to register for the Consolation Bracket
1. The Top 4 from any State/Province Bracket. (registration dates TBD)
2. The Top 8 from any State/Province Bracket. (registration dates TBD)
3. Any player who participated in a Local Bracket. (registration dates TBD)
4. Any eligible Amateur or player who would have qualified to compete in a local bracket.  These players must pay for a USAMPC players package ($45), as well as any additional fee charged.

The Prize Package for the Consolation bracket will be based on the number of players participating

Any player from the Consolation Bracket that is eliminated in the first three rounds, will automatically be registered to compete in the free Bonus B Tier on Saturday June 27th, 2020.

When?

Local Qualifying Brackets – March/April 2020
State/Province Brackets – May 2020
Championship and Consolation Bracket in Emporia, Kansas – June 26-28, 2020

Where?

Bracket TDs will establish the locations for the Local Qualifying Brackets matches.
State or Provincial Coordinators (or a designee) will establish the dates for State/Province Finals. 
The Championship and Consolation Bracket will be hosted in Emporia, Kansas.

Why?

Match play is an exciting way to compete as a disc golfer. Match play has grown in popularity, and the unique format provides an opportunity for using a different strategy than what disc golfers typically employ playing traditional stroke play. The event also allows amateurs another opportunity to experience tournament disc golf at the highest level.

Sign up here! You can now pay through UDisc once you register! When registering, you will have 10 minutes to complete your registration and pay for your spot.  If you fail to complete the registration and pay your entry fee within 10 minutes, your reserved spot will be released.
