Player Info – Singles
NEW for 2019!
Competitors who win their local bracket but do not win their state bracket will have the opportunity to come to Emporia! We will have a stroke play tournament on Thursday, June 20 for all these competitors to qualify for any available empty slots in the national bracket that begins Friday, June 21. For example, if there are 58 state winners, that leaves 6 open slots in our bracket of 64. The top six scores will determine who will make the national bracket. Ties will be played off if necessary.
Also new for 2019, state bracket winners will receive $1,000 in store credit at the Dynamic Discs retail store, instead of the $500 cash provided last year.
In addition to the B-Tier scheduled on Saturday, there will also be a flex start C-Tier scheduled for both Friday and Sunday for competitors not moving through the bracket.
This year, we will offer up to 16 unreleased Latitude 64 Opto Moonshine Keystones per bracket at $10 each for local and state TDs. TDs are free to do as they please with these.
Current PDGA member guidelines – Disc golfers rated 969 or below as of January 1, 2019. All amateur disc golfers can play regardless of their rating (even if it is above 969). 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 current PDGA members or are so new to the PDGA that they do not have a rating are eligible to play in the event.
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 when registering through UDisc and players will check a box confirming they understand the refund policy.
Players will receive a Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Escape and Latitude 64 Zero Medium Keystone in their player pack. If a player advances to the next levels, there are not additional entry fees. Winners of Local Qualifying Brackets will move on to the State/Province Bracket. Local Qualifier winners are eligible to travel to Emporia the day before the National bracket to compete for the remaining spots to get a full 64 player bracket. Winners of the State/Province Bracket will move on to the Championship Bracket in Emporia, Kansas (June 20-23, 2019).
Local Qualifying Brackets – March/April 2019

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.
Look for a bracket near you and sign up to play! Players can sign up for brackets on February 15th! Registration for players will conclude on April 1st. Sign up here! You can now pay through UDisc once you register! You will have 10 minutes to pay for your spot. Until then, your spot will be pending and will be removed after the time frame ends.
