Player Info – Doubles
New Changes for 2021!
Since the USAMPC Doubles Championships was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19, we have decided to flip flop singles and doubles – we will be hosting the Doubles in the Spring and the Singles in the Fall.
We are excited to announce the player pack discs for USAMPC Doubles: Each competitor will receive a Dynamic Discs Prime Moonshine Emac Judge and a Latitude 64 Opto SPZ2.
In 2021, Local TD’s will be able to purchase up to 16 unreleased Dynamic Discs Moonshine Evaders. 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:
Current PDGA member – All amateur disc golfers can play regardless of their rating. Professional disc golfers rated 969 or below as of January 1st, 2021 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.
Local USAMPC Doubles qualifier match play brackets will be held throughout the United States and Canada from March until May. A list of these events can be found on the UDisc app. Players that meet the qualifications described above can pay $45 per player or $90 per team 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 per player 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 Prime Moonshine Emac Judge and Latitude 64 Opto SPZ2 in their player pack. Regardless of how far a player advances, there are no additional entry fees for bracket winners after the $45 per player Local Qualifying Bracket fee. Winners of the Local Qualifying Brackets will earn their right to go to the Championship Bracket in Emporia, Kansas from June 24-27th, 2021.
All players who win their Local 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 Local Bracket, then to the 3rd place finisher if the 2nd place finisher cannot attend, and so forth.

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.
