Player Info – Singles
New Changes for 2022!
Online Registration for USAMPC Singles will open on March 15th, 2022.
Due to situations outside our control, we will not have access to UDisc for the 2022 season and the foreseeable future. USAMPC will continue as planned, but there will be a few changes to the overall structure of USAMPC.
Going forward, tournament directors will have more control over the process of their bracket. The tournament directors will now purchase the USAMPC tournament package, regardless of the size of the local bracket. Each package will include eight Dynamic Discs Prime Moonshine Culprits, eight Latitude 64 Triple Burst Gold Ballista Pros, 1st, and 2nd place trophy discs, eight scorecards, eight pencils, $90 voucher for 1st place, $45 voucher for 2nd place, and a $100 voucher for the tournament director.
In 2022, Local TDs will be able to purchase 8 of the unreleased Westside Discs Moonshine Hatchet 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.
There will not be a State Bracket this year. Instead, after each local bracket has a winner, those details will be submitted to the USAMPC Director by the local tournament director, who will then be in touch with the winner to give the information on how to proceed with attending the USAMPC National Championships in Emporia, Kansas.
For 2022, we will move USAMPC Singles back to the spring and move the USAMPC Doubles back to the fall. That has always been our intention. However, we flipped them around in 2021 since we had not hosted the USMAPC Doubles for over a year.
We will continue the 8-person local brackets. This reduction should help more Local Brackets fill quicker. We will determine the National Championship bracket size based on the number of participating players.
Only players who have won their Local Bracket or are attending in place of a Local Bracket winner who cannot participate 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 $200 Dynamic Discs store credit upon arrival in Emporia.
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 the March 2022 PDGA rating update can play (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 can also 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 and have never been PDGA members.
Local USAMPC Singles qualifier match play brackets will be held throughout the United States and Canada from March through August. A list of these events can be found on the discgolfmatchplay.com website. Players that meet the qualifications described above can pay $55 to compete in one of these brackets. Please contact the TD to get more information on local details. TDs may hold the Local Qualifying Bracket over a few days or a period of a few weeks. The Local Qualifying Bracket TD will determine when the brackets need to be played. The $55 entry fee is a one-time cost.

In addition, each player who comes to compete in the Championship Bracket will receive $200 in store credit upon arriving in Emporia, Kansas.
