One of the fun perks of being the PDGA State Coordinator is that I get to come up with a way to determine the USDGC State Representative. They give the State Coordinator the option to do anything from simply picking a person to go and represent the state to having an event that determines the representative.
This year they are going to do a performance based portion of the USDGC called the “Performance Flight. In this group the winner will be determined by their score at the event related to their skill level (for more info about the USDGC and how winners will be determined click here). This means if you have a rating of 875 or higher you have the opportunity to play at the USDGC and possibly win.
The option that they encourage for selecting the representative is to select an event within the state and let that event be the qualifier. I’ve decided to use the Brandenburg Open #21. In the past I selected the Freeman Lake Open and the Southern Kentucky Championship. This year I wanted to draw a bigger crowd to a course that is near and dear to me.
All divisions will play the exact same layout and score will be submitted to the USDGC to use their formula to determine who will be awarded the State Representative spot.
Hope to see you there.
