Are there any divisions? For example Masters?
There is only one division: Amateur. No age or gender protected divisions are offered. You have to play in the MA1 PDGA division in a qualifier or have a high enough amateur Player Rating to be eligible to qualify. That means if you are a woman of "master's" age, you still have to play in the MA1 division of a qualifier or have a high enough player rating to qualify. Rule 804.08 of the PDGA rules of play states, "...Female players may compete in male divisions if they choose...". The reasoning behind this is that if you are good enough to be playing for the U.S. Amateur title, you are good enough to play in the toughest Amateur division to qualify.
How did you pick the qualifiers that you did?
An event by me draws more than a C tier in North Dakota, what's up?
We try our best to get the qualifying tournaments determined as early as possible, but sometimes the sanctioning or even the existence of a tournament won't be known in time. If you would like to submit a tournament for consideration next year, please email with the details.
I qualified, but I still might not get in?
There is a possibility that even if you qualify, you may not get into the tournament. The reason is we have X number of qualifying events and we are going to invite the top 20% of the MA1 players in that event. Based on the number of entrants last year plus the 250 player rating invites, this yields approximately 550 invitations. The field will be limited to 148 players. Invitations will be sent out in groups based on the dates and published results of the qualifying events. What this boils down to is the sooner you qualify means you have the opportunity to register for the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship.
If someone has already qualified, do you take the next person in line?
In past years, the answer would have been yes. However, this policy has been changed to maintain the highest poosible competitive standards. If Player A has previously qualified and finishes in a qualifying position at another event, that qualifying position will no longer be extended below the cutoff line.
I qualified at the (blank) tournament, when do I get my invitation?
You may have received some information at the qualifying event but our Tournament Director will e-mail your official invite after the results are posted and the PDGA has given us the qualified players’ e-mails. Please be sure the PDGA has your correct e-mail address. If you have not received your invite soon after you have qualified, please contact us.
