The PDGA Women's Committee is very pleased to announce that, following its postponement in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fifth edition of the PDGA Women’s Global Event will now take place the weekend of May 8 - 9, 2021. Inaugurated in 2012, this biennial event continues to break records as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. In 2018 there were 80 registered tournaments, spanning 39 states and 14 countries with a combined turnout of 2092 women competing in 23 different PDGA divisions. We can break that record again in 2021!
How It Works
On May 8th and 9th, women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf at their local participating PDGA Women's Global Event. Scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual tournament directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators playing on the same course layout each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. Please note, the exact same course layout must be used for both rounds. The global results will be updated throughout the day to determine our PDGA Women’s Global Event Champions and the winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy.
- For one-day, two-round events falling on either May 8 or May 9, 2021, both rounds on the day of the event will be included.
- For a two-day, two-round event on May 8 - 9, 2021, both rounds will be included.
- For events of three or more days on the weekend including May 8-9, 2021, the round(s) on May 8 will be included. If only one round was played on May 8, then the first round on May 9 will be included.
*Note for Juniors 12 and Under: As in 2018, Juniors 12 and under will have only one round (May 8th or 9th, 2021) included into the overall PDGA Women’s Global Event. The layout played by Juniors must have at least 3 propagators (with 8 officially rated rounds of 700+) playing that same layout to get an accurate rating for the PDGA Women’s Global Event.
- To be a part of this event just register to play in a local PDGA sanctioned tournament scheduled for the weekend of May 8-9, 2021.
- Check with your local tournament director to make sure they've registered the event as a Women's Global Event with the PDGA.
