We can’t say it enough: Next Generation Disc Golf is about the players. Your feedback is a huge reason the tour is growing (we’re trending toward an increase of over 50% in participation from last year), and we cannot thank you enough for being a part of it. With that being said, we have some incredible additions to announce. Now, there is more to play for with more options to play.
Your region is getting an incredible boost from our friends at Disc Golf Center. We’re pleased to announce a new, additional $21,000 in regional payouts across the country. That means every division in every region is getting $1,000 in DGC gift cards paid out at the end of the year. All you need to do is play in a qualifier and you are eligible.
Qualifier season is now extended all the way through October in every region, and playing in a qualifier can now get you to the National Championship, as well. That’s right, you can get to the big show by playing in as little as one qualifier. The top seven qualifier performances, ranked by average rating in each region, will be eligible to head to Arizona to have a shot at the brand new car or $35,000 in other prizes
Each qualifier is still an amateur-only PDGA sanctioned C-Tier with $600 added, and now you have more options to play and more options to win. If you don’t have a qualifier near you, let us know! We’d love to get one in your area.
All these new additions don’t mean your Regional Championships are going away, but they will have a different look. Regionals are now known as Next Gen Premier Events, and we are doing everything we can to make them live up to the name.
Each Premier Event will be a PDGA sanctioned B-Tier run by Dave and Synthya with player’s packs valued at over the $150 entry fee ($100 entry for qualifier participants) and over $28,000 in added prizes across the country. Dave, arguably one of the best teachers of the sport, will also provide a world class putting clinic and finals will be filmed, so you can be a YouTube star like the pros. The top 3 performances will punch their ticket to the prestigious National Championship.
Make sure you’re staying tuned to our newsletters and website for updates, and you will want to watch Smashboxx TV live next Tuesday as we announce what our national champion will be driving off in. Who’s next?
