Grand Prize: 2017 Kia Soul

Next Generation Disc Golf sponsored by Latitude 64° is pleased to announce the Grand Prize for this year’s National Championship winner, a 2017 Kia Soul.  Competitors register to play in one of 108 qualifier tournaments across the country held between April and June.  Top finishers qualify for their Regional Championship, held between July and October, the top finishers advance to the National Championship on November 17-19 in Fountain Hills, Arizona, where, amongst other groundbreaking prizes, the winner will take home a 2017 Kia Soul.

This isn’t a first for Disc Golf, but it has been a while.  In 1974, Dan “Stork” Roddick, PDGA #003 won the American Flying Disc Open in Rochester, NY taking home a new Datsun B210 awarded by Tournament Director Jim Palmeri, PDGA #023.  Both are members of the sport’s Hall of Fame.

 “My folks were both there for the final day. It doesn’t get much more fun than that. A shining moment of my life for sure.” Said Stork reflecting on the prize.

“We’re proud to honor this historical achievement and excited to announce the Kia Soul.  You may not believe this, but giving away a car is not very straightforward – we have a newfound appreciation for Jim!” said Dave Feldberg, #12696

“The Kia Soul embraces a perfect blend of economy, space, dependability and features.   I’ve logged hundreds of thousands of miles on the road and the Soul is a great fit for a touring pro.” Dave continued.

Online registration for all Qualifier Tournaments, the first step toward winning the car, opens March 7, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
