USDGC Doubles Main Event is all Am’
2017 USDGC Doubles will be an amateur only event. Qualifying events may still have pro divisions, however, only the top amateur team will receive invites to the USDGC Doubles main event (Sept. 29 – Oct.1st). Amateur status will be determined by PDGA Major event standards. In addition, qualifying teams are expected to remain as a team for the USDGC Doubles main event.
Exempt from qualifying are the top three amateur teams (and ties) from last year.
