Doubles prior to the USDGC, just got kicked up a notch. Now known as USDGC Doubles (Sept 30 – Oct. 2), the event, which will still kick-off Championship Week, has been reloaded in order to become a truer national title event that draws competitors from across the country.
“This event will be of epic proportion. You do not want to hear about what you missed on Oct. 3rd, so find a qualifier and come join the fun,” said TD “Big Wave” Dave George.
Similar to the USDGC, players have earned invites through various qualifiers held across the country. Those invites went to the top amateur and the top pro team from each qualifier. Players will also earn invites through the Last Chance Qualifer on Sept. 29th at the Winthrop Gold Course in Rock, Hill, S.C..
The top 20 team members from last year’s doubles event have also been awarded invites. Up to 90 teams, competing in either the pro or amateur division will vie for the national doubles title at the famed Winthrop Gold Course and the newly acclaimed Canaan Riverbend Gold Course, also in Rock Hill.
One round per day with three days of competition
Amateur division will be trophy only. Pro division will have $1000 minimum added cash. Players from the top 20 teams from last year are already eligible. Teams can remain intact or either player can find another teammate.
