About this tournament

Welcome to the 2021 Midwest Amateur Championship.

This is a True Amateur Event for all Amateur Divisions.
This is a Trophy/Players Pack Only for all Amateur Divisions.

However, since this is an Amateur Championship, the MAC is adding a special payout to the top 20% in MA1 and FA1 divisions only. MA1 will payout spots 2-25 and FA1 will payout spots 2-8. (This is based on a full field of 120 MA1 and 24 FA1.) These numbers can adjust based on the ending divisional totals.

As always, we will have a HUGE Players Package!

For those who have too many discs or just want to save a few dollars, we have added an option to decline the player's pack.

You will be playing 3 total rounds on a Tee Time Schedule, on three of the four courses.

On Feb 1st, the divisions have predetermined caps. On April 1st, we will re-evaluate those caps.

PDGA DIGITAL SCORECARD

We will be using digital scorecards for this event. if you would like to review and research this method, please follow this link:
https://www.pdga.com/help/tournament-management/official-hole-scoring

The access code will be given during check-in at the event.

To start your round with digital scoring you will need to go to the following link: www.pdga.com/score.

1. You will be prompted to enter the Access Code and press the Submit button.
2. Search for your name. You can search by typing in part of your name or PDGA Number. Once your name appears, you select it and confirm. This person is now the “scorekeeper”.
3. You will be prompted to select the round for which you are currently playing.
4. The scoring screen will load with your name. The default starting hole is hole 1, so be sure to choose the correct starting hole if for some reason hole 1 is not where the group is starting (e.g. shotgun start).
5. Scores for each player will be automatically defaulted to whatever the par is for the hole that is being scored. The player can use the plus or minus buttons to add or remove strokes. When all players have the correct scores, clicking Save & Continue will upload the scores and the page will automatically reload on the hole that follows.
6. The teeing order is indicated by a number presented to the left of each player's name.

If players are having issues with live scoring, they are welcome to use UDisc. It is encouraged as a backup anyway. Players need to make sure they verify all scores with the entire group before showing the TD onsite!

All players will have access to a paper scorecard as well to use as a backup option.
