About this tournament

The PFD Highlander Series returns for the 2022 season! This tournament is a season long, double-elimination match-play event. There is only one open division consisting of 64 players.

This event is a fundraiser for the Amateur PFDO with an entry fee of $20. $10 of each entry fee will go toward the Amateur PFDO and $10 will go to the tournament payout. Projected payouts are listed in the comments section.

All matches are required to be played at the following courses from the tees noted below:
Deer Lakes Park – White tees
Moraine State Park – Blue tees
North Boundary Park – Blue tees
Knob Hill Park – White tees
Schenley Park – White tees

Matches will start on April 11th, 2022, and the final will be on or before October 24th, 2022. Note that this is a year long commitment. Please be sure that you can attend for most of the year or you will forfeit your remaining matches.

This is a 128 player double elimination bracket with standard matchups. Initially, players will be broken up into brackets of 16 based on rating so that if you stay in the winner's bracket, you will play similarly skilled played. Therefore, to start out, the #1 seed will play the #16. #2 vs #15. #17 vs #32, #18 vs #31 etc. As it is double elimination, once you fall to the loser's bracket you will end up playing people from the full bracket, so make sure you stay on the winner's side!

Players will receive an email from the tournament email account assigning their match and setting a 2-week window during which the players must play their match. The email will assign a player 1 and player 2. Player 1 must propose 2 of the courses from the list above. Player 2 must choose one of the two courses and propose four dates for the match. Player 1 must select one of the 4 dates for the match and a time shall be agreed upon.

Each match will consist of 18 holes at the aforementioned course and will follow the PDGA’s official rules for match play found in Appendix A of the PDGA’s official rules. https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-rules-disc-golf/appendix-a There can be no ties in this event; therefore, all ties shall be settled immediately with a sudden death playoff.

If Player 1 fails to propose two courses they forfeit the match. If Player 2 fails to select a course and propose 4 dates, they forfeit the match. If Player 1 fails to select a date and time, they forfeit the match. If neither Player 1 or Player 2 contact the tournament by email to report a score or forfeit prior to the scheduled round completion date, the match will count as two losses (automatic elimination) for both Player 1 and Player 2.

After the match, it is the responsibility of the winning player to report the score to the Tournament Email Address ([email redacted]).

The championship and semi-final rounds may be set by the tournament director at a course of the Tournament Director’s choosing and on a date convenient for the Tournament Director and participants.
