About this tournament

Welcome to the 40th Annual Kansas City Wide Open!

This event is a PDGA A/C tier sanctioned event. What does that mean? For professionals, the event is a PDGA A tier. For amateurs, we are treating you like you're playing in a PDGA A tier, but we want non-PDGA members and non-current PDGA members to have a chance to play.

The tournament: Each player will play three rounds on three different courses. The first and third rounds will be on tee times, and the second round will be a shotgun start. We hope all players will finish their second round and head to Bad Rock Creek to watch the final round in the MPO division!

Details:

The event is a three day event, Friday through Sunday. Players must be available to play all three days. Tee times may start as early as 8:00 AM and be as late at 12:00 PM. Once tee times are published, they cannot be changed. Tee times will be published to https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/56902

For professional players, this event is a PDGA A tier event. As this is an A tier, payout includes 100% of net entry fees plus minimum of $3000 cash added to the Pro purse (across all Pro divisions, which includes the FPO and MPO divisions in the separate tournament).

For amateur players, this will be a True Amateur event. What does that mean?

The PDGA provides information about True Amateur events at https://www.pdga.com/td/true-amateur - be sure to check it out. Essentially, True Amateur events focus on providing an outstanding event experience (including the player pack) and less on payouts. With that in mind, please note:

Recreational (FA3, MA3) and Junior (FJ18, MJ18) divisions will be trophy only.
Advanced (for example, FA1, FA40, MA1, MA40, MA50, MA60) and Intermediate (FA2, MA2) divisions will have a merchandise payout for the top 10% of the field for each division.

Player Packs:
Details coming soon, but you won't be disappointed!

Scoring:
The Kansas City Wide Open will utilize PDGA live scoring, and live scoring will be your official scorecard (https://www.pdga.com/score). The access code will be provided to you on day one of the event before your tee time at the course you're playing. Paper scorecards will be made available at each course for backup purposes. Each card is required to keep two scorecards; uDisc is also an acceptable backup.

As this is a PDGA sanctioned event (and disc golf is a self-governed sport) please familiarize yourself with the rules:

https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-rules-disc-golf

If the card has a disagreement over the rules or the application of the rules, please do not engage in argument. Simply play a provisional, finish the hole from both positions, record both scores, and see your course director after the round has concluded. Your course director, as a PDGA official, will make a ruling.
