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 Round One tee time. Paper scorecards will be made available at each course for backup purposes. Every player/caddie on each card is required to keep scorecards. Cards have the option to keep a paper backup, or the PDGA app/web app. Reconcile scores (if using paper) and make sure to complete your PDGA scorecard.

RULES

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.

The Caddy Book and PDGA digital scorecard will have all course and hole rules. Please refer to those resources.


Per PDGA rules 33% of each field is being held for sponsors, if these slots aren't fielded they will be filled by the waitlist.
On June 1st, Sponsor exemptions will be lifted and division numbers will be shuffled
