Just to clarify: each player is allowed one caddy. Those caddies that come with the player do not have to pay to get in to the event. Our goal is to avoid having people get in to the event for free by claiming they are so and so's caddy.

Has it been decided yet when fpo will tee off? I saw there are super fun activities planned like dinners and mini golf and parties and they begin at 6 pm. Will we be able to participate or will we miss out?

Sarah DeMar   June 25 at 1:04pm

My vote is fpo tees off between 9:30 and 11:30

Nate Heinold   June 29 at 1:07am

I did previously state this incorrectly; FPO will tee off last each day to stay consistent with the DGN broadcast times.

Matt Lacey   July 2 at 7:16pm

As a fan, it would be much better if the DGPT had the FPO tee mid-morning, so we get all 18 holes of both FPO and MPO. Getting only 9 holes of FPO coverage is kind of a bummer. Worlds was awesome. Spending like 8 hours watching good coverage for 5 days was the bomb.

How does the spectating work? Are you allowed to follow a card or are there areas you have to stay at?

In past years it has been fairly opened. The lead card, or other filmed cards may have some ropes to help corral the crowd.

Christopher Blodgett   July 20 at 1:21am

I was curious about this as well. It seems from the “spectator guide” that there are only 4-5 spots that spectators can be

Lauren St. Clair   July 21 at 5:44pm

So I am caddying for Jessica Weese. What will I have to do??

Roy Lyons    June 22 at 11:45am

Does the weekly parking pass allow the bearer to play the course in the days before the tournament? If not, what is the fee to play a round?

But a caddy can come carry the bag but not play, right?

Nate Heinold   June 23 at 1:18pm

Yes

Roy Lyons   June 24 at 2:41am

Thanks!

Phill Dilone    June 21 at 3:16pm

Sounds good and thank you. I can see where that has been weird in the past. We can assign a caddie for the weekend and avoid this while regulating what person tags along. So caddies will not be forced to take udisclive scores. Just asking bc they are paid and not a volunteer. If they do will they be considered a volunteer and be compensated accordingly I.e with disc or merchandise. Also is the Parking pass essentially a spectators pass?

Last year as well as this year, the event provided a scoring volunteer for each and every card...

Nate Heinold   June 21 at 3:33pm

We are providing volunteers for scoring. The parking pass is a spectator pass.

Ragna Bygde    June 20 at 12:47am

Rule 3.05 B: . A caddie is a person who carries a player's equipment or provides other assistance during the round. Players may designate one caddie at a time during their round

Nate Heinold   June 23 at 1:18pm

Players are not allowed to have "5" caddies walk along with them. That was what was being abused.

Ragna Bygde   June 28 at 2:26pm

Thank you for clarifying, Nate!

Andy Martin    June 16 at 5:28pm

Will Caddys be allowed to practice the course with the person they are caddying for?

The only people who get into the event for free are players, staff, volunteers and media.

Jessica O   June 20 at 12:40pm

Will this be the same for Ledgestone or only dglo ?

Nate Heinold   June 21 at 1:44pm

Same for both events.

Jeff Cline    June 14 at 2:33am

Is it allowed for anyone to go watch the pros play? New to the sport and I'd love to come out and spectate?

https://dglo.net/spectators/ Follow this link and purchase a spectator pass.

Alex Grimes   June 17 at 2:26am

So maybe I'm stupid but this link takes me to a page to purchase a parking pass or a VIP pass. If caddies are required to have a spectator pass is that the VIP pass?

They were removed. The course is set, if you want to provide feedback you can do so through the contact form on the PDGA tournament page or you can do so on your own page. This forum is intended to post information about the event..

Sarah DeMar   May 28 at 2:03pm

Were any women consulted about the changes? If so, who?

Nate Heinold   May 28 at 3:04pm

Sarah, please see the above post. This forum is for informational purposes about the event, nothing more. Please follow the instructions I gave you above.
