Do we get to spectate the pros as being part of the am event?

Nick Miller   12 hours ago

Yes, I believe every Am is receiving a 3-day GA pass in the player pack.

Am I miss reading this 10$ to enter? Or is that waitlist fee and more?

Joe Thompson   June 17 at 1:31pm

It's $10 to get on the waitlist. Then if you do happen to secure a spot, you'll have to pay the rest of the entry fee.

Keirstyn Davis    May 25 at 2:45pm

I see there is like no am women signed up. If I signed up for the fa1 waitlist, would I get in? Or is it totally full?

Ty Tannatt   May 26 at 12:25am

Hi Keirstyn, this side of the event is completely full. There are currently 10 people on the waitlist for the pool you would need to enter to get into FA1. I doubt 10 people will drop out of this event with how close we are, but it is certainly possible. It only costs $10 to sign up for the waitlist and you get your $10 back if you do not get bumped from the waitlist into the tournament.

Nick Miller    May 17 at 6:37pm

Is everything still set in place for Am divisions, with MPO now playing the DGPT event? I assume we don't need to watch for any new registration?

Nick Miller   May 17 at 6:38pm

Ah I see the event got renamed to reflect this. Nevermind!

Ty Tannatt   May 17 at 7:07pm

Nope, you are good to go. Nothing additional needed.

Travis Almond    April 20 at 2:09am

Signed up for intermediate, but would rather play MA40. Any way I can switch?

Ty Tannatt   May 12 at 11:30am

Hi Travis, if you switch you would be moved to the waitlist for the MA40 pool since it is full. There are already 9 people on the waitlist on that pool so you may not get in if you wish to switch.

Aaron Palmer    April 4 at 6:26pm

How soon prior to the tournament will people on the waitlist know they are getting in? Or is it a, show up Friday and hope that some people don’t show up? I am not privy to how the waitlist works.

Jim Knudson   April 5 at 9:12pm

IF people drop out, Waitlist players are added in order.

Ty Tannatt   April 6 at 7:15pm

Hi Aaron, we are still finalizing this. This is not a show up Friday and hope people don't show up kind of tournament. We will most likely finalize the pools the Wednesday of the event. Any cancellations after that will not be filled due to time constraints with everything going on.

Keirstyn Davis    April 3 at 1:45am

If I sign up for the fa1 waitlist, will I get in?

Ty Tannatt   April 5 at 2:31pm

Hi Keirstyn, if you sign up for FA1 you will be 7th on the waitlist. That means 7 people would have to cancel their registration in order for you to get in. If you don't get in then you will get a full refund minus any DGS servicing fees. Please let me know if that helps or if you have any other questions.

Truc Nguyen    March 8 at 5:22pm

Hi TD's,

Can you move me from MP40 to AM40?
Thank you,
Truc #92142

Ty Tannatt   March 11 at 6:25pm

Hi Truc, I emailed you back but haven't gotten a response. You can change the division yourself, or I can, but I need to know your t-shirt size in order to do so. Thank you.

Truc Nguyen   March 11 at 6:58pm

Thank you for the reply, Can you move me? Also size large T shirt.

Casey Everett    February 11 at 11:48pm

It says Pool C is short tees and Pool D is long tees. Is that right or a mix up?

Eric Dochterman   February 12 at 12:14am

Should be. D is Adv and Open Masters. C is Intermediate to

Ty Tannatt   February 17 at 10:33pm

Hi Casey, sorry for taking so long to respond. Pool C (MA2) is playing all short tees. MA2 has always played the short tees in the Challenge. Pool D is a mixture - (All long tees where applicable for MP40, MP50, MP55, MP60) (All short tees where applicable for all other divisions - FP40, MA40, MA50, MA55, MA60, MA65, FA40, FA50, FA1, and FA2 )

Norbert Sarsfield    January 31 at 2:20pm

When does MA2 registration open? I'm assuming Feb. 11, but MA2 isn't actually listed.

Ty Tannatt   January 31 at 2:38pm

Good call. Updated reg, so MA2 shows for Feb 11th now. Thank you for pointing that out.

Norbert Sarsfield   January 31 at 11:10pm

Great! Thanks for the quick response!

David Bajari    January 24 at 5:31am

Is a Thursday check in mandatory? Thanks!

Ty Tannatt   January 24 at 3:10pm

No. You will need to check in with the course TD on Friday morning.

Danny Daggett    December 28 at 3:53pm

Ty Tannatt   December 28 at 4:19pm

Yes, all amateur divisions will get a player's pack.
