In Wisconsin, we have an active tour that tracks player’s scores for a series of tournaments. The tour provides the “most coveted” black disc for each division’s champion at each tour stop. At the end of the season, trophies are awarded to the state champion and the top participants in each division at our end of the season finale.
There are 2 fees (or funds) that each player incurs while playing at all Wisconsin Disc Golf Tour stops. These extra monies are included in your entry fee for the tournament. First, we have a disc sports development fund that is collected from every player at each stop, this fee is $2. This money is made available for major upgrades on existing courses or installations of new courses here in the state. Second, we have a tour participation fee that pays for trophies and prizes/purse for the season finale. All Pro, Advanced, Intermediate and Recreational divisions pay $1 per tour stop into this fund. Juniors are not required to pay this fee. NEW IN 2014, tour finale registration fees will be set at standard B-Tier levels to further increase the payouts.
In 2014, the Wisconsin Tour tracks points for the following PDGA divisions: Open, Pro Women, Pro Masters, Pro Grand Masters, Advanced Men, Advanced Women, Advanced Masters, Advanced Grand Masters, Intermediate Men, Intermediate Women, Recreational Men, and Juniors 16 and under. If you would like to suggest additional divisions for 2015, talk to your tournament director or a WDSA board member.
Wisconsin Disc Golf Tour Division Champions & Tour Finale
In addition to the PDGA points you will earn on the tour at our stops, you will also earn Wisconsin points for your play on the tour. Participants will be awarded points based on their finish within their division. We award 100 points for first place regardless of the number within the division. Points for the rest of the division will be a percentage of 100. For example if there are 4 players, first gets 100 points, 2nd gets 75 points, 3rd gets 50 points, and 4th 25 points. The intent is to evenly balance out the points awarded at smaller events with the larger attended events. These points you earn from your “best 8″ stops will help determine the divisional state champions for the season as well as who gets invited to the tour finale. This years’ finale will only be a 1 day event so spots in this will be hard to come by. We will only award spots to players based on their finish throughout the season. Make sure and play in as many events as you can to get a spot.
Additional funds may be raised through fundraisers at any stop from the sale of merchandise. Please contribute generously to help make this a great tour that other states will look to as an example of a well-run, fun tour. We do this because we love it. Do not ever forget to keep it fun! For other specifics on any stop, contact the tournament director listed on the official tour calendar.
NEW RULE FOR 2014: Points earned for typical division
The following criteria are required to consider earning tour points outside of a players registered division:
1) The TD must follow current PDGA rules for division placement
2) No option is available to play in his/her typical tour division (ie: no other players registered in the typical division)
3) If one or more players are registered in a division - that division is established and no points are allowed outside that division.
4) If more than one player moves in opposite directions, the player moving up can score points in his typical division but the player moving down receives points in the lower division category. (ie: no mixing points in multiple divisions).
5) If all the players move up OR down they could receive points in their typical division. (example: If 2 grand masters move up to masters, they will be playing for pdga points and prizes in masters. But for the WI tour, we will allow them to play for tour points and the black disc in grandmasters.)
