The Kansas City Wide Open has returned to the PDGA National Tour lineup. Johnathan Poole has also selected the KC Wide Open as a USDGC Qualifier. That means the top 5 scores in the A Pool will receive an invitation to play in one of the most prestigious events in disc golf, the United States Disc Golf Championships. The KC Wide Open National Tour event includes only the Pro Men (MPO) and Pro Women (FPO) divisions, with a field limit of 80 players.
A-TIER [Age-Protected Pros]
The A-Tier is specifically for Age-Protected Pros only. There will not be any amateur divisions. This field is limited to 64 players.
This year, we are adding a Performance Flight to the KCWO, in lieu of an amateur event. This is open to ANY ONE, male or female, of any skill level, as long as you have an established PDGA Rating. Since a ratings-based formula is used to calculate projected scores, there is a minimum rating allowed of 875. If you are rated below 875 and want to play, you will have to play the event with an 875 calculated score. If you do not have an established rating, you will have to play the event with a 1000-rated projected score. Check out this USDGC article about the performance flight for more details.
