Here's the official schedule. It's part of a letter that has been sent to registered players. Please note that we are now limiting the NT to 72 players, the A-Tier to 144 players, and the B-Tier to 72 players. The registration list at pdga.com is updated as of 4:00 on May 26.

Scheduling Information
There are actually two schedules below: the first includes all events and times and the second shows the disc golfing schedule only, broken down by PDGA Tournament classification and pools and times. Look at the second schedule for which courses you will be playing. Please note and share this information to people who are still considering whether to play or not, that we are now limiting the NT to 72 players, the A-Tier to 144, and the B-Tier to 72. Current registration for each is: NT—54 in, holding spots for 5 players—13 left; A-Tier—125 in, holding a spot of one player—14 left. B-Tier—42 in—30 left.

As you review the playing schedule, A-Tier players please take note that as we move towards our 144 capacity, that we might have to switch up some divisions to make sure that each pool has roughly the same number of players in it.

It a typo, but may want to clarify via email that the final round Sunday is at 8:10 am and not pm

Question:

I was under the impression that round 5 for the NT would be on tee times. Is that not the case? (I saw the approximate time for the top cards but other than that it was unclear.)

As I'm officially an "Out-of-Towner" now, completely stoked to be making the trip up there for this!  8)

Question though, and I'm pretty sure I know the answer but, I'll be traveling up there either Thursday evening or EARLY Friday morning and wanted to make sure that check-in for me to get the players pack and what not would be possible before/at the first round?....giggity...

Cooper,

Tee times were never a consideration after we decided to go with a LOT of golf AND a final 9.

James,

We intend to have players package at the course for those unable to check in on Thursday. If you get there earlier enough (30 minutes or so before the meeting), we should be able to get it to you before the round. After the round, for sure.

Just got word from the Photo Editor at DiscGolfer magazine that they will hold the press for the Wide Open to see if we can come up with a riveting action or emotion-laden photo of the eventual open and/or open women's champions. We have to deliver to the photo by Monday morning. Think cover...vertical orientation. If it makes the cover by itself, they'll pay up to $100. If you're interested and have the equipment to produce a very high-resolution photo, please call me.

Also, does the A or B Tier have to wear collared shirts? or is this just the NT?
Every putt, every time.

A few minor tweaks happened before this went to print, but the grouping and the scheduling is accurate on this information.  Please review as you would.
