Below are a couple paragraphs from Harold Duval to all state coordinators concerning the state rep spots for this years USDGC. If you are not familiar with what is happening with this years USDGC go to http://www.usdgc.com/wp-content/uploads ... ifying.pdf for more info.



"We are encouraging PDGA State Coordinators to choose an event in their state that will determine the USDGC Rep. Ideally the event you select will boast a large field with many different divisions. The bigger the better. Each 850+ rated player whose division plays the same course, pin and tee placements, and rotation, is eligible to earn the privilege to represent your state.


State qualifiers are not required to use this new format. If you do, the USDGC will make it as simple as possible to implement the performance aspect in an existing event. Once the event is over, your results will run through our performance-based calculations to determine which player receives the State Rep invitation. Should the winning player be unable to attend, you may invite the next highest finisher until a selection is made".


With that in mind, I have decided to use the Riverside Drive event to determine this years Ohio Representative. Riverside Drive is a PDGA B-Tier event at Griggs Reservoir, Columbus April 16th-AMS, April 17th-PROS.The event could potentially cap out at 200 people(100 ams/100 pros) and everyone will play same format and tees. For more info on the event go to columbusdiscgolf.com, or contact me.
Thank you,
Paul Jay- Ohio PDGA State Representative

I'm very new to this sport and certainly have never, nor will I ever, qualify for any event like this, but can I ask why the Ohio State Champion is being determined at a "lesser" course. I've never played this course, but I do trust discgolfcoursereview.com...it's for the people and by the people... Griggs is rated a 3.04 (26 reviews) and Idlewild is rated a 4.79 (100 reviews) so why not Idlewild? Or even Lincoln Ridge (4.49-58 reviews)? I'm just asking....feel free to tell me I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm just asking. Look forward to understanding this better. Thanks guys/gals.

Columbus is the idea place because it's smack dead center of the state, we have as many clubs to the north of Columbus as we do to the south so it makes sense to put it in the middle of the state. It will be interesting to see where KY is, I'm not even sure who their state coordinator is right now. I think Louisville or E-Town would make the most sense for KY.

Lmao, the course has beeen changed and it is tougher. It doesn't matter what kind of course you play on, if you use the handicap system it will work out on any course. .   I sorta trust DGcoursereview but, too many homies can make an awful course look good and I've seen quite a few bad ratings on good courses because 'it was too hard'.

The Kentucky qualifier is at the SOKY championships (BG + Holler in the Hills).  So it's not exactly in the middle of the state (the geographic middle is near Lebanon, KY btw).

I've actually never played Griggs but it sounds like a good time.

Lots of good side arm holes at Griggs, you'd probably like it Mark. It is certainly harder with the new pins, but still a fairly easy course. The tournament splits the ams and pros into two days. So from that perspective, it is a good choice for the Ohio State Championships since more pros can compete.

Yeah, that's pretty stupid of me to name a couple courses in KY. Was just thinking of the area I guess (plenty of good courses in Cincinnati too). Anyway, thanks for clarifying.
