Hopefully by now you have made it out to some of the fun EDGA organized events that have taken place thus far. EDGA would like to invite you out to another newly scheduled event. On the Sunday of July 27 we will be hosting The Match Play Mixer!
This event is a much different format than what you are used to. It is a head to head modified double elimination tournament. How it works is, you are placed on the bracket against random opponents and you play a shortened round of disc golf. Points are earned in each match by getting the lowest score on each hole. The winner is decided by who has the most points at the end of the shortened round. There are no carry overs and strokes only matter per hole.
The modified double elimination means that if you lose twice you are out and if you make it to the third round and beyond losing also means you’re out even if you have not lost once (this is for time reasons, it dragged on far too long in previous years with straight up double elimination). It will be split up by league tiers (dependant on player attendance) if not enough players to have separate pools then it will be one pool mixed up.
It will cost $15 with a $5 ace pot that is only active the first two rounds as that is the only time all players are still active in the tournament. If no ace is made then a CTP for the ace pot will be held. It’s a lot of fun and adds a more strategic element to the already addicting game of disc golf.
Hope to see you all out July 27th!
