10th Annual Marshall Open Players Meeting - Oct 22nd, 2021
Welcome to the Tenth Annual Marshall Open! As always, we’d like to start off by thanking our sponsors.
Our tour sponsors: Elephant & Castle Fine Arms, Innova Champion Discs, Creator Designs, Fossa, Millenium Golf Discs, Discmania, Cyclebar Springfield East, 8Up, Fimco Steel, Discs Unlimited, and Dynamic Discs.
Everyone needs to check in at the pavilion. Also, the PDGA is requiring a signed waiver stating we acknowledge the increased risk of COVID-19 by playing in this tournament. Since you all signed up online, you've already signed that waiver.
Regarding COVID-19, please maintain social distancing at all times before, during, and after the tournament. During check-in, please form three lines, and keep at least 6 feet apart in those lines. Three people at a time will be allowed to check in. There will be water on the course at each shelter house. After the tournament, amateur players receiving a payout will need to form three lines, as three people will be allowed in the trailer at any one time. The voucher must be used that day, unless arrangements are made.
Round 1 tees off at 10. Scores for this tournament will be kept at pdga.com/score. The code is marsh. Round 1 player course and hole assignments will be posted shortly after registration closes Friday night at https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/53075. The staff will automatically receive the scores at tournament central. When round one is finished, the Rotary Club will be selling lunch at the course. Proceeds go to disc golf education at Marshall High School. Round 2 SHOULD start at 2, but may change based on last card. There will be an announcement by DGM staff, and round 2 assignments will be posted on the PDGA page.
Rules for the courses are listed below. Innova CTP is North hole 17. Trilogy-only CTP is South hole 5. All players play from red tees on both courses.
If there is any question about any throws or lies, try to make a group decision. If no decision can be made, play a provisional. When possible, consult with the course TD to determine the correct answer.
Kevin Carder will be the Tournament Director. He can be reached on FB and his number is (417) 439-7283.
