More Hot Dogs!
Am Worlds Regulation Competition is completed –
At the 2011 PDGA Amateur and Junior World Championships, each division has now completed six rounds of play (except Legends who have completed four rounds – one per day.) This marks the end of regulation competition and tomorrow will start off with the semi-finals for those Advanced divisions with more than 16 competitors, and then Finals for all divisions.
Semi finals action will range from divisions where the only battles are for runner-up positions, to those divisions where there are some heated battles going on for the lead.
Like today, there will be plenty of live scoring available on-line starting at 8AM EDST so spectators who couldn’t make it to Rochester can get in on the action from home. Be sure to point your browser at www.pdga.com and click on the dark red Live Scoring button on the upper right of the home page.
