On a wet and cold Sunday morning, the women at the United States Womens Disc Golf Championships ventured out into the mist for the final round of the tournament and for some, the last round of the season. The arduous journey that is the National Tour can be tough on the body and mind, but its events like these that get marked on the calendar year after year, even though it is late in the season. There is a different feeling about this event.
As day two began at the 2013 United States Womens Disc Golf Championships, the autumn showers that are typical in the Northwest finally began, and umbrellas littered the courses in Portland, OR. The pools switched courses for today, as the Professional divisions played two rounds across the rolling hills and under the towering firs of Pier Park, and the Lady Amateurs went off in tee times, and were challenged by the length of the track at Blue Lake Regional Park for their only round of the day. The rain proved to be difficult for most, and the scores reflect the unfavorable playing conditions.
On September 20-22, the women of Disc Golf will travel out to Portland, Oregon to compete in the United States Womens Disc Golf Championships. Portland is currently home to the "Chick Flick," annually one of the nation's largest women-only events. Tournament Director and PDGA Board President Rebecca Duffy and her tournament team are extremely excited about hosting the best female players in disc golf. For the players, this is one of the biggest and best events of the year. A National Champion will be crowned in several different amateur and pro divisions.
