If you were to ask a random disc golfer what the biggest Amateur event is, the answer you’d likely get a majority of the time would be “Am Worlds”. In many ways that may be true, but if you’re looking at the number of registered competitors, the correct answer for the past several years would actually be the Amateur Championships at Bowling Green.

The second day of the Bowling Green Amateur Championship was held with beautiful weather and also featured some great golf. So far there have been 19 rounds rated at 1000 or higher and the race in Advanced is exciting to watch. The round of the tournament so far has been Andrew Patton's amazing 48 at Phil Moore Park which gave Andrew a share of the lead at 18 under par. Only two strokes back is Shelby Township's Mitch Sylvain and is the only player so far who has two rounds rated over 1000. The final nine should be exciting tomorrow so please tune in to PDGA.com as we bring you live hole-by-hole scoring.

One of the longest running events in the DGA/PDGA history is the Bowling Green Open, starting in April of 1978 and continuing each year in what has become a favorite destination for disc golf players each spring.
