The first PDGA Major event of the year is right around the corner as this weekend kicks off the 2014 PDGA Amateur Doubles World Championships! The tournament itself doesn’t start until Saturday but there are plenty of activities in the days leading up to it that make the Amateur Doubles World Championships one of the most unique and entertaining disc golf events of the year.

The 2014 PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships is now open for registration! The event will be hosted on four championship level courses in Mt. Vernon, Texas on April 4th, 5th, and 6th. All four of the courses were designed by John Houck (#1688), including the world’s two top-rated courses: Selah Ranch - Lakeside and Selah Ranch - Creekside. The local business community, along with the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, are looking forward to making this year's event even more memorable for the players. 

The 2013 PDGA Amateur and Junior World Championships in Emporia, Kansas kicked off today with a bang as the Mixed Doubles and Junior Divisional Doubles competition spent a day of fun on the Jones West course. With claim to the first World Championship titles of 2013 on the line competition was stout, battles were fought, and victors were crowned. In the end three teams left saying they were the best in the world.

These rules for doubles play have been approved by the PDGA Rules Committee.

Doubles play comes in a variety of formats. Best Shot, Best Disc (aka Best Score), Alternate Shot, Worst Shot, and Tough Shot are described below. Except where noted, PDGA rules apply.
