Greater Milwaukee Open

Disc Golf Guy Broadcasts More Qualifiers in Wisc.

The United States Disc Golf Championship is something you just have to experience to understand, says Greater Milwaukee Open tournament director Terry Miller. And, after the A-tier tournament in Milwaukee, Wisc., 10 more disc golfers, many of whom have never set foot on Winthrop Gold, will get a chance to see it all.

Leading the way with eight strokes below his projected for the May 21-22 tournament was intermediate Brandon Burbach, 23, of Sussex, Wisc. The 866-rated Burbach, who wasn't familiar with The Championship until this year, is all about it now.

The Greater Milwaukee Open is not just another A-Tier event, and not just another stop on the Wisconsin Disc Golf Tour. The GMO is one of only ten USDGC Qualifiers and is also a qualifier for the Amateur National Championships. 

“Milwaukee County Parks are very supportive of disc golf and are glad to play host to such a large tournament,” said seasoned tournament director Terry Miller.  “Maybe disc golf is just one of the reasons why they are a National Gold Medal Winner for Parks Departments.”
