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.”
