On September 24-26 the women of Disc Golf will travel down to Jacksonville, North Carolina to compete in the 12th Annual United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships.  For the Women, this is where the National Tour will make its final stop.  A National Champion will be crowned in several different amateur and pro divisions.  In the Open field, Sarah Stanhope is fresh off her World Championship, and hopes to defend her USWDGC title that she won last year in Quad Cities, Iowa.  But, the competition will be fierce with former National and World Champions such as Elaine King, Des Reading, and Valarie Jenkins, and a field of other World Class disc golfers seeking a PDGA Major title, Sarah will have her work cut out for her.

Georgia and South Carolina getting serious about women disc golfers.

Sarah has now won the event two years in a row and is coming off a recent 2010 Professional Disc Golf World Championships win in Crown Point, IN. Based on the strength of a 997-rated final round of 63, Sarah cruised to a 5-throw margin of victory. Way to go, Sarah!
