In honor of the upcoming 2014 PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE), we wanted to cover what is and always has been one of the most successful women-only disc golf events in the country, the Texas Women’s Championship. The WGE already has 1000+ registered women playing in 60+ events all over the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
A popular question in the disc golf world right now is “What does it takes to run a women’s only tournament?” Who better to answer that question than Ed Coffey, Tournament Director for the Texas Women’s Championship? The 2010 TWC, with 98 participants, held the record for most female disc golfers at one event (record based on PDGA sanctioned events) until The Chick Flick in North Plains, Oregon broke the record in 2012 with 102 participants. In addition to that record, Coffey also makes the record books with the 2011 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship he hosted holding the largest attendance to date for a USWDGC with 86 participants.
