Below are a couple paragraphs from Harold Duval to all state coordinators concerning the state rep spots for this years USDGC. If you are not familiar with what is happening with this years USDGC go to for more info.

"We are encouraging PDGA State Coordinators to choose an event in their state that will determine the USDGC Rep. Ideally the event you select will boast a large field with many different divisions. The bigger the better. Each 850+ rated player whose division plays the same course, pin and tee placements, and rotation, is eligible to earn the privilege to represent your state.

State qualifiers are not required to use this new format. If you do, the USDGC will make it as simple as possible to implement the performance aspect in an existing event. Once the event is over, your results will run through our performance-based calculations to determine which player receives the State Rep invitation. Should the winning player be unable to attend, you may invite the next highest finisher until a selection is made".

With that in mind, I have decided to use the Riverside Drive event to determine this years Ohio Representative. Riverside Drive is a PDGA B-Tier event at Griggs Reservoir, Columbus April 16th-AMS, April 17th-PROS.The event could potentially cap out at 200 people(100 ams/100 pros) and everyone will play same format and tees. For more info on the event go to, or contact me.
Thank you,
Paul Jay- Ohio PDGA State Representative
