How many players does my tournament need to qualify as a WGE? (Tournament Directors)
You will need a minimum of one female playing in a female division and a minimum of two players (female or male) who are ratings propagators playing on the same course layout during both rounds. For the rounds to qualify for the WGE, the rounds must be the first two rounds of the event on May 8 or 9 and must be played on the same course and layout each round. Propagators are PDGA Members rated 700+ with a minimum of eight officially rated rounds. Ratings propagators are required to calculate the ratings for the two rounds included in the WGE.
You can tell which players in your tournament are ratings propagator by checking to see if their player rating is bold on your individual tournament results page. In the example below, only Mark is a ratings propagator so his player rating is in bold. William and Thomas are not propagators because they do not have a minimum of 8 officially rated rounds. Rudolph isn't current so he cannot be counted on as a ratings propagator.
