After a moving day plagued by severe thunderstorms, weather delays, and eventually round cancellations, the 2019 PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships still managed to come to an exciting conclusion on Sunday. The top two teams in the Advanced division kept it close after each round -- so close that by the end of the fourth round they would be forced into a sudden-death playoff.

After days of downpour left staff and volunteers alike wondering if the courses would be playable, the 2019 PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships began its 29th running on Friday morning without issue. 110 teams made the trek to the small town of Mt. Vernon, Texas to take on four championship-level HouckDesign courses all while playing multiple formats of doubles disc golf.
There are still several spots available for the 2019 PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships in Mt. Vernon, TX. The event takes place April 11th-14th and features four beautiful, world-class, championship courses housed at the renowned Selah Ranch and Trey Texas Ranch.
