With dew from the grass flying off their shoes, 162 women made their way to the tee pads for the final round of the 2018 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship Sunday in Lansing, Michigan. At the top of the Open Women’s leaderboard was Paige Pierce, and it would remain that way.

Another year, another record broken. 

In 1999, Harold Duvall ran what would be considered the first United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships (1999 Women’s National Championships) in Charlotte, North Carolina, hosting a field of 21 women between two divisions. Now, 19 years later, the number of competitors has grown eight-fold, as 160-plus have made the trek to Lansing, Michigan, for their shot at the national title.

ZÜCA has been a proud supporter of disc golf since entering the market in 2015 by donating funds to support the PDGA Innovation Grant program as well as supporting the PDGA National Tour and signing on to be one of the first sponsors of the Disc Golf Pro Tour. This year, they have extended their support for the sport by becoming a gold sponsor of the bi-annual PDGA Women’s Global Event, happening this Saturday, May 12, 2018.

We're now just 10 days away from the fourth edition of the PDGA Women's Global Event (WGE). On May 12th, more than 1,700 women from 13 countries and 39 states will tee off at their local, satellite WGEs to compete against all women and girls competing in the same division. The accessibility of these virtual, ratings-based PDGA events and the encouraging atmosphere they provide have been essential factors in facilitating the growth of the female disc golfing demographic since the WGE's inaugural event in 2012.

Platinum Sponsors





Mark your calendars, ladies: The PDGA Women’s Global Event is back!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the PDGA is giving back in a big way once again!

Since 2013, the Professional Disc Golf Association has donated $2 for every female that participates in a PDGA-sanctioned event in October to an organization that supports those affected by breast cancer. With the help of over 3,500 female competitors, contributions from Prodigy Discs, the 2014 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship’s raffle and silent auction, and the Magnolia Open, the PDGA has donated a total of $9,098 to support patients and families who have been affected by this disease. 

Under sunny skies once again, the record-setting field of women took to the tees for the final round of the 2017 US Women's Disc Golf Championships in Johnson City, Tennessee. Paige Pierce went into the final round one ahead of Catrina Allen while the many other divisions at the event were dealing with close battles of their own at the top of the leaderboards. 

Division Place Prize
Open Women 1 $2200
Open Women 2 $1500
Open Women 3 $1100
Open Women 4 $875
Open Women 5 $700
Open Women 6 $600

Back-to-back four and a half hour rounds is enough to suck the life right out of anyone, yet the ladies here at the 2017 United States Womens Disc Golf Championships presented by Prodigy Disc finished the day with ease. They may have been a bit tired, but it didn’t stop them from having plenty of fun in the sun at Harmon Hills just outside of Johnson City, Tennessee.
