The 3rd phase of registration of the first event of Disc Golf World Tour kicks off tomorrow, but before that we’re proud to announce the first set of wild cards to be dealt out to the top 3 female players in our sport, based on PDGA ratings. These fine athletes are:
- Catrina Allen, PDGA rating 963
- Paige Pierce, PDGA rating 962
- Valarie Jenkins, PDGA rating 961
“These three ladies have been proven fierce competitors over and over again on the PDGA tour. While DGWT operates on “one division, one champion” -ideology, we are certain these ladies have a lot to show even against the very best of male competitors out there.” says DGWT main promoter Jussi Meresmaa. “Disc Golf is a sport equally suitable for both genders, yet male players dominate the statistics when it comes to pretty much all areas participance. Just like we need superstars on the male side to attract new audiences towards the sport, we need similar star players on the women’s side to strengthen the player base by attracting new female players of all ages to the sport.” Meresmaa concludes.
