Women's Global Event - May 12, 2012

taken from PDGA's Women's Page

Women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf during their local global event. The scores for the two rounds will be submitted and rated by the PDGA. The round ratings will be added to determine the player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify the event must include two rounds on the same course/layout and also have five players rated 800+ (male or female) to keep the ratings consistent across the competition. The Global Scores will be updated and ranked throughout the day to find our overall Women’s Global Event Champions.

Commentaries

Debbie's Notes:

This was a very unique tournament. About 700 women all over the U.S. & 4 other countries competed on the same day in a global event. This was the largest woman's disc golf event of it's kind. I don't think they were expecting quite so many. In the end 636 women finished in just about every division possible. It was awesome! Victoria and I competed in the local event, Southeastern at Eastway park.

I had been practicing Eastway quite a bit and was shooting near par, so when I shot a 60 the first round I was quite disappointed. Overall it wasn't bad, I was tied for second with Michelle Horn and was only one stroke behind Christine Barker, but Sara Nicholson was right behind us by one stroke. So for the second round we had a pretty tight scoring card.

I played pretty well the second round, nothing lights out golf, but well. I left a few out there. We started on hole 1. I knew what my score was, because I kept my own score. Casey was our scorekeeper this round since she hurt her back and was no longer playing. I could tell after hole 16, where we all took 4s (which was a huge improvement for some of the gals over round 1's hole 16) that something was different. We all drove on hole 17, for me a flick of the destroyer. The pin is right on the edge of a cliff, which I threw off of round 1 - not good. I landed in the same place I did round one. This time I knew I was going to lay it up and get my 3 and move on to hole 18. I was the closest one to the pin, so it surprised me when Sara went for the putt. She was in the woods on the other side of the fairway and nearly made the putt. Thankfully, she hit the cage and her disc landed up near the basket and not down the hill. I thought, she's chasing someone... Then upshots Christine, she even asks Sara should she go for it. She's chasing someone too... Michelle had driven past the basket and had no real choice but to lay up. So we all took a 3 on hole 17. On to the last hole... again I did not know the score, which was probably a good thing. I simply got up there and shot my destroyer down the path, it faded and skipped where it always does. Again I was closest to the pin, so I approached last. Christine & Sara approach fine, but Michelle unfortuately looked like she was going for a really long putt and got tangled up in the branches of the really big tree in the middle of the fairway. I flicked my purple buzz up and putted out. Christine and Sara both had 3s and Michelle took a 4. I did not realize until we added up the scores that going into the last two holes I was in lead by 1 shot and there was a three way tie for second. Because of the 4 on 18 Michelle dropped to 4th. I won the local global event by 1 shot over a VERY good Christine & Sara. I kept my cool and played my game. It was a very tense and hard fought battle that last round. I had shot a 59 that last round.

It was thrilling to have won the local tournament. That night Bob, the kids and I went out for dinner to celebrate the win and for Mother's Day, because I was due up for another tournament the next day - big surprise! heehee. When we got home that night, Bob tells me that I should look at the global standings. Okay... like I have a chance globally... Holy Cow... I was ranked #1. Now not all the events had not reported, but wow #1... really?!? It took until Wednesday night before they made it official, but I ranked #1 of 101 advanced women who competed in the Woman's Global Event. WOW!!! I must say that was way too emotional watching and refreshing the results page for 4 days. I can laugh about it now, but I was about to pull my hair out during those 4 days! And Victoria came in 3 or 6 globally! She's so awesome too!

Check out this ROI - $15 to be in the tournament... in the player's pack got a champion mamba, discraft cyclone, visor, custom mini, tote (valued ~ $50), won CTP for round 2 - IDGC t-shirt & putter (valued ~ $25), won a round of ring of fire - Spikehyzer golf umbrella (valued ~ $25), local trophy, disc-diva metal bag tag boasting #1 (only the top three of each division got one of these), pair of Keen hiking boots ($170), Grip Equipment bag ($200), PDGA voucher ($50) --- WOW!!!! I won $520 worth of stuff for only $15! I would have to say I had a good day of golf. heehee.

Victoria's Notes:

At Eastway Park, there was the Women's Global Event. I played with Diane and Tracy. I shot a 90 on the 1st round and a 93 on the 2nd round. I was the only junior there.

Debbie made a ring-of-fire and gave out presents. Sarah ran this tournament.

We started on hole #1 the first round and hole #2 the second round. We had a good time on Saturday.
