Doubles Events
Saturday, July 14th - 9AM Mandatory Players Meeting, 10AM Tee Off

Format
The PDGA Worlds Doubles format is designed to ensure that the results accurately reflect a team performance by using both partner’s skills and abilities to contribute to the team’s score. Each partner’s tee shot is also used once on each hole on the course across the two rounds.

Alternate Shot:
•The format for two-thirds of the event is Alternate Shot played on the first six and last six holes of each round.
•The partners trade off each set of six holes for tee off between Round 1 and Round 2.
•Which partner tees off on each hole is designated on the scorecard.

Modified Best Shot:
•The format for the other third of the event is Modified Best Shot on the middle six holes of each round with only one partner teeing off on each hole.
•After a tee-off by the designated partner, both partners throw the next shot and the rest of the hole is completed using regular Best Shot format where the team determines which partner’s lie to throw from.
•Which partner tees off on each hole is designated on the scorecard.

Commentaries

Debbie's Notes:

Mark Huether and I took on Hornet's Nest park in a rather odd format for the World Mixed doubles title. Thankfully this is my home course and Mark is very familiar with it too. However there are many tight fairways and obstacles that anything could happen.

We played two rounds with a mixture of alternating shot and best shot and on one round or the other each of us had to drive. There were many holes that I was nervous about driving on, because if you hit a tree early you are hurting! I shot it straight down the gauntlet hole, hole 15, 16, up 17... I was pleased with all my drives except for 3 & 4. The wind got ahold of both of them and took them into the trees. Mark's drives were real good as well. He parked 17, which isn't easy to do.

We were tied going into the back nine with the Brackels, knowing that Mark was going to be driving, I had complete confidence that we would be victorious. And we were. I won my first World Disc Golf Title!
