  • PDGA Event Record For One Weekend

    Just noticed there are 42ish events on the schedule for this weekend.

    Anyone know what the record for sanctioned events in a weekend is?

      My guess would be the Worlds Biggest Weekend that tops the list.

        Except that's not PDGA I don't think...
        “I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.”

              Good point. I wonder how many there were during the first global event. I'd look it up, but don't recall the date. Seems it was July or Aug a couple of years ago????

                    Wouldn't surprise me if the Women's Global event produced the weekend with the highest number of sanctioned events ever. The Global last August only had 15 events that participated versus 41 for the Women.

                      The WGE was a great event to be a part of, for sure

                          Very interesting. Thinking the weekend, monthly, quarterly etc. statistics would be a pretty good indicator of sport growth. Total volume of participants for each would also be interesting to trend over time.

                            I think there are too many variables. Weather by region, clinics in weeks before sanctioned events, stores starting to carry selections of plastic, new course installs, and I am sure there are more that could seriously impact the numbers.

                              PDGA obviously tracks and updates the number of events by tier level at each of their ~monthly board meetings. They track the number of events as the number per year to date and compare to last year at the same time. A little summary table is inlcuded in most of the meeting minutes like this last one.

                              No data there with respect to number of participants though.
