The 2019 US Amateur Match Play Championships - Here's What You Need To Know

The Dynamic Discs and Latitude 64 family is excited to bring you another year of awesome competition across the nation with the United States Amateur Match Play Championships. We had such a great turnout over the course of 2018 and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. By partnering with UDisc, we’re able to help facilitate both singles and doubles matches across the US and culminate the event in Emporia to crown a winner.

If you’re new to the USAMPC, we’re here to give you a rundown on how you can play, how you can host your own event, and update you on some exciting changes for this year!

Hosting A Bracket

Individuals who are interested in running an event in their area can apply to host a bracket. Once your application has been accepted, you can begin to promote your bracket and get up to 16 players registered. We make it easy by offering a complete TD package and have added an extra bonus this year - local and state TDs have the option to purchase up to 16 unreleased Latitude 64 Moonshine Keystones at $10 a piece.

So much of the success of these brackets comes from the individual TDs, so making sure you have the time and organizational skills to host multiple matches is key. You have the option of fitting everything into one weekend or can stretch it out over the course of one month. Managing sign-ups is even easier now as players can register directly on UDisc as well.

Your Chance To Win

 There is an amazing wealth of disc golf talent across the United States, and the USAMPC gives players the opportunity to really show their stuff. As an added incentive to put your all into these events, we’ve made some changes on the player side for 2019. Now, competitors who win their local bracket but do not win their state bracket will have the opportunity to come to Emporia! State bracket winners now walk away with double the winnings with $1,000 in DD store credit instead of $500 cash like last year.

Keep in mind that the spirit of this system is to encourage and promote the amateur players in our sport, so you must have a rating of 969 or below to be eligible. Players without a PDGA number or ones with expired memberships are still eligible as well. As bracket applications begin to get approved, you’ll soon start to see a list of places where you can compete. Some players prefer to stay close to home initially while others are so excited that they’ll travel across their state just to play!

There is a lot more information related to the United States Amateur Match Play Championships, so for a complete list of rules, FAQs, and more tidbits of data, visit We can’t wait to see who comes away as the winner this year - remember, they’ll receive the baskets and tee signs for an eighteen-hole disc golf course and $6,000 worth of discs and apparel at the Dynamic Discs Retail store!
