Meet the New Face behind The United States Amateur Match Play Championship: Scott Reek

At Dynamic Discs, we love match play because anything can happen. Players with lower ratings can beat higher-rated players, and the damage from taking a big number on a hole can be limited to just that hole, as it only counts as one hole lost. Each hole in match play is almost like a new match or a new opportunity to compete. The United States Amateur Match Play Championships has brought disc golf match play to the national stage, and today, we're excited to announce that Scott Reek will be taking over the leadership for the USAMPC moving forward!

Scott is no stranger to the disc golf tournament scene, as he has played in over 220 PDGA tournaments, but he brings a wealth of Tournament Director knowledge as well, having directed over 140 PDGA tournaments. Scott's passion for running events is evident as he has run events like the PDGA Masters World Championships, Midwest Amateur Championships, and the Kansas City Wide Open. Reek began playing disc golf in the mid-1990s and ran the Kansas Disc Golf Association before joining the Air Force in 2003. Before moving back to Kansas City, Reek was the President of the Appleton Area Disc Golf Club in Wisconsin, which is one of the most densely populated disc golf scenes. Upon returning to Kansas, Scott took the reins as President of the Kansas City Flying Disc Club. Scott also has history with Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside Discs, as he served as General Manager of the Dynamic Discs Kansas City retail store and is a sponsored player for Latitude 64.

Doug Bjerkaas, the Events Director for Dynamic Discs, is thrilled to bring Scott on board for these events. "The USAMPC is positioned for a ton of growth as Scott Reek takes charge of both the spring and fall editions of the event in 2020! Scott has a great deal of TD experience. He also has the added experience of running local and state match play brackets each of the last two years. He is passionate about match play and has already shared with me some exciting changes to be implemented next year," Bjerkaas shared.

We can't wait to hear about some of the changes and improvements that Scott will make to the USAMPC, and we're thrilled to see it grow. Please join us in welcoming Scott Reek to the Dynamic Discs family!
