The Amateur Long Drive™ (ALD™) Championship Competition

Amateur Long Drive™ (ALD™) seasons run from September 1 through August 31st.  The ALD™ Championship Series consists of multiple long drive tournaments (40+) conducted within leagues across the United States and Canada in conjunction with four (4) Regional Major Qualifiers and an annual World Championship. Each league and Regional Major will have competitors vying for world ranking points to make their way into the ALD™ World Championship at the end of the season.  Players compete each year for an invite to the ALD™ World Championship:

  1. By winning the World Ranking Points-Overall / Championship
  2. By winning a World Ranking Points-Division Championship
  3. By winning a League-Division Championship
  4. By winning a Regional Major-Division Championship (Double Point For Majors)
  5. CPI Picks based on CPI (Competitive Performance Index). (Performance/Events Entered)
  6. Wild Card Picks

 

Divisions / Flights

Amateur Players compete in Male and Female divisions including: Youth 13 & Under; Junior 14 to 17; Open 18 to 44; Senior 45 to 59, Super Senior 60 – 69, and 70+. Military and Adaptive Long Drive divisions are added at Regional Majors and in any league where two or more compete in the same division.

Series / Leagues

Leagues are currently established in North Florida, Western Carolinas, Coastal Carolinas, and Utah-Nevada in the United States, and in Alberta and Ontario in Canada. Each league will perform multiple tournaments during the season. League division champions are invited to the ALD™ World Championship. Any ALD™ Member may enter any ALD™ League or Major event in any country where ALD™ Events are sanctioned. Players accumulate World Ranking Points in Overall, Division, and League / Division categories.

Regional Majors

In addition to league play, competitors may qualify for the World Championship at ALD™ Regional Major Qualifiers. All Majors / Qualifiers pay double points. Majors are placed in areas where leagues are not running to give any competitor an opportunity to play their way to the ALD™ World Championship.
