The First State Flippers crew is excited to announce that the 2020 Delaware Tour Championship is back on, just in a condensed COVID version. For all the details please read below!!!
For starters, sanctioned IFPA events will not resume in 2020, therefore we have decided to move forward with our 2020 Delaware Tour Championship, in a more condensed version due to the COVID guidelines and restrictions.
YES, we will be awarding the winner of the 2020 DE Tour Championship another 6 foot trophy!!!
YES, we will be having a prize fund of over $1200 for the DE Tour Championship with the overall winner guaranteed at least $600!!!
Here are all the details. We will be holding 3 qualifying events over the next 3 months which will give you the opportunity to earn “Tour Championship Points” based on your overall finish at the qualifying events. Each qualifier will be capped at 28 players. Each qualifier will use the Group Match Play format for qualifying, with the top 8 advancing to a modified PAPA Finals. After all 3 events are complete, the top 16 players based on total “Tour Championship Points” will receive an automatic entry into the Delaware Tour Championship finale.
ALL EVENTS ARE TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED TO BE HELD AT JOE FOX’S HOUSE IN MIDDLETOWN DELAWARE, BUT COULD BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
