2014 Japan Open Press Release

RETURN OF THE JAPAN OPEN DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP

Nasu Shibara, Tochigi, Japan. June 5th~7th, 2014

Hero Disc Golf in association with Innova Champion Discs, Keen Shoes and the Japanese Professional Disc Golf Association (JPDGA) are proud to announce the return of the Japan Open Disc Golf Championship to the PDGA tour. Dating back to 1985, this year’s event represents the 14th Japan Open. The 2012 Japan Open was cancelled due to the tragic aftermath of the 2011 Tsunami.

Japan Open Championship is one of the most prized and coveted experiences on the PDGA tour by player and spectator alike. Tournament Director Kozo Shimbo and Innova President Dave Dunipace are bringing new surprises to this year’s event by transforming the Robert Trent Jones designed ball golf course at the Nasu Highlands into two 18-hole disc golf courses. A maximum of 144 competitors have registered making it the largest in Japan Open history.

The events will open on June 1st with several days of practice on the two courses for competitors. On June 4th, the opening ceremonies will be held at the resort with competition beginning on June 5th and concluding on June 7th. Each competitor will play both courses and compete for ¥4,000,000 in prize money.
