The Memorial Championship, presented by Discraft and the Professional Disc Golf Association, is finally here, offering four days of professional and amateur disc golf action from today, Feb. 26, through Saturday, March 1.

The event will be hosted out of the Fountain Park disc golf course, as well as Vista del Camino in Scottsdale. The park will be open to spectators and regular pedestrians, though paths around the park will be altered and visitors are asked to be considerate of the players.

As in years past, this event will kick off the PDGA 2014 season, offering a purse of more than $50,000 and bringing in athletes from all over the world.

In total, 220 professional disc golfers will be joined by another 220 amateurs throughout the four-day event. There will also be numerous vendors on hand, selling discs, gear and more.

For those wanting to take in the most heated part of the action, the final round for the pros will begin at noon Saturday, March 1, at Fountain Park. Admission to this event, as always, is free.
