IAO Moves 10-Player Teams to 7-player

The Diablo International Amateur Open presented by Dick's Sporting Goods announces that the 10-player division has been replaced by a 7-player format. 

According to Debra Dion Krischke, producer of the event, " We surveyed our 10-player teams from the past two years and 90% of them were in favor of the reduction. This year's event is all about change so it seemed a good time to make the transition." 

This move is seen as being the wave of the future. Europe has already made the transition.  7-player teams are much more spectator and media friendly without compromising the two flag format which many players enjoy. Teams should see a 30% savings in the overall cost of a team to travel, practice and attend events throughout the year. It's much easier for a team captain to maintain a full roster and manage a smaller team..  The cost burden to sponsors of supporting a team would also be lessened. 

The IAO will offer an amateur and novice division in 7-player format. In addition, 5-player competition will be available offering rookie, novice, and amateur divisions. Three player offers an Amateur, Young Guns and a new Women's division.
