Twelve players are back to defend their title and the star power overall has risen as the 2022 PDGA Tim Selinske U.S. Masters Disc Golf Championships kick off Thursday in the Quad Cities, Iowa.

Former champions and a few newcomers highlight the 12th running of the PDGA Major that honors the late Tim Selinske.

In MP40, Brad Schick is back to defend his title, but 2022 PDGA Masters World Champion Joe Rovere and Patrick Brown, the defending MP50 champion, join the mix. Christian Diertrich and Tyler Horne are among the highest-rated players in the field.

Jen Allen picked up her first PDGA Major title a year ago in Missouri, outlasting Des Reading (FP50 this year) in a playoff. Ohn Scoggins is here after finishing 7th just a few days ago at the 2022 PDGA Professional World Championships.

The newcomer of the bunch in the FP40 field: Sarah Hokom.

Barrett White took down the USWDGC title earlier this year and is back to defend her title in FP50 in a field that includes Juliana Korver, Reading and 2022 PDGA Masters World Champion Nova Politte.
