If you are a disc golf fan, now – or in the future – you probably already know how this story ends. It ends with an Estonian phenom claiming one of the rarest feats in all of sports – a calendar year sweep of all four PDGA Majors. A grand slam.

Up next on the 2023 PDGA Major calendar: the United States Women's Disc Golf Championship.

Nearly 350 players over 24 divisions are currently registered to compete beginning Thursday, September 21 in Burlington, North Carolina.




In one week, the best of the best in disc golf return to Smugglers' Notch in Vermont for the 2023 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships.

The hype is real.

Officially kicking off on Wednesday, August 30, 295 of the best players in the world return to Smuggs, five years after the beloved venue hosted its first PDGA Pro Worlds, and it's bigger than ever.


The best of the best — and the strongest field in the history of the prestigious tournament — has landed in Nokia, Finland for the 2023 European Open presented by Discmania. Many of the top players from the United States traveled to Norway to join the Euro Tour for the PCS Open last week and will now have a chance at a PDGA Major title. The European Open was established in 2006 and has become the premier professional disc golf event in Europe.

The numbers speak for themselves at the 2023 PDGA Amateur & Junior Disc Golf World Championships.

  • 810: Total players — 435 in Am Worlds and 375 in Junior Worlds.
  • 12: Total divisions, from MA1 and FA1 at Am Worlds to MJ8 and FJ8 at Junior Worlds
  • 11: Courses in play in the Peoria, Illinois area
  • 647: Distance of Australian Alex Kynaston’s drive to win the MJ15 distance title

The goal of cap adjustments is to get as many players as possible competing in the division they are registered to compete in.


July 5th – Cap Adjustment, If necessary.

July 19 – Cap Adjustment, if necessary.

August 8th – Official Player ratings for FA1, FA2, FA3 and FA4 are finalized. Cap adjustments due to division changes are possible here and will occur if necessary.

September 1 – Cap adjustment, if necessary.

September 11 – cap adjustment, if necessary

September 15 – Players with division sizes of less than three will be moved to another division they are eligible for. Also, a final cap adjustment, if necessary. No more adjustments will be made.

On Sunday, the top amateurs took to the Toboggan Disc Golf Course one last time for the final round of the 2023 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship.

The 2023 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships started off hot as the top amateurs in the country played their first round on the Toboggan Disc Golf Course in Milford, Michigan. After just one round, two players have already beaten last year’s hot round to get themselves to the top of the leaderboard at the end of day 1.

The most skilled amateurs in the country are headed to Milford, Michigan for the 2023 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships.

This PDGA Amateur Major is one of the best chances for U.S. amateurs to perform at the highest level of competition and get a taste of professional life. Winning the USADGC has jumpstarted the professional careers of players like Benjamin Callaway (2011), Colten Montgomery (2014), Anthony Barela (2015), Gavin Rathbun (2016), Kyle Klein (2019), and Robert Burridge (2021).

Action begins Friday and runs through Sunday.

Twenty-three years ago, Tim Selinske created the U.S. Masters Championships to celebrate sportsmanship and community.

On Sunday in Eugene, Oregon, those two elements were on display.

Championship Sunday of the 2023 PDGA Tim Selinske U.S. Masters Championships presented by Innova featured a little bit of everything — playoff wins, comeback wins, come-from-behind wins and blowout wins. But after those wins, and even the losses, the community aspect was on full display in a record gathering of 422 players.

There was plenty to celebrate.
