USDGC Celebrates 25th Anniversary

The United States Disc Golf Championship is reaching a milestone in 2023 – 25 consecutive years of life-changing victories and heartbreaking losses played on the hallowed grounds of the Winthrop Arena. This year we plan to celebrate that anniversary with the most professional, best-attended, and most fun event in Rock Hill history. But the Road to the Championship starts long before the tournaments in October.

Below is the list of qualifying events and qualified athletes for the 2023 USDGC and TPWDG. To keep up with the recent surge of global talent in disc golf, we have more international qualifiers in 2023 than any year prior.
