5147 0

Ask any touring pro to name the most prestigious events in disc golf and chances are the United States Disc Golf Championship (USDGC) will be on that list. Part of the allure is the qualifying process. Athletes compete throughout the season at specific events where they have the opportunity to earn an invitation to the USDGC, October 7-10, 2020—we call it The Road to the Championship.

For 2020, the list of qualifying events are diverse—six of the events are outside the U.S.—including Disc Golf Pro Tour, PDGA National Tour and Major events.
