In early 2014, the PDGA and the World Flying Disc Federation signed a memorandum of understanding to renew cooperation between the organizations in managing and promoting the development of disc golf activities internationally. As a part of the arrangement, both parties agreed to the development of an International Disc Golf Committee. One of the tasks of this committee was to develop a new jointly-sanctioned World Championship Disc Golf event, the format of which will be a national team competition. A “World Cup” for disc golf, so to speak.
The World Championships will be held this year in Kansas City on July 27th to August 1st. This will only be the fourth time in history that the Pro and Am Worlds have been combined and there is a good chance we will see the first disc golf tournament with 1000 players. We hope that you can join us in Kansas City and this article will tell what you need to do to become a part of the event.
The list of players that have been invited to compete have been calculated and a complete list is available below.
