The PDGA Majors Committee has announced invitation criteria for the 2023 PDGA Champions Cup ahead of the first Elite Series event of 2022.

The criteria, which remains largely the same as the inaugural edition, was designed to honor the champions from disc golf’s premier professional and amateur events.

Invitations to the 2023 edition will be awarded to the MPO and FPO winners from all 15 DGPT Elite Series events, seven Euro Tour Events, four PDGA Majors and a handful of National Championships including Canadian Nationals, the Australian Disc Golf Championship, the Japan National Championship and the New Zealand National Championship.

Invitations will also be awarded to the top-5 finishers from both MPO and FPO at the 2022 Champions Cup as well as amateur champions in the FA1 and MA1 divisions at Am Worlds, USWDGC, USADGC and the NADGT Championship.

The 2021 Australian Disc Golf Championship, which was originally slated to be a qualifying event for the 2022 PDGA Champions Cup, was postponed until February 2022 and will now serve as a qualifier for the 2023 PDGA Champions Cup.

The Majors Committee may, at its discretion, continue to add more qualifying events throughout the 2022 season, and may reserve invites for international players not otherwise qualified (up to five each, MPO and FPO).

Any remaining spots will be filled using a tiered registration system based on PDGA Player Ratings.
