Proposals to host a 2024 PDGA Major will be accepted from July 5 through November 1, 2022.
This includes the PDGA United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship, the PDGA Tim Selinske U.S. Masters Championship, the PDGA Junior Disc Golf World Championships, the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships, the PDGA Masters Disc Golf World Championships, and the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships.
Gossage — the underdog, the Cinderella Story, the improbable, whatever you want to call it — has strung together four consistent rounds of ice-cold disc golf to enter the final lap through the Emporia Country Club with a three-stroke lead with his first PDGA Major and largest career win by far squarely in his sights.
And the rest of the best players to play the sport are right there chasing them.
Completing a stellar feat, Colorado’s Tristan Tanner has emerged from the B Pool in Emporia, Kansas and has made the jump to the very top. His fellow statesman, Aaron Gossage, shares the title of co-leader after putting together two solid rounds to start Pro Worlds.
A marathon turned into a sprint on Tuesday as 286 of the top players in the world hit the courses in Emporia, Kansas to kick off the 40th edition of the PDGA World Championships and the action, as it's been throughout the 2022 season, was fast and furious.
Moments have defined the history of the Pro Worlds.
We'll all remember the one from 2021, a clip that we've see time and time again and will likely see replayed for the foreseeable future, but that one is just the latest in a 40-year history of Pro Worlds.

Day two of the 2022 European Open is in the books, and there was seemingly as many storylines to follow as there were rays of sunshine beaming down on the packed spectator's gallery.
Coming into round two, Kat Mertsch was hanging onto her first career Major lead, separating herself from three different nationalities represented on the lead card, all tied up a single stroke behind her pace-setting opening day performance. Those being Catrina Allen (US), Keiti Tate (EST) and Heidi Laine (FI).

After three long years in which the world has battled a pandemic and disc golf has experienced massive growth, a PDGA Major finally returns to the international stage for the 2022 European Open presented by Discmania.
The long-awaited return to Finland and the beloved and revered Beast course at Nokia DiscGolfPark in Nokia begins Thursday and runs through Sunday, when two PDGA Major champions will be crowned.
It’s the 10th running of the European Open, which began as a PDGA Major in 2006.
On Tuesday when the tournament officially kicked off, McCray, who is returning to PDGA Major action for the first time since suffering a heart attack in February, put on the game face and went to work.
“When I woke up this morning, I could not get the thought of me winning out of my head and I was trying so hard to calm my mind,” King said. “I just had a feeling when I woke up that I was going to take it down.”
The 2022 United States Women's Disc Golf Championship was full of numbers.
Hailey King took down her first PDGA Major title. Jennifer Allen won her second Major and 150th career win. In her 400th event, Barrett White won her 10th Major and sixth USWDGC crown. Pam Reineke and Sandy Gast, the 1992 Co-PDGA Rookies of the Year, won their combined 13th Majors. Two sisters — Therese Cuevas and Athena Cuevas — are now Major champions.
“I’ll definitely be nervous because I’m always nervous – that’s nothing new,” said Emily Yale, the leader in FA1. “I’m glad I’m doing well and hope that I show up tomorrow and play well, focus on my shots, and have a great time with the same card.
At the midway point of the 24th running of the USWDGC, these five take the title of leader into the final two rounds in Madison, Wisconsin. For the remaining 14 divisions, the leaderboard is tight, and the rest of the field is there, ready to charge.
At its core, the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship is a celebration of women’s disc golf, a tournament where girls and women from every corner of the planet gather to compete and, most importantly, find community.
It’s going to be a party in Madison, Wisconsin.
A record 320 women across 19 divisions kick off the 24th annual USWDGC on Thursday with a chance to grow the game, meet new friends and compete for a PDGA Major title.
The numbers continue to be staggering and highlight the growth of women playing and competing on the disc golf course.
