The 2023 PDGA Champions Cup is the first of the 4 Majors in the PDGA world. It is the second annual Champions Cup at the IDGC. Here are some things you need to know about this exciting tournament.

  • The 2023 PDGA Champions Cup will take place from April 20 to 23 at the International Disc Golf Center in Appling, GA. The event will use, the heavily wooded, W.R. Jackson course which has been modified to create a grandstand finish on hole 18.
  • The tournament is a standard four rounds of stroke play all done at WR Jackson.

  • This morning, the Champions Cup had Monday qualifying round for players who did not register in time and slacked on their registration duties earlier in the season. The top eight players from MPO and top 4 from the FPO division in the qualifying round earned a spot in the main field. The winners of the Waiting List Open were: Conrad, Fry, Gossage, Perkins, Dollar, Horst, Barham, & Presnell in MPO and Weese, Saarinen, Beech, & Childs in the FPO division.

My Picks

At the Champions Cup, I had a clear strategy for selecting players who perform exceptionally well on wooded courses. This led me to choose three players: Sarah Hokom for the FPO division, Connor “Oh Oh Oh O’Reilly” and Michael Johansen for the MPO division. However, after reviewing my remaining budget, I realized I had room for a top-notch MPO player, and selecting Paul McBeth was a no-brainer for me. As for my final MPO pick, I confidently went with Corey Ellis who performed well here last year and is due for a breakout event.

With just 938 points left in my budget for the FPO division, I needed to make a wise decision. So, why not choose a former FPO World Champion like Paige Shue? I felt that this was the perfect way to round out my team, and I couldn’t be happier with my final selections. By considering each athlete’s unique strengths and experience, I believe I have assembled a squad that will excel at the challenging WR Jackson course of the Champions Cup.
