For over 30 years, there has been a World Championship tournament in the sport of discflect each year. In the early years, this tournament was invitational only, but has been open invite since 1999. The best teams in the sport compete for the coveted golden “Hammer” trophy. Click here for a list of prior World Champions.

In 2020, the tournament was canceled due to COVID-19 and in 2021, the sport was rebranded as discflect with PDFA (Professional Discflect Association) as the governing body for the sport.

Albeit under a different name, PDFA has brought this tournament to life since 2007, and is excited to announce that the 22nd Annual Discflect World Championship is back on August 6th, 2022!

What's new in 2022

PDFA is proud to partner with Gatekeeper Media. They produce high quality professional disc golf videos, and will provide video coverage for the 2022 PDFA Discflect World Championship which will be showcased later this year.

  • Two divisions: Pro and Amateur
  • Cash payouts for top Pro teams
  • Trophies for both divisions
  • Friday night meet-up and practice session at Delaware Park

Divisions for 2022 World Championship


This division is for intermediate teams, but beginners and those new to the sport are welcome to join. These teams average 0 to 3.49 points per round (PPR). This is the equivalent of 13+ total throws or 7+ rounds to get to 21 points.


This division is for consistent and competitive teams. These teams average 3.50 to 6.00 points per round (PPR). This is the equivalent of 7-12 total throws or 4-6 rounds to get to 21 points.

Not sure which division to join?

Get a partner, set up some goals, and simulate a game to 21 points. Have one person track your points and the other track the number of throws. If a Win Shot is thrown, count it as two points for purposes of this practice. Try multiple times in different weather conditions and see what your team average is for number of throws:

Amateur: 13 or more throws
Professional: 7-12 throws
