Tournament Menu

About

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.

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. 

This Major tournament will feature:

  • A brand new sports facility located 15 minutes from downtown Buffalo, NY: Kevin T. Keane Sports Park
  • 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
  • Post-Tournament get together in downtown Buffalo

For the first time since 2019, Discflect World Champions will be crowned.

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.
