The Disc Golf Pro Tour Announces 2022 Schedule

By Baker Helton

The Disc Golf Pro Tour is pleased to release its 2022 Schedule, all events sanctioned as PDGA Elite Series. The schedule includes a total of 15 events; 12 regular-season events, 2 playoff events, plus the DGPT Championship and adds to the previously announced PDGA Major schedule to create a 20 event pro tour for 2022. The Silver Series will return in a similar fashion to the DGPT, with events on the series offering reduced DGPT points and gaining enhanced media coverage. That schedule is planned to be announced on November 1.

The 2022 schedule is similar to the 2021 version. “This process is always challenging, and we prioritized sustainability and simplicity for 2022 as much of our focus went to securing our partnership and merging the tours successfully with the PDGA,” said Jeff Spring, DGPT CEO & Director. “One focus was working backward to Emporia to allow ease of travel to the PDGA Pro Worlds, which has been scheduled on that date for over 10 months. We wanted to make it easy for players to get there.” 

Former National Tour Events, The Master’s Cup, and the Beaver State Fling are set to be on the Silver Series schedule while discussions continue to include the Music City Open. The Delaware Disc Golf Challenge will not be a DGPT event in 2022 as they look to take a year off from elite competition. The DGPT also plans to head to Europe in 2022, after the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the planned debut at the 2021 PCS Sula Open in Norway. Information regarding the European inclusion on the DGPT schedule will be shared when the Silver Series is announced. 

A new addition to the DGPT schedule is a playoff format for the final two events, the Green Mountain Championship, and the MVP Open at Maple Hill. While final details will be announced, these events will stay normal stroke play events but see the field sizes reduced as the Tour blazes a path to the DGPT Championship. “I expect the men’s field to be cut down to around 100 for the GMC and 80 when we get to Maple Hill, and the women’s field to go from 50 to 40.” Said Spring. “This will set the stage for a dramatic weekend in Leicester, MA to determine not only DGPT Points Champions, but the players who will qualify for the Tour Championship.” 

Final details of the new Playoff format changes to the Points Series and updated Tour Standards will be released in the coming months. One change to the Point Series will be the inclusion of the PDGA Majors as points events. “We’re thrilled to include the PDGA majors as heavyweights in the Points Series,” said Spring. “The DGPT standings influence everything on tour, and we are working hard to reformat how all events are weighted to bring a cohesive effort with the PDGA to this new era in disc golf.”
