My guess is that he is saying that the Champion's Cup is the PDGA's event. Like Worlds, the PDGA runs it. Unlike DGPT events, or, for example, the USDGC which is Innova's event.

Yes, they can. I've been able to get caddies when I am out of town just by offering a few brand new discs. Since all the DGPT players could do the same, I think they can
