You are trying to make unified sense out of a whole bunch of disjointed events- you are just going to make your head hurt.

...and on that note- the World Series is not just teams from the USA...

Forget PC crap. She's absolutely beautiful. And I'm sure the ladies think Silver is pretty darn good looking himself. Is there a more attractive couple in disc golf?

Dunno what the ladies think about Paul, maybe he is not on Silver's level but the McBeths are a pretty goodlooking pair.

The actual rule is that you need to fulfill one of the two following conditions to be eligible for the European Disc Golf Championships:

1) Citizenship/Nationality in one of the participating countries
2) Main center of interest in one of the participating countries for at least the last 18 months

These are the minimal requirements. Some countries have more restrictive criteria.

---------------------------------------------
Back to the topic,

I actually don't mind if players from other countries participate in a National Championship, but they shouldn't claim the title. Nate Sexton isn't 2x Canadian Champion in my opinion, but he won that tournament twice. In other words, he can get the $$$, but not the title.

I think the main problem is that the USDGC/USWDGC is a Major. So, you have to keep it open for players from other countries. Based on its current version, I would suggest to rename the USDGC/USWDGC the US Open and create an other tournament to award the US title, that would change its location. But then, I don't know if the best players from the US will play it...

I can't believe people like Paul and GG call themselves Masters Cup winners when they aren't even 40! Damn kids need to get off that lawn.

I promise if an event writes checks as big as these, the name is completely irrelevant. People will play.
