An AM accepting merch as a pay-out for open doesn't effect the purse for open.. In fact I'm sure it makes the sponsoring company more money.. Right? am I reading your posts correctly Josse & Tank?

Why pay the extra $$ to become a Professional PDGA card carrying member?

and what actually happens when you reclassify in a season? slightly more complicated

You'll still be able to play AM in A, B, and C tier tourneys IF you are in the rating cap (< 970), but you wont be invited to any AM majors. You can always classify back to an amateur next year, or pay the full Pro membership cost.

But this is unsanctioned.. so make $$$ saaaan.

The problem is not with the bottom end of Disc Golfers. Disc Golf will always have the appeal of being a very inexpensive sporting activity that one can get into at any age. You don't have to carry an elaborate bag, tons of discs or wear all the DG schwag --- But we do, and we freaking love it! However there are still many many people out there that play DG as a recreational healthy sport. That dynamic wont change. There will still be free parks donning baskets with amateur to pro setups.

I hope we do eventually get to see pay to play courses. but...thats another subject.

Vibram Steve has great points. The top end of disc golf isn't sustainable with the current model. Its complicated though, we need people other than disc golfers to be interested in the sport. conversely, Disc Golf NEEDS professional golfers. This drives companies and clubs to build and design new gear, technology,courses, etc. --- this is the part of Disc Golf that is fascinating to me.  You can tell we're growing astronomically just from the different molds of drivers we're seen in the last 6 years... or all the new bag companies popping up.. or the PDGA #'s increasing at a rapid pace

It's a great time to be apart of Disc Golf. We cant contain it, we can just help mold where its going.  let's all work together and grow the sport!

See, I like the PDGA for the competition and the rules. That's fun to me. When I travel to a place I like knowing that a certain standard is upheld b/c the tourney is a PDGA event..

To each his/her own!

...without knowing they were looking to give away passes...

Do you just randomly call radio stations Glover? We're all DYING to know, what is the screening you get to see?

If you get to see the stones, that will be cool. Except they're not who they used to be. Literally though, I think once you get 10+ blood transfusions you become a completely different person. You'll definitely have to report back to us.

You're a superstar now Glove...

Get you some Open Cro! I had a blast in the club champs playing with ya. We shot the exact same score the first 3 rounds, then you took me by 2 haha. Good luck to all those playing in the CoF this weekend. I'll be home rooting our beloved Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.

shoot em down!
