to DiscFifty:

My main criticism of the PDGA is simple. Tournament directors, Amateurs and older Pros...

to Teemkey:

Certainly the focus is on Pros, and the events that they would prefer. Amateur concerns are so different, and I can't cover all the bases. I've been a Pro for over 20 years, and...

Consider these six statements:

1) You will be 40 or older in 2016.
2) You would much rather play disc golf competitively than watch somebody else play it.
3) You enjoy a challenge, and don't...

I've had three arthros on the plant knee, but I don't restrict on the runup. Get a good personal trainer and work hard on squats, lunges, leg curls and everything that strengthens the...

Play in the Gentlemens' Club Classic (Feb 26-28 in Henderson near Las Vegas). There will be a field of Legends from all over the country, which is unusual. I will be there, and I'm 75...

to JC17393:

The number of rounds has dropped from 8 to 5. That is a 40% decrease. You say one round was dropped because of "circumstances". There are always circumstances. Is it likely that...

It seems that most respondents like the kinder, gentler format. And this is a self-corrective issue. Those who like it will be more likely to attend in the future, and those who don’t will seek...

You asked a simple question. Why would anybody add cash to a protected division? Here’s the simple answer. For the same reason they would add cash to an Open division. To attract...

Very thoughtful post. I too would like to see the results of a 40+ poll such as the one you describe.

The “tiered entry fee” question is often very confusing to people. About a quarter of the TD’s I have talked to about it did not realize the implications for the 40+ pros paying a...

The vote I propose could be for Worlds, or it could be for general 40+ pro play. I'd prefer a vote on the general question, but am easy either way. You claimed that I am following an...

You say that the default expectation in lower-tier events is that the added cash would be distributed on a per-capita basis. Not so.

Look at the tour standards. The PDGA recommends...
