Dang, really? That's actually way more than I thought would even be available. I just always feel bad when I see payouts and someone in 4th place gets like $600... you'd need to do that so many times over to even support yourself. I guess McBeth is just cleaning up!

edit: looking at the chart there is a significant drop in the pay, it seems. From Nikko to Paige is nearly 10k difference... I mean, good for them but it still seems like you have to be at the very top in order to make a decent living.

Lacrosse is booming here in southern maryland. They've begun women's leagues.

Exactly. And that's not including disc sales, and bonuses which Innova gives him for winning tourneys. Plus whatever else he makes from other sponsorships. I wouldn't be surprised if he cleared 60K last year.

Yeah I was going to add that in. The top players in the sports always demand the most sponsorship dollars. Michael Jordan is still making 90 million a year! In ball golf Tiger has been said to get paid 1 million just to show up for a tournament. I don't think we will reach that kind of level but you never know!

How do they get paid for discs? I am guessing that McBeth gets crazy bonuses from Innova considering how many discs he gets sold.

Do we want to see our top players be able to make a comfortable living playing Disc Golf? That would be nice.
If Disc Golf players don't make a bunch of money, will the sport fade away? Not likely!

Innova also covers his entry fees, and has also covered some travel expenses, to Europe for example.
