Pro Worlds is a different world. One in which you must raise money and
sponsors in order to pay the players. Totally opposite sides of the coin.
pdga is a cash cow and not allowin the sport to blow up with major sponsors and real money for world champs.. 5k is chump money for what is paid into it.. and us Ams get bent over and done dry with the trophy payout crap. where is all the money goin pdga? hrmmmmm

I hear this year after year. Is your name on the PDGA Ballot coming up? If so I'll vote for you if you are going to make changes.

If it wasn't for the PDGA there would not be any disc golf. The PDGA can only do so much. If you want to see the PDGA's budget you should look it up on their website.

There is the PDGA financials. That isn't a cash cow. That is a mom and pop shop.

The new PDGA standards for submitting a bid for worlds is pretty intense. I think PBurgh may be backing out from trying for 2014.

The bar hasn't really been raised in the bidding guidelines. It's just organized a little better. Chris, what particular elements are causing PBurgh to reconsider? PM me if you don't want to post.

Trophy only payout is a local TD decision and has nothing to do with the PDGA.

I would call this a healthy business outlook, neither cash cow or a mom & pop. When I read it, my first impression was it wasn't too extreme in any measure.

So many excellent courses in the Pittsburgh area to host the Pro Worlds--even if a lot of the top pros stated their discontent with Moraine and Deer Lakes when the PFDO was a NT last year.

Excuse my ignorance. Has Oregon ever hosted Worlds? Just wondering.
