This is legitimate, as I am the one who worked on this proposal through the Majors Committee.

The minimum MPO player rating for PDGA Majors and Elite Series events (NT and DGPT events) will be 900 in 2020. More to come soon.

Ultiworld has an article about it I believe, but they may just be sourcing MTL. But, my understanding is that this is true. And I have no problem with it.

Second. Yes the DGPT events are considered "Elite" level, on the same plane as NT events. Although they only have A-tier status for points purposes in the PDGA.

What are we going to talk about during Worlds now?...

Why?

Total cart before the horse move that benefits NO ONE.

I think it's a good rule change. A 900 rated player can at least get through the round without slowing things down too much. A 750 rated player (which lloyd is) adds a ton of time to the pace of play, which must be really annoying for the other players on the card, who although not top pros, are probably at least upper 900's rated players.

In my time of running events I have come to realize that taking more shots is not usually what defines a group as slow. I would almost guarantee you that Nikko is slower than Lloyd...

It can make us look more professional to put a ratings floor in our top events. It is step 1 to a qualifying system in the far off future. And it can help out pace of play. This way we won't have many complaints about a 1020 rated player shooting 30 strokes better than someone on their card and slowing down the entire group (or event).

Honestly, this affects about 5 people. I don't see an issue with it. The lowest person to cash at an NT last year was 950 or so at Vegas.

why stop at 900 then?

imo everyone playing in the things should have to hold a Tour Card (won't happen- need the added cash) OR all players should be able to compete in what is by name an OPEN division.
