Do you think that could make up for purses that are 1/5th or less? My point was they aren't playing 5 times more events. If payouts were equal or close to it, that would have Paige taking home over $150K based on the winning-frequency theory.

If this is solely tourny purse totals, it's even more impressive. Too lazy to check if FPO world title pays $10k, but our local A-tier has $1500+ to MPO and at most $500 to FPO.

probably includes NT bonus as well but yes the thin field at the top of FPO definitely allows these 3 to make more dough than the vast majority of the men most of whom can find themselves on the outside of the top 10 looking in on any given week.

I’ll definitely keep my day job. JFC! I knew they didn’t get much from tournaments, and also they get $$ from endorsements and other means, but those numbers are shockingly low.
I’d have been fourth on the list with what I made at the public defender’s office fresh out of law school. Twenty-two years ago.

You are comparing 2019 dollars to 1997 dollars. You would have been top of that list in 1997 with your starting salary. That entry level job paid you more than top three players combined in 1997!


Here are the earnings for the top 10 Professional Disc Golfers in 1997:



K. Climo $13,859.00
R. Russell $10,777.00
S. Stokely $10,109.00
B. Hammock $7,727.16
G. Lissaman $5,447.00
L. Leonard $5,292.00
M. Moser $5,183.50
B. Schultz $4,750.00
B. Rico $4,523.00
S. McDaniel $4,440.00

Why are those numbers shockingly low?

How much revenue do those players bring to those tournaments?

This probably doesn't include sponsor bonuses for winning.

I wonder if any top players have sponsor match for tournament winnings?

Fair point.

I guess I just presumed that they made more than that. I literally had no idea what any of them earned in tournaments before this
