yes or bonus money whichever the case may be. Innova players used to also get added bonus if they took all the podium spots at an event but that was a long time ago.

I've heard both yes and no. I've also heard the percentage they match varies.

Tournament winnings are just one revenue source for the pros---particularly the very top ones. They may earn money directly from their sponsors, from sales of signature discs, or from clinics and other side ventures along the way. McBeth is reportedly doing pretty well; perhaps some others near the top are doing okay as well.

yah, it's a bit of a shock to learn how much your favorite player makes from tour earnings. Granted....some DO make a bonus from sponsors, hustle by selling discs, doing clinics, etc. Here's some more at the lower end. Honestly I'm a bit surprised by some of these names and how much they made on tour. Even if you add in misc sales, clinics, etc. Has to be hard, especially those with a wife, family, etc.

Here's the link to the data btw. Just sort on "cash".

Horrifying when the press gangs roll through your town and the next thing you know you are chained up in a van with a bunch of frisbees...

I'm sure most of those guys have a "real" job and/or no children.

Or a trust fund.

Another reason to buy your favorite players sig or tour disc, especially if they are on this list. I hope they actually see a good return on them. It also shows pretty easily why some players are smartly selective on what events they play.

But again, this is JUST tournament winnings. .

Paul has $57000 in winnings in 2019. .but he has a $250000 salery on top of that.

Then add disc sales and bonuses . . so he has WAY over $350 000 a year total

But even if Paul is better payed than other discgolfer we still have quite a few that makes over $100 000 total every year. . .thats not bad for a "small" sport like Discgolf

"Quite a few" is a bit of a leap...

I think "Quite a few" sounds like more people in English than it does in Swedish

I still think that the fact that we have Discgolf players that have an annual income of over $100000 is impressive
