I don't know how much Dodge wanted out of the DGPT, or how much the new ownership wanted him gone. Possibly some combination of the 2.

Regardless of that specific dynamic, it comes across as catty for him to pen a public article about what he thinks "should" happen to the DGPT, mere months after ties were cut with the organization. Bro, you're not steering that ship anymore.

Every A tier in the country, except DGPT events, don't get priority scheduling. The PDGA works directly with DGPT (and did so when it's Steve's show) to ensure that these events fit into the touring schedule accordingly. Tours working together within a system is NOT uncommon - we see it in Golf with World Golf Championship Events, PGA Events and USGA Events. This really is no different.

Despite this, Steve has once again taken the unprofessional attack route of the PDGA. It's really getting tiring.

Perhaps Steve can spend his time working on his next failed disc golf business. After Marshall Street, Prime Discs, Vibram and now the DGPT, I'm sure he will think of something that will fail so he can then shift the blame on to someone else.

Hold in, Marshall Street failed? When? I just bought a couple of discs from them a few months ago!?

Marshall Street is not actually Steve's business either- he split with them (Jason Southwick) to form Prime Discs.

Steve had a small hand in founding it, but is no longer involved and it certainly did not fail. Perhaps MTL was referring to the Marshall Street Disc Golf Championships? But that event transitioned into what we now know as the MVP Open at Maple Hill. Hardly call that a failure either.

Clarifying - was referring to the split with Marshal Street.
