Default PDGA announces World Championships to split. Open / Age Protected

I'm glad this is happening. I wish this had happened 3 years ago. Since you do not need 6+ courses for 500+ people, now more regions will have the opportunity to host the World Championships.

The Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) is pleased to announce that beginning in 2017, a new and separate Disc Golf World Championship event will be contested for all age-protected divisions. The 2017 PDGA Professional Masters Disc Golf World Championships will be held in addition to the existing PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships, which will be limited to qualified Open Professional Men and Open Professional Women players. The tournaments will continue to be sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association as PDGA Major events.

Additionally, for marketing purposes, it is the intention of the PDGA to have at least a $100,000 payout for the inaugural Pro Worlds, which is a substantial increase over previous years.

Surprised that "no semifinals or finals" is stipulated.

200 players x $500 (net of fees) entry fee = $100K.

Simple.

"This will also open up the potential for more International bids."

As much as I'd like to see the big guns compete for the big one in Europe, I don't think this change will affect the chances of that really happening.
