Discgolfprotour.com is registered to Steve Dodge. Based on previous articles in the PDGA magazine and other sources, it shouldn't be a surprise that he would be trying to make a go of something like this.

Also found an online presentation from him from a couple of months ago:
https://prezi.com/_kcs5h06u3il/disc-...ur-investment/

The presentation included the PDGA logo at the end. I also realized I hadn't looked at PDGA Board minutes lately, so I looked and found this from the latest minutes (July 14th):
-----
Dodge National Tour Proposal –Graham
Brian Graham advised the Board that Steven Dodge was requesting approval of the latest proposed draft Master Services Agreement submitted by Disc Golf USA regarding management of an elite national series of events to replace the PDGA National Tour in 2016. Dodge has stated that he needed a signed agreement in hand to reach the previously agreed upon level of investment by the July 15 deadline. Discussion ensued and the Board and Graham were in agreement that it was never the intention of the Board to sign any sort of formal agreement until after July 15, and only if the agreed upon investment level had been reached by that point. Following the conclusion of each BOD member providing their thoughts on the proposed agreement, Dave West announced that the floor was open for a motion. No motions were put forth.

Further discussion continued and it was the consensus of the Board that future privatization of the National Tour was a concept that they were in agreement with, but that this agreement just didn’t feel right and Dodge had not reached the self imposed level of investment by the agreed upon deadline. Graham stated that he felt that a change of this magnitude should be put out for bids allowing others the opportunity to submit a proposal and the board was in agreement.
MOTION
(Decker/McCoy)
Contingent upon the $400,000 goal in investments not being met by July 15, to set an agenda item for the 2015 Fall Summit to begin discussions to create an RFP for outsourcing the 2017 National Tour.
Yes:
Decker, McCoy, Sinclair, West, Nagtegaal
Motion passes 5-0
-----

The Fall Summit was last month, but no minutes are posted yet. Guess we'll find out more soon.

Here's some in-depth information on the Tour, with thoughts from Steve Dodge, Nate Heinold, Will Schusterick, and Val Jenkins:

Disc Golf Pro Tour built on sustainable schedule, 'culture of the disc'

I really think the scheduling and festival will really set this tour apart. It'll be interesting to watch, for sure.
