McBeth clearly missed the point of "dumbing down" the broadcast for a beginner audience.

I’ve always wondered what would be improved by splitting up. Different rule book? Different equipment? Less money?

Smaller baskets, lower cost.

Eliminate the PDGA tech requirements. If I were a major disc brand I would absolutely start my own tour and only allow my discs to be used on that tour. It would significantly cut down your talent base in the first year but if your payouts were the best in town everyone would flock to your banner. A well planned and executed brand sponsored tour could effectively win 90% of the disc sales in one fell swoop.

You would have no other top pros playing your tour then.

They make too much from their competing manufacturer contracts.

Plus no disc golf company has the liquid assets to make that happen on their own.

And there's also nothing stopping a company from doing that right now, except logic.
