(No, I wouldn't particular support this either, but that would at least be a reason).
Still a bad reason though. Are my fees from 2002 paying in some way for Pro Worlds 2020? I'd like to think that the $40 I paid back then more than covered what I got out of the PDGA in 2002 and doesn't entitle me to anything following that year. I mean, I still had to renew for 2003. The $75 in dues I'll pay in 2020 is equal to the $75 that Dickerson will pay, so we're on even footing by that measure and should be treated the same.

I know, I know, that this is somewhat difficult to administer and that some events already have ratings-tiered registration.

It has a few things going for it.
First, it rewards better play over time (seems pretty natural),
Second, (hopefully) it penalizes sandbagging.

Thoughts?
With Disc Golf Scene it is not difficult to administer at all. IMO Am Worlds is the only place the currently used system could stand some tweaking and that is likely to be less needed once the age-based divisions are separate from MA1 and FA1.

Just FYI, here are the registration schedules and settings used for 2019 World Championship events:
https://www.pdga.com/2019proworlds/r...ation/schedule
https://www.pdga.com/2019amworlds/registration/schedule
https://www.pdga.com/2019mastersworl...ation/schedule
https://www.pdga.com/2019juniorworld...ation/schedule

Pro Worlds is based on ratings. All other worlds have invitations based on the previous year's points totals.

not trying to stir the pot. i'm a masters-aged dg lover, who rarely gets the opportunity to play tourneys. a local tourney (that fills up in minutes) holds 4-5 spots open for the mules that do the course work at that course. as one who doesn't often get the opportunity to help with course work either, I am more than fine with their approach. those folks deserve it.

Jokes aside. Who does not bring water with them to a round? I get the luxury of provided water, but it that really a deal breaker. Entitled pros are ensuring that TD's have little interest in providing space at their events, for them. Both local and touring. It is just not worth the hassle and social media attacks.
Per PDGA tour standards, at this temperature there should have been a water cooler every third hole. This is per the PDGA own standards they provide to TDs. This was a PDGA event ultimately controlled by the PDGA. They didn't even enforce the TD to follow their own recommendations.

Mind you it was still tied for the 5th largest Am Worlds ever. We went with quality over quantity and are glad we did.
Quality it was. I was there. I was also at the Maple Hill Selinske. Stark contrast in professionalism of how it was ran.

I understand how to enforce rules but how does one enforce a recommendation?

I'm not sure I understand how to enforce rules. The rule about how groups are sorted has been broken at 50%+ of events I have played this year.

This event was controlled by the PDGA. They, the PDGA, says at temps 60-80, there should be a water cooler every third hole.

There are 2 PDGA officials at the event.

After day one, when there is not water, the official says to the TD,

'yo, dude, where's the ****ing water at?'

That's how.

Every division had a minimum of 5 open spots in 2019 AM worlds, with the exception of MA70.

Most of the gripes I heard about the 2019 US Masters was AM divisions half the size of pros. Registration opening in Feb 1st for an event in September. And minimal if any announcements made about registration opening.
