That's the point I was getting at, as well as the fact that you need to be a Current PDGA member. So just to clarify for everybody: there used to be 2 requirements to play in NT or worlds. Now there are 3.

It. Was. Never. Open. To. EVERYONE. It was, and still is, open to everyone*

You're assuming he's thought this through completely and knows all of the unintended consequences.

$75 for Pro membership, and $10 for the open book, take as long as you want, test.

So $85 and some reading.

They're not really what we mean by 'eligibility criteria' are they? Why not include 'must be able to navigate to venue' and 'must be in possession of shoes and a disc'.

While we're being literal absolutists about "Open", we could do the same about "Professional" and whittle the field to about a dozen people.

Agreed. The term "professional" for 99.9% of the "professional" disc golfers out there is a joke.

One disc I found had the guys PDGA number on it so I looked up this 'professional'. He had earned winnings of about $2000 in the past 5 years.

In a disc golf tournament 'professional' means playing for money. 'Amateur' means playing for stuff. Any where else, 'professional' means you get paid for what you do, which would be the few people who play for Discraft, Innova etc.
