the fact that Doss is still in the top 10 MPO money earners and not really playing much in the last 2 years says a lot about his success and consistency. Schusterick also - lots of success in the 1st half of the decade, all but forgotten now

Interesting Wins list!

Moser and Schick are two players I watched at the 2007 WV Open when I first started playing and they’re both on the list. I would imagine these two, among others, were the cream of the crop in their regions.

Nice to see Ville in the list. Loved watching his overhand throws on the LCGM8 videos before CCDG, Jomez, et al gained popularity. Those European events were, IMO, the best dg coverage available at the time.

And... Paul and Ricky neck and neck. Shouldn’t be surprising, I guess.

Thanks for posting!

The Decade on Display series has quite a few good articles on the decade's movers and shakers.
Good to see the PDGA step up with some worthwhile journalism.
Articles are wide-ranging, well-written and walk off the beaten path by focusing on some lesser-known achievements.

Winning bigger events has a huge effect. Will has 3X wins at the USDGC, so those will keep him high on the list.

People often forget that Nate Doss is one of the last four people to win Worlds. Again winning a big event will keep you high on the $$list. He won in 2011 before Paul & Ricky went 7 of 8.

Bottom line, play more, win more.

Also says a lot about how little overall prize money has increased during the decade.

I disagree with this a bit. There are definitely more events with large purses than there were 10 years ago. There are significant payouts going deeper into the field than there used to be. But there's also more competition for that money...more quality players to beat and more players capable of finishing in the top 5-10 on any given weekend.

Just two examples of NTs from 2009 that were also NTs in 2019.

Beaver State Fling
2009 MPO places paid over $1000
(101 players, 15 1000+ rated)
$2850
$1890
$1485
$1172
$1172

2019 MPO places paid over $1000
(80 players, 57 1000+ rated)
$5000
$3500
$2250
$1500
$1100
$1100
$1100


Masters Cup
2009 MPO places paid over $1000
(79 players, 28 1000+ rated)
$1689
$1237

2019 MPO places paid over $1000
(81 players, 51 1000+ rated)
$5000
$3500
$2500
$1750
$1500
$1066
$1066
$1066

Purses are growing...the field is growing with them. At some point tournament fields will reach a ceiling where capacity won't allow for much improvement in quality, but the money will likely continue to increase and it will much easier to see the growth in purse sizes.

I agree that purses are growing, NT events have probably doubled their purses in 10 years, but still not on a scale that turns any heads. It's still all about the majors and NTs to accumulate career earnings.
