I think that is a little extreme view point. Who hasn't been paid from a league night? Should we all be pros?

PDGA has clear guidelines of who can/can not play AM worlds.

Then you follow your guidelines and I will do what I see morally correct. Good luck tonight at the city council meeting.

If you go to a small town unsanctioned tournament and you play adv most of the time in pdga tournies, are you required to play am in the unsanctioned tourny? Dont think so and why should you? So you can win 2 discs for beating 30 other people?

this... you can however play am after you accept but not at majors if your rating is under a certain number if he hasnt cashed but wants to play pro between then and now just turn the cash down and prize out
Are you ready for the Challenge?

What are you talking about? How does it have to do with anything?

For those without any .....

2.1 General
A. Players are not allowed to enter a division for which they are ineligible. Please see The Table of PDGA Tour Player Divisions for specifics.

I. A player registered as a Professional may only compete in Amateur divisions in select cases. (See Section 2.4 for specifics)


2.3 Reclassification
B. Amateur to Professional
(2) An Am player is automatically re-classified as Pro when the player has accepted cash while competing in a Pro division. Accepting prizes in lieu of cash or accepting money for winning an ancillary contest such as an ace pool does not cause a player to relinquish his or her amateur status.

2.4 Pros Playing Am
A. Pros rated less than 970 may now compete in Amateur divisions offered at PDGA A, B, and C Tier events, for which they qualify based on player rating, age, and sex.

(1) Pro Men and Women
< 970 can play Advanced (MA1)
< 935 can play Intermediate (MA2)
< 900 can play Recreational (MA3)
< 850 can play Novice (MA4)

< 935 can also play Advanced Master (MM1) if they are of Masters age
< 900 can also play Advanced Grandmaster (MG1) if they are of Grandmasters age

(2) Pro Women only
< 850 can play Advanced Women (FW1)
< 800 can play Intermediate Women (FW2)
< 750 can play Recreational Women (FW3)

B. Players are awarded Amateur points for their performance but these points are not eligible for year-end awards or Worlds invitations.


Cliff Notes: If you accept cash (in a sanctioned event) you are automatically re-classified as a Pro (regardless of rating). If rated less than 970 you may compete in AM Divisions in A, B, and C tiers only (World is a Major so you may not compete as an AM).
