  • amateur playin open in non-pdga event

    Question: Can a person with a pdga # (and who is an am) play in a non-pdga event in the open division without losing their amateur status in the eyes of the dpga?

    An am can play in a sanctioned event in the open division and not lose their am status. As soon as you take cash in a pdga sanctioned event you are a pro. You can play in and take cash in non sanctioned events and still keep your am status.

        Re read new rules on this... this is not true anymore redfive... there is now a loophole for those under a certain rating to accept cash in Open and retain am status...

          You still lose your Am status if you accept cash in a sanctioned pro division. However, you can still enter Advanced sometimes if your rating is below 970. You are excluded from entering Am Majors like Am Worlds, Am Nats and Am World Dubs.

            I was looking forward to sandbagging this summer and giving am worlds a run. Guess not.

              hmmm, i was told differently from someone inside the PDGA... how is this fair to some amateurs who live in areas that have no good pros and the amateur is one of the best players in the area, they are stuck playing amateur or winning the open division and accepting prizes and no cash and sucks to be you for living in that area?

                Life isn't always fair. What's wrong with being the highest rated player in an area and only playing Am? Pretty common dilemma for women in many places.
