    Sanctioned events

    B tier or above

    TD's are required to first redeem scrip for memberships to all non
    member's who cash.

    As it is now it's only "suggested"

    From the PDGA 2013 Tour Standards document on their website...

    "TDs are encouraged to award PDGA memberships as prizes in the amateur and junior divisions for B, and C Tier events."

    Is this what you are referring to, or did you find another piece of info on the PDGA site?

    I don't see anything wrong with this. The decision is left up to the TD to offer the membership option or not.

      i would say IF thats true, then there would be a need for a additional "governing body for disc golf" to give the ol' pdga a run for their money. heck the pdga was started by one man and it was his rules or the highway, so why cant we start up another organization that would have sanctioned events? competition is always a good thing so that one organization does not "rule them all".

        Geezus Jub... give it a friggin rest man. We've been listening to the same old tired diatribe out of you for YEARS. If you don't like the PDGA, don't play the events. It is THAT simple. No one can make you join the PDGA or play any of their nasty sanctioned events. You are the master of your own destiny, Jub.

        Meanwhile, most of us take the time to know what we're getting ourselves into and we still feel it is a worthwhile endeavor. So, how about you let us enjoy the things WE LIKE, and you can go on enjoying the things YOU LIKE.

        What a concept.

        ...


        Again, please take your personal agendas elsewhere.

            The point is, if you're playing a PDGA event then you agree to play by their rules.
            That might mean using your winnings for a membership you may or may not want.
            If that's a problem then don't play in PDGA (or whatever organization) events.

            Your point about competing organizations is well taken, just not relevant to this thread.

                        I am not a pdga member, don't play tourney golf any longer...but had this been an option when I did, I would have accepted it gratefully. Between that and a bunch of discs I din't use, or putters for home use...no brainer

                          Does everyone realize that the PDGA is just "suggesting" that TDs could do this? Are suggestions now some huge offense from "the man"?

                          If someone wants to start an alternative organizing body for disc golf, what is stopping them? Quit whining and get to work on it.
