  • communication ???????????

    IF, you have a player with ratings that are inside the PDGA guidelines of advanced and they sign up for that division, is it OK for the TD to put them in a pro division without talking to said player first?

    No. The PDGA does not force a player to move to pro. If the player wanted to play pro, they would have registered as pro.

      This makes sense to me.
      But my question is does a TD have the power/right to do this?

        Only if the player is not a current PDGA member or there's no Advanced division for anyone. For our PDGA sanctioned Super Class league, we only offer Open, Intermediate and Rec divisions. Advanced rated amateurs have to play Open if they want to play and receive merch instead of cash if they end up in the prizes (which they regularly do including win occasionally).

          Thanks Chuck, but what if there is an advanced division and the player is not a current PDGA member?

            Non-members can be place in any division the TD wishes as long as the player is willing to pay the fee to enter it.

              Yose,
              When dealing with NON-members the TD has the right to have people play where they think they "should" be playing.
              Typically the TD "KNOWS" the local players AND their skill level....
              MOST non-members at a venue ARE locals..this keeps that REAL good AM tha only plays at home from BAGGING in Int or Rec when they should be in Adv. etc..

              Some TD's do this, others dont.....

              The other scenario as you show it....would be that long time Pro, who hasnt been a member for many yrs (too many, IMO ) then signs up as an AM.

              Unfortunately...unless that person used the PDGA "Amnesty" a few yrs ago to get AM Staus back they are STILL a PRO, as long as they HAD excepted cash in the past.

              There IS the "Pros playing AM" rule that could be applied here, I suppose.
              But then that "should" apply to MEMBERS that have "up to date" ratings.

              Again a TD's choice...
              For Men
              sub 970 can play Adv
              sub 935 can play Int OR Adv Masters
              sub 900 can play Rec

              For Ladies
              sub 850 can play Adv
              sub 800 can play Int
              sub 750 can play Rec.

                Heres one.....

                A Few of us....COULD play in BOTH pools at GNW IF we had entered that way "in Time"

                I could play MA1 & MPM........ALL with in the rules..

                The pools play at different times....so I "could" play 3 rds each day and play in 2 different divisions.


                NOT that I ever would....It would most likely KILL ME...

                It has been done in the past at events like the Masters Cup, prior to them going to Tee Times.

                  good to know

                  Thanks Mike,
                  This is something hopefully a few others besides myself were unaware of.
