If a company, say DiscGolfPromotions.com (just made that up) were to work pretty much full time and sell advertising, say to the tune of $100,000-$200,000 a year and promote and run big tournaments, like an NT and a couple of A tiers a year and make the venture 'for profit', and pocket a nice chunk of change, would the golfers out there be ok with that? The $$ numbers are just numbers as I don't know how much it would actually take to run several or more tournaments a year AND make money. Just thinking out loud here. I also am not saying I'm going to do it but just floating the idea.
What do you think?
Its the same thought that MANY Disc Golfers have had and obviously STILL do to this day.
How can I make a living playing & promoting Disc Golf?
YES, It can be done, It is NOT easy. But with the proper motivated person, I believe that it could be done.
I think that AS LONG AS the players feel that they are getting WHAT THEY PAY FOR, there would be NO ISSUE on the amount of $ that you "profit".
