The biggest purse in disc golf history
June 25, 2021 by Charlie Eisenhood in News with comments
Ultiworld Disc Golf’s coverage of the 2021 PDGA Pro World Championships is presented by Skybreed Discs, a top online retailer and preferred vendor of the 2021 Ledgestone Insurance Open, and Aria Discs, a new disc golf brand making discs designed for beginners.
This year’s PDGA Pro World Championships will feature the largest-ever purse at a disc golf tournament. The total prize purse of $133,000 edges past the 2020 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship’s $130,400 payout. The 2021 DGPT Championship has already committed to at least a $150,000 purse, so the record will be broken again later this year.
This year’s Worlds payout includes $63,250 of added cash and top prizes of $12,000 in MPO and $6,000 in FPO. The winnings for first place finishes are among the highest ever in disc golf, though the DGPT Championships paid out $20,000 to the winners in both divisions last October.
Here is the full payout table, per the PDGA:
