The PDGA and Dynamic Discs announced that, thanks to donations from the governing body and the tournament host, the payout for this week’s Professional Disc Golf World Championships will be the largest ever in the history of the event.
The total purse will come in at $130,000, with $10,000 going to the Open division winner and $5,000 allotted to the Open Women’s champion. For comparison, the 2015 winners of each division pocketed $6,000 and $2,500, respectively.
Pro Worlds kick off tomorrow in Emporia, Kansas.
