Re: PDGA Global Tourney Aug 19-21, 2011
from Chuck Kennedy:
Regarding additional divisions, most places will fill 72 or 90 slots on one course with the divisions being included in the global event along with Rec and Novice players playing up into Intermediate to participate. However, some events will be adding a few other Am divisions as non-global participants, sometimes playing on another course.
As far as global payout for pros, it will be top 33% in each division paid from the $25 per player contributed to their division. It's still iffy whether any cash will be added to the pro global purses. The sum of your three round ratings is your global "score."
For Ams, most of the $15 to the global purse will go towards a player pack which at this point already includes two discs and a DVD. We'll have some additional CTP prizes and possibly something for first place. But little payout should be expected from the global purse with almost all of the Am payout being based on the amount in the local purse.
