The biggest purse in disc golf history
June 25, 2021 by Charlie Eisenhood in News with 0 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.
UPDATE: The World Championships purse increased by more than $40,000 after the initial announcement below. See the final payouts here.
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:
