Been thru this several times. The amount of money the PDGA pays for services specific to pros is about equal to the $75K difference in collected member fees between ams and pro members. The Board went thru this and published the items back when Shive was on the Board. Marshal program, Tour guide, NT bonuses, Pro Worlds underwriting including the DVD were some of the items on that list of little or no benefit for Ams.
Rater of the tossed arc.
