I am currently listed as a pro player but want to reclassify as an amateur. How can I go about doing this?

Please contact the PDGA Memberships Manager with your request for reclassification. Pro class players may reclassify to Amateur class provided they meet the following criteria:

  1. The player has not accepted cash while competing in a Professional division within the past year.
  2. The player has not previously been reclassified from Pro to Amateur within the past five years.
  3. The player's rating is...
    1. less than 970 for males under 40 years of age throughout the calendar year
    2. less than 935 for males of ages 40-49 throughout the calendar year
    3. less than 900 for males of ages 50-59 throughout the calendar year
    4. less than 850 for males of ages 60-69 throughout the calendar year
    5. less than 800 for males of age 70 or older throughout the calendar year
    6. less than 875 for females under 40 years of age throughout the calendar year
    7. less than 825 for females of ages 40-49 throughout the calendar year
    8. less than 775 for females of ages 50-59 throughout the calendar year
    9. less than 725 for females of ages 60-69 throughout the calendar year
    10. less than 700 for females of age 70 or older throughout the calendar year

A player whose player rating does not meet criterion #3 above may request a medical exemption reclassification from the PDGA Tour Manager, but only due to a permanent injury or condition that will prevent them from ever playing at their former level. The player must submit a request in writing with detailed reasons and supporting documentation from a medical professional.  Such requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and the player’s round ratings must clearly display that they are playing below the requirement in criterion #3 before such a medical exemption will be considered.  A medical exemption will NOT be considered for temporary injuries or conditions.
