After further review, the PDGA Board of Directors approved an update to the PDGA Tobacco Policy, the text of which is displayed below. The policy is effective immediately and supersedes all previously published tobacco policies. The updated policy is similar to the Tobacco Policy implemented in 2012 for PDGA Majors, but now extends to PDGA National Tour events as well any concurrent sanctioned events tied to those events. Another key change to the policy is it now applies to Event Staff, in addition to players and their caddies listed in the previous policy.
The PDGA is constantly looking for ways to grow the sport of disc golf, a task that comes in many shapes and sizes and one we cannot do alone. We are always on the lookout for others that share our passion and vision and who are creating best-of-breed solutions. Today, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with UDisc who will provide live scoring and statistics for the 2018 PDGA National Tour Elite Series as well as the 2018 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships.
