2.03 Reclassification of Professional / Amateur

Last updated: Friday, March 8, 2024 - 10:34

  1. Professional to Amateur
    1. Players registered with the PDGA as Professionals may petition the PDGA Memberships Manager or PDGA Director of Event Support for reclassification as Amateurs.
    2. Players must meet all requirements in order to reclassify.
  2. Amateur to Professional
    1. An Amateur wishing to change their classification to Professional may do so by contacting the PDGA Memberships Manager.
    2. An Amateur player is automatically reclassified as Professional when the player has accepted cash while competing in a Professional division (see 1.10.A and 1.10.B). This does not apply to Leagues, see 1.14.C.3.
    3. Accepting cash for winning an ancillary contest such as an ace pool, top-of-the-card round prize, or CTP contest does not cause a player to relinquish their amateur status.
