2008 World Championship Qualification Criteria

All participants in the 2008 World Championships must be current 2008 PDGA members in order to register. Participants in the Amateur and Junior divisions must retain their Amateur status by declining any and all Pro cash won at PDGA Tour events until after the World Championships. All qualifying players may register and compete in any division for which they are age and gender eligible. Players classified as professionals with the PDGA are not eligible to compete in Amateur divisions.

There will be no wait list for this year’s World Championships. Instead all players who do not qualify will be allowed to register after the 60 days exclusive registration period for invited players has expired which is June 1, 2008. Please direct any questions regarding the invitation or registration process to the PDGA Office at office@pdga.com or (706) 261-6342.
