2023 Tour Card

Overview

In 2022 the Disc Golf Pro Tour launched the first Tour Card program for pro players on Tour. For 2023, we’ve built on the initial pilot program, learning from challenges and implementing ideas from tour card holders and the Player’s Council. We’re pleased to present version 1.0 of the 2023 Tour Card program. Please note that, as we get closer to the 2023 season kick-off, we may make updates and additions to the program.

Full Tour Card details have be sent to qualified participants. For details on the 2023 exemption process, read more below.

Tour Card Exemption Application Process

Competitors who have not qualified to participate in the 2023 Tour Card Program, may apply to gain an exemption to the program. The DGPT will grant 10 MPO and top 5 FPO tour cards through this process for 2023. The deadline to apply is 11:59 PM (Eastern) on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022. Players may apply here. 

 The DGPT will consider the following criteria while determining Tour Card exemptions:

  • 2022 DGPT Points
  • PDGA Player Rating
  • Historic performance results on the DGPT
  • Injury considerations
  • International performance/considerations
  • Travel restrictions 

Tour Card Exemption Applications will be reviewed, determined and issued in early December (2022). Players who have applied for these will hear back on the results at that time and those who are selected may begin registration.

Silver Tour Card (Pilot Program)

New in 2023 as a pilot program, the Silver Tour Card will be a limited exemption and benefit program that allows professional disc golfers who have not qualified for the full Tour Card program to have limited access to registration and benefits. The final details of this program will be separated from the Tour Card Program. Registration for events via the Silver Tour Card will happen separately. The DGPT will issue Silver Tour Cards to  10 MPO and 5 FPO players who do not qualify for their full Tour Cards on a case-by-case basis from the exemption applications. Silver Tour Cards will be issued in Early December (2022) and Silver Tour Card registration will go live at that time.
