Tour Prize Purse: $2.5 million
Championship: Professional Disc Golf Association World Championships, August 9–16, 2014, in Portland, Oregon
Rules: Like golf – but you substitute a Frisbee for the ball and clubs; and instead of a hole, you aim at a metal basket. Some holes stretch over 1,500 feet of open countryside.
Odds: The 20,000 active members of the PDGA tour compete in 2,000 tournaments over an eight-month season for prize money. “Some of the pros make $40,000 a year,” says PDGA spokesman Matt Gregoire. “You can get by on that.”
