From the competition manual:

Pre-registration is required for PDGA Major & National
Tour events and strongly suggested for all other tier
events.

Posting of the pre-registration list on pdga.com is required
for Major & National Tour events (see sanctioning
agreement for details) and strongly suggested for all
tier events.

Pre tournament check-in is required for Major & National
Tour events and suggested for all other tier events.

All players at PDGA National Tour and Major events are
required to be available to any and all media while on site
except during or within 30 minutes of the start of a
competitive round.

The following dress code for all competitors will be
enforced at all PDGA National Tour and Major Events. The
PDGA also recommends that this dress code be enforced
at Super Tour and lower tier events, but this decision lies
solely with the Tournament Director:
(1) All players in PDGA sanctioned competition and
tournament staff are expected to dress appropriately
and to maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance
at all event sites and associated functions.
(2) All players must wear a shirt covering their upper
chest area. A well-tailored shirt with a fold-down,
mock turtle, v-neck, crew neck, Henley, or zippered
collar, and with sleeves covering the part of the arm
from the shoulder to the elbow (commonly known as
the upper arm), shall be considered acceptable.
Women are also allowed to wear sleeveless shirts as
designated above.
(3) No tee shirts will be allowed, except for competitors in
the Junior and Amateur divisions during preliminary
rounds only. Juniors and Amateurs shall not wear tee
shirts during semifinal or final rounds. Crew neck or
V-neck shirts made of high-performance or high-tech
materials, such as Dry-Fit, Cool-Max, and others will
be allowed.
(4) Shirts that hang down lower than the bottom hemline
on the player’s shorts shall be tucked in.
(5) No ripped shirts, shorts, pants will be allowed on the
course. This includes unhemmed, torn or cut “vents”
at the shirt collar.
(6) No offensive, profane, or obscene slogans or logos
shall be allowed on any clothing. Junior players may
not wear slogans or logos referring to alcohol or
tobacco.
(7) This dress code will be in effect from start to finish at
each event, including all tournament rounds.
(8) Players who do not make a cut, but wish to remain on
site through the duration of the tournament, will be
considered spectators and will not be required to
conform to the Tour’s dress code.

Current PDGA Membership is required to compete in any
Major, National Tour, or SuperTour (A Tier) event.

all that sounds good. i think what i was worried about is if there were any ratings requirements or points accumulation requirements to enter one. but it looks like you just have to sign up early and dress nice - that can be done!

I was looking at the US Masters 9/11-13 in La Mirada on the SOCAL website:
http://www.socaldiscgolf.org/2009Schedule.htm

doesn't look like it's possible to register yet. It's not just for "Masters" division players is it, you don't think?

The US Masters is for Am and Pro male and female players who turn 40 or older in 2009. No youngsters. I'm sure the info is a little slow in coming this year because the regular TD, TIm Selinske has a cancer battle on his hands. Here are results from last year so you can see the divisions offered:
