I think you forgot some options:

Touring Pro Cards, PDGA Points, Qualification system similar to the Vibram Open.

Bigger tournaments are creating tiered registration based on rating for pro divisions. Mine and Chris' point is that it seems like an arbitrary cutoff. You can certainly use ratings to tell that Paul...

I agree with that. On Saturday there was a headwind on hole 17 which made that hole VERY tough.

Sure but 3 random people from this forum aren't playing in the tournament. It's a national tour event for pros, so pros should play the most rounds. This schedule was announced after the field had...

I think they are blazing a new trail. Is there another NT that has PROS and AMS play the same venue that gives AMs 4 rounds and PROs 3?

Given the 3 rounds instead of 4, wouldn't it make sense to play tougher courses? Also since you brought it up. How many courses at NTs this year did MPOs play that are considered "blue level" like...

I do believe it's the first time Hall of Fame has moved to a 3 round format. 2013 it was 4 rounds. Glad we agree that Warner should be played.

It's pretty simple, don't go for it and you can take an easy par. Go for it and you risk a double bogie. Go for it again and you risk a really big number.
