Ha, yeah. I mean 3 courses is about all they get at Worlds outsidea of the final 9 from time to time. I think this is a great move. I guess I better look at taking more time off to go practice.

I generally would agree with this. I think there are other ways to qualify a player then by them simply playing well in one event once.

Yes, an allotment of gear is almost always part of sponsorship. I happen to know there are pros who get entry fees paid. Fade Gear for instance with at least a lot of the local players will pay for...

So we have one guy going from Gateway/Salient to Latitude 64 and two guys going from Vibram to Prodigy. Is that the best we are going to come up with this off season?

Raising entry fees and keeping the best players playing may have a negative affect as well. If only the best are playing, it becomes that much harder for them to win their money back. Better players...

I think entry fees will continue to risend but a significant jump right now is not the right plan. It is not off the table in the long run, but just doesn't make sense now. Limit the number of...

Okay, it is a 54 hole tournament minimum. Let's make the entry fee $1200. How many people show up and what kinds of people show up?

My guess, anyone who can get someone else to pay their entry fee...

I am not opposed to higher entry fees. Remember that everyone who registered for MPO at the Memorial paid $200 on Saturday. If registration fees continue to go up do sponsors stop paying entry fees?...

Obviously I agree that tour cards need to be harder to get. In 2014 there were 113 touring pros in MPO. I think my suggestion earlier in this thread would drop that number significantly. 1020+ rating...

This is interesting. I guess it is good to make sure internationals get included, but couldn't they have simply reserved the spot and not let them register early? I suppose it might help with some...

As far as this event goes I am of the opinion that we all knew well in advance of registration how it was all going to work and if you did not get in it is your own fault. I took a risk trying to...

Vibram makes great discs. It is sad to see people leave their team. I can speculate as to why Dana left, but I know why I put my Vibram away. My dad still likes his Sole but that is the only Vibram...

Wow, the first interesting news of the off season. Sad to see Dana leave Vibram but let's be honest, I got rid of the Vibram from my bag this year. Great feel, inconsistent release.
