Simple from your perspective. But doing things that way creates more headache for the TD for what is likely to be little benefit.

In your attempts to persuade TDs to offer these divisions, have...

Feldberg did say he'll be playing more in Masters, but not at DGPT events which he says will be his primary focus for touring. Wouldn't shock me at all if he played both Masters and Open at...

That really only works if no one else in the field has a similar "advantage" and shoots a good score. And of course, it also requires you to actually play a good round.

The only way to sandbag the overall event is for a pro to pose as an amateur (which is a different kettle of fish), so the sandbagging concern lies with the sidebet.

There is a reason that they...
