To allow these open players to play Am with those ratings and then tell us its trophy only.. Then they can kiss my @%% .. I hope they get a low turn out and I will be spreading the word to the crew I was goin to travel with.. What a joke
I don't know that a smear campaign is the best way to handle the situation.
Played my one and only Am Worlds in 2003. Finished 13th with the goal to finish in the top 10. I am sure I was beat by players that had won Open events. I may have won Open events at non-sanctioned events.
Have no clue what my payout was? Do know that I won the long drive contest, I have the trophy to prove that.
I know the players pack is going to be off the hook. The courses are going to be sweet. The experience will last a life time.
