Reply not interested in starting this debate back up, just stating my position.
That is the stupidest last sentence I have ever read. "I am going to say my piece and do not care what anyone else thinks"
Currently you get some sort of recognition for placing in a high percentage. So this True-Amateurism is really only rewarding the top 2-3 guys out a a field of 100. I totally understand why they are doing this. It just seems odd to reduce the prize percentage buy so much.
I think Trophy only is great, but if they do that then they need to break it up more so more trophies are available. The more winners, the happier people will be.
