For the exact same reason I gave 1978.

Surprisingly I went up 10 points. My only tourney this year I played like garbage? Think i'm going to do a single day c tier or B tier as I am hitting tournament burnout i think!

Happy that my rating didn't fall any further, though if anyone thinks I'm mentioning the actual number in a public forum, they're crazy. Bad enough that the PDGA's been documenting my decline over the past 3 years.

I know it's just a arbitrary number, but I've flirted with getting out of the 800's a few times and never got out. Now I'm 900 exactly. Finally in the 900's. I guess I need a new, completely arbitrary goal.

Do you have any events that show up after April? Its past 12 months from your last event. So April '12 to April '13 would make sense.

^everything is correct, I should finally lose the CAC from last year, and possibly the 21 Hole Salute and QCS on the next update.

Good for you Matt and that was a different time. Everyone has their own motivations, beliefs, and timelines.

Bottom line as Ive outlined before. The pro division takes money from the sport because all the money for payout comes from the players. I have no interest accepting cash, at all, until the money comes from outside the sport. I play open in tournaments that offer it and will continue to decline cash. I see no issue with that. It helps the TD. We are part of a sport that has maybe 50 true pros. In the open division its just a couple people exchanging money plus some of the Am's money. At least in the Am divisions ~50% goes back to the TD/course/club.

I've been competing at a high level in sports for 20+ years. No internet person can tell me what I need to get better or what motivates me. Im not going to this years worlds. But maybe I will go to the one 5 years from now, in no way shape or form am I declining to accept cash in open, so that I can win Am worlds. Infact, I would prefer to win the USADGC over Worlds. That course is more of a challenge to my specific skill set than any I have played in any other tournament. I played the CAC, because those 3 courses are my least favorite and most challenging to me mentally in Charlotte. Had it been at Sugaw, HN, and Bradford, I probably would not have played.
