I'm sensing a pattern. The Majestic seems to be dying, or is in need of a serious makeover. I bet next year Cale is the only top pro to play otherwise.
The same trend happened during Tim Gill's last few years running it. New blood for better or worse maybe in order here. It could be any combination of title sponsor or TD, but some kind of change will bring people back who are now on the fence.

The courses speak for themselves and people really look forward to multiple day tournaments. This year, unfortunately, was kind of a perfect storm. MN Am Championship was multiple rounds, multiple days at Kaposia, and Am Worlds share some of the same courses as the Majestic. Three big tournaments in three months; kind of hard making one more special than another unless you are willing to bend over backwards as a sponsor, take a loss, and go all in to ensure that player's have a great experience.

Whatever needs to be done, look back at 2009, that was an incredibly successful year.
