If you really want to be diplomatic, you can give people an unofficial warning after their transgression. It's not the ideal in rules enforcement, but depending on the severity, you can point out...

Worlds remains many things, to many people. A championship and a convention and lots more.

There doesn't seem much impetus to make it just a championship, with only the players who have a...

You'd get some of that feel.

Not during play, of course, and depending on what you participated in. I was at Charlotte (1100 players), and stayed in the host hotel. That's being immersed in disc...

That ought to about cover it.

I was going to suggest a more generalized, "how we got here" content. I doubt many viewers have watched the entire broadcast. Clips of what the leaders did in...

Perhaps we can prove who's best over multiple rounds in some other event.....

Like, every other one.

It's not always easy. I've given people advanced warnings, only to be told that they weren't going to do (whatever) on the actual throw. And sometimes, you can't be sure when the player is going to...

I wouldn't put too much into the design. Put bricks in the ground, like Future Primitive suggested, at least to mark distances.

My experience is that everyone practices putting in their own way,...

The picture attached to the OP isn't about the year-end bonuses, though---it's about the total purses.

It compares the players by average finish---what if it compared them by accumulated number of...

It might help to consider the purpose of those payouts. Which I don't know.

Is it to elevate the status of the NT events? To encourage players to play in more of them? To make touring more...

They didn't necessarily get away from it because it's not a good idea. Just that they had a better one.

Obviously, it was good enough to do at least 4 times, perhaps more.

But it's true that...

I haven't been paying close attention---I doubt I'll play any more Worlds, whatever is decided.

Wouldn't that mirror the Selinske?

I don't think so. If I read it correctly, it was also done in 2004 (Des Moines) and 2008 (Kalamazoo). Perhaps other times as well.

I just think that over time, weighing the pros and cons, the...

They used to do this about every 4 years---a combined All-Divisions Pro-Am Worlds. Charlotte 2012 (?) may have been the last; I think it had over 1,100 players.

So it's been tried and...

If the event draws 2 more people because of it's higher-tier status, that will more than replenish the payouts.

It's true, it's real money, but in the decision of whether to sanction as a B-tier,...

This came up some years back, at a big amateur tournament, possibly Bowling Green. I'll get the details wrong; I only remember it because I knew the winner.

It was sponsored by a local brewery or...

Which brings up the better question; it's not how to fund a B-tier, but why fund a B-tier.

Particularly if you have 70 ams for a tournament. Stick with that success, and be happy.

Here's one way:

If you have 50 Ams at $50 each, that's $2,500. You give $2,500 worth of payout, valued at retail---that's 100%.

But you only pay $1,800 wholesale costs for that merchandise. ...

I envision an errant drive being more than 30' shorter than a good drive. Unless there's a dogleg and that 30' means missing the landing zone.

On long, open holes, 30' distance, or 50' off the...

You've lost me. How can there be minimal difference between an errant throw and a good one?
