Yes....but.....a given TD is usually only running one event. He's inclined to run it the way he thinks most players want.

From an old boomerang thrower:

Boomerangs are thrown somewhere between 3/4 and full overhand. They are 1-sided (righthanded, or lefthanded), so if you hold them wrong---or, as jenb mentioned,...

I never lie about how far I throw. It conflicts with my laments about not clearing a certain water hazard, of known distance.

Instead, I lie about how far I used to throw.

The Earlewood Classic's a bit of a mystery, but it's a fun course---above-average, in my opinion---and the event has historic momentum and a sweet spot on the calendar.

Or why it's done. Why should players receive double their entry---effectively be paid, just to show up, then play the event for free?

Paid to play....amateurs!

This, plus the little matter that TDs want players to come to their events.

One drawback to running a low-budget, no-frills event on any course is that attendance may be low. A quality course may...

I take greens fees to be per-player fees, such as on some private courses or golf courses.

Can a TD lump all the fixed costs (course rental, porta-johns, etc.), pro-rate them as "greens fees"?

Note that the PDGA allows TDs to retain 15% for C-tiers (required payout is 85%). Around here, it's the culture that doesn't.

There are several factors that vary widely between events, that...

Note: PDGA sanctioning doesn't allow the "top 3" payout. For sanctioned events, you have to pay the top half.
