The PDGA has a policy to define when a refund is required and when entry fees are forfeited by the player. I'm not sure why they need a firm policy on what TDs must do with forfeited entry fees. ...

I'm unaware of any talk about it. I'm also unaware of any wheelchair bound player who has ever attempted to play a PDGA event, or if they have, they were denied use of the chair during play.

Which still wouldn't solve the legality issues with Hokom's jump putt. I don't think there's a viable re-write of the rules that can solve that. It's 100% an enforcement problem.

I'm of the mind that Worlds (and frankly other large events) started losing the "feel" as they moved to more of a tee time format. Sure, there's the host hotel and side events and all that for the...

Exactly.

Sometimes I think people expect 1040+ rated play out of the top women, and it's just not going to happen. At least not with any consistency.

That's not to say that the women can't...

Would you expect that the effect that those course factors have is inversely proportional to one's rating? If one is rated 1050, I wouldn't expect there to be much variance in that player's success...

Last year, not counting USDGC, she won 17 of 26 tournaments. That includes a few B and C-tier wins, and she hasn't played any events below A-tier this year. If we remove those B and C-tier wins,...

Quite a turn of events late in the round. Cat seemed to check out mentally on hole 12 with that silly and rushed 3-putt, yet now she's on the 18th green with a putt to win it all. Imagine if she...

Yes, he can. If you're sub-900 rated, you can play Rec whether you're classified as Am or Pro. That goes for any sanctioned tournament.
