Forgive me for not realizing you just turned pro. PDGA records indicate you were playing in Pro divisions since 2010, hence my confusion. I guess when I read "reclassified" I was thinking Pro to Am...

I don't see much distinction between B- and C-tiers. Especially for the Ams, since a lot of C-tiers are giving players packs and paying 100%, anyway. Sometimes the only local event is a B-tier, and...

Could we talk disc golf?

It might help to ponder the reasons for protected divisions in the first place. Not just gender-protected, but age-protected (young and old) as well.
