Instead, we expect TDs to lose money just so that the 18th place intermediate player gets to take home some extra plastic.
I could be wrong, but I don't believe Texashammer was directing that at TD's, but more to the OP. From my reading it seems like TH is just saying the entry fee is a sunk cost, so any small winnings coming back to him/her will just be reinvested into new plastic. Why stress out over not winning some of your $25 back? Just enjoy the experience for what it is, a DG tournament on a nice course with a chance to meet fellow DG'ers.

Apologies if I read that wrong.
