Pros getting cash with minimal outside sponsorship $(current situation)
Disc golf money leaving to be spent on non disc golf related things, hurts the sport.

ok.. again.. still sounds like the easy solution is to not have pro divisions offered in the local am tournament scene. I guess I don't see how growing the pro side doesn't grow the sport. Still seems strange so many ams don't want to see the pro side grow more. Again.. I am not a pro, I could care less about player packs or winning merch. But I would like to see the pro side of the sport grow more.
