So I take it no one from the local club has stood up for the event?

Funny how when it comes to complaining everyone is all in but when it comes to actually fixing the problem...yeah not so much...

Oh my! There weren't enough trophies available in your age-protected AND skill-protected division? Perish the thought!

Sounds like Millennials are finally old enough to play Masters

The only people bitching were the so-called elites, spoiled by the extra attention that the MPO/FPO majors (and NTs and DGPTs) tend to get. The event wasn't at the level of an MPO major to be certain, but it felt pretty damn big and important to me, a player who doesn't often get to such events.
I just thought I’d come on here and drop this here since I won’t get the chance to in person.

Not really. That link was already posted on #107.

Paul, I like you. I like the company that sponsors you and how you handle yourself on the course. I'm no PR expert by any stretch but since you're building a brand its obvious public perception is important. Since I am part of that public I think you need to hear some of this is being perceived. Frankly, if you want to repost someone else's complaints that to me is fine but adding your own 2 cents worth when you weren't there nor have you ever (to my knowledge) volunteered run a tournament smacks of entitlement. Right or wrong that is how it's going to appear to some people. I wasn't there either so maybe your criticisms are justified - maybe they aren't - but know that I am smart enough to reserve judgement. IMHO you need to be really careful taking shots at people who volunteer to run these events when you are making a very good living off of their hard work.

The statement is pretty vague so there really isn't any acknowledgement of what the issues were, just that the event "fell short of providing the experience you deserve as a loyal member and one befitting a Major." So they are taking steps to address something, but we don't know what those steps are other than they are giving people who played this year 20% off to come back next year and try again.

So it doesn't give us much to talk about.
