So where do you want it to go then?

I think Ams should be playing trophy only, and thought that back when I was playing Am full time.

I would love trophy only. It has been tried around here for a Great Lakes Open a few years ago. It was pretty poorly received.

I would be happy to have my money go to the club, supporting youth play, new course development and local course maintenance.

So do you think that people who come from out of town to play a tournament which appropriates entry fees this way would be happy with that, and come back to that tournament? Most of what you listed will not benefit those players in any way.

Most (if not all) of what he listed ACTUALLY grows the sport

I would be. I am more than happy to see my, out of town money, go to benefit another area's local scene. I love the game and have been around it for a long time, I am happy with the sport's growth, regardless of the direct benefit to me. I haven't been involved in many larger tournaments, where out of town player might travel, that make a pile of profit. And, if we are talking about trophy only, I still don't think it would create a windfall, given the lower entry fees.

Ok so I should have said 'directly benefits' them.

I'm not saying he's wrong, or that I'd even have a problem with that. I bet a lot of people would though.

Each division should have the money they put into it, go to that divisions payouts. When I played more events I always hated when the TDs would take the entry fee money of the ams and give it to the pros. There were always a couple Wisconsin Tour events notorious for that which I never understood why people were playing them (one of them wasn't even PDGA sanctioned for the Am weekend even though it is required to be a B tier to be a Wisconsin tour event). I am cool with the wholesale thing, you can deduct the players pack cost from the payouts, if you want to offer a really nice players pack and do trophy only, that is ok too. Just don't take my funds and give them to a different division.

This is an entire other discussion, but if we already have gated divisions, why can't every division just play for cash?

The whole capitalist mantra thing ignores all that altruism I grew up with. Contrary to popular belief, there are some pretty generous folks out there. Tournaments call them... volunteers.
