My guess is it's not true. No link in the original post. Nothing on any official channels before or since. Just the trolling opening post.

This kind of decision would have to have been made in an official Board vote if it were a PDGA decision. The last meeting where a vote would have taken place was at the Fall Summit just after the HOFC (when the so-called Weema rule was approved) and the next, if scheduling trends hold, should be a teleconference tomorrow (first Tuesday of every month). If we didn't hear about it from the Summit, it probably hasn't happened.

If it's just a DGPT thing, then that's a call they're entitled to make but considering they typically put sponsor choices on their feature groups, I can't see then limiting their pool of potential candidates like this. Who plays on the MVP Open feature card to represent MVP? Do they have a 1020+ player? (no, they presently don't)

Trolls gotta troll, I suppose.

I thought our own titanic sinks jumped up above 1020 this year... am I remembering wrong?

Edit: he is 1017 rated now... I don't know if the USDGC dragged him down or if it's just a faulty memory.

USDGC ratings don't count so must be faulty memory

I don't think it's accurate but the HOFC meeting notes haven't been posted yet.

Right, but my assumption is that a change like this isn't likely to be kept a secret for 3+ weeks before a formal announcement or approval/publication of the meeting minutes. The Weema thing was out a nano-second after the vote without any formal announcements. No way something like this doesn't get leaked the same way.

Just so I can stick it to the man(DGPT), I am buying camera equipment(my iPhone and a few for my buddies), assembling a liquored up camera crew(my buddies and me), lining up an editing staff with no talent(more of my buddies) and we will be covering worst rated card at every event on tour and posting it on YouTube..............

Can't image we would much worse than the live broadcast crew over at the DGPT.
