I would like to see the NT bonuses equivalent. Same travel costs, performance required relative to field, in order to win.

Until we get more sponsors that want to put money directly into the FPO field, we're going to see lower payouts, just because we're basically gambling with entry fees

but it is not... the bonus money was determined prior to a single disc being thrown this year. (actually for 2018 and just copied to this year)

Just going on the standings. Why are there players not listed in the standings if they played an event? It's not like the standings exclude players that played a single event. Why is that data incomplete?

Okay, going to the results of the events themselves

Total participation:
MPO 79.9%
FPO 20.1%

If you want top money play Mixed Pro Open. Any division with restrictions should receive significantly less money.

In the champions tour in the PGA, the money winners are significantly lower than the PGA tour. Why? Age protected divisons draw less money and less interest from the public. The same can be applied to any age protected or sex protected or any protected field, in any sport. The most competitive and skilled fields will draw the most money and be rewarded with the most significant payouts. It's capitalism. To pay a less competitive and protected field the same money is socialism.

Anyone playing MP40 or MP50 that wants to play for the big bucks can step into MPO if they so desire, and a good number of them can be competitive for it if they did. IMO, the only time age-protected divisions should be getting a significant chunk of added money is if it's a Masters-only event to begin with.

Disagree with regard to FPO. They should get the exact same share, proportionally, of added money as MPO. The highest rated woman in the world will rank near the bottom of every MPO field she might enter, unless we're talking local C-tier events where there's rarely any added cash to divvy up anyway. There's no rationalization for saying "you want to make money, play MPO" to any woman.
