This is why I think one event should decide it. If that event is two-dayer, great. All those events are early in the season. I think you want the player who is playing the best golf NOW(August)

Do you want to consider making Adv players eligible? You would. The beauty of Iowa Games as the qualifier is that anyone could afford to try and all of the Adv players could play in the same division in the same layout as the Pro players.I disagree. I look at it more like being able to qualify for USDGC is a priveledge for playing in the Open Division.
Do you want the best player, or the best player for that type of tournament? Certain players are suited better for certain courses. Tanner's game is obviously well suited for the USDGC, whereas AO has struggled down there. If the qualifier predominantly uses pitch and putt courses (which means most courses in Iowa)I don't think Boone is a pitch and Putt, maybe that's just me. then you might not get the best player suited for that tournament. Tyler and Grant are Adv players that are going to beat me pretty regularly on all courses, but get me down to Ozark Mountain or Winthrop Gold and I'll still be able to show these young punks a thing or twoyou're probably right with that statement.
There are a lot of variables to consider. I just hope whatever TJ decides will be supported. His decision may not suit everybody that's for sure. Tough. Make it work for you or work hard at qualifying another way.
