This might be what he meant.

B tier requirements Minimum Added $ to Pro Purse $500

If you add up the pro payouts it comes up way short of the required minimum for a B tier

You know what the PDGA is going to do about not meeting Tier Requirements? Absolutely nothing. Just like they do absolutely nothing when TD's don't go through their State Coordinators. Until the PDGA starts enforcing their own rules nothing will change and the same issues Jay and others have been discussing will continue. Why even have Tier Requirements and State Coordinators anyways? And this is not a knock on the TD's, while I don't agree with many of the practices followed by some, this is squarely on the PDGA for not enforcing their own requirements.

lmfao! the advertised entry was $60! ON THIS THREAD!! Let's do the numbers anyway.

Payout = $1419

23 pros X $50 = 1150 less (pdga fees) $69 = 1081

1419-1081 = $338 added - and I'll even give you whatever 2nd in GM was - maybe another $100 - still, that's short of what's required and definatly short of what was advertised.

Oh, but I think it will - maybe not overnight. But trust me.....Anything is possible.
