Open players are also allowed to buy into the winners circle competition for open.
Winners circle payout depth will be 45% for intermediate, 35% for advanced and 25% for open and we will use standard PDGA payout tables to determine the payouts. "

The winners circle thing seems pretty hokey to me. I agree I think it encourages sandbagging. Now if they had one payout for everyone where ams could compete score wise vs the pros for a payout that would be cool. That way if an am would do well in pro they still could get something. It should still be relatively small but would be a cool thing for ams. Not just competing amongst themselves, while kinda forcing them to pay attention to how the pro's are doing.
