I agree with you. I don't think we need to reinvent the wheel. Like I said earlier, this is why we elect you. Again, the biggest thing I'd like to see is that TJ be given the proper authority and respect when making these decisions. The biggest issue to come out of this conflict last year was whether TJ had the authority to tell one of these two tournaments no. I believe it's within his discretion to reject a tournament even if it falls within pdga guidelines if he doesn't think it's good for the area overall, and I hope he will make the right call in this situation.
I guess I'd further suggest that everyone submit what they'd like to do as early as possible, wait until the NT schedule comes out, and then have a deadline for all tournaments to be signed up or risk losing their date. If 2-3 areas want the same date then TJ will need to work with them to find other dates or make a tough call, but that's where the structure needs to come in.
