Ben is WRONG....sorry bud...http://www.pdga.com/files/2015_divisions_ratings_point_factors.pdf
For Advanced (Amateurs) you can be a 1000 rated player and plan in any division in Advanced (Masters, Grand Masters, etc.....)
The Rec/Int/Novice though do have "Limits" You must be an 849 rated or lower to play Novice, you must be a 899 or lower player to play Recreational, and you must be a 934 or lower rated player to play Intermediate.
It gets dicier as Pro's playing as Ams (with MAC many pros played in an "AM" tourney as would be allowed by their ratings). There are CUTS as well though to the AGE protected divisions that a "pro" can play in....See the bottom of the chart "Pros Playing Am" for more reference. They CAN NOT play in MAJORS as Am's though regardless of their rating.
The cut off on the registration is 2 weeks, a ratings update may have altered his rating.... 2.2 A. #2
Hope this clears it up some for ya.
For those of you asking about the ratings....and not wanting to review the page 1 part of this thread here it is again.... I am sure that Scott will notify and correct the individual according to the rules of the game.
