Discussion on the Tick Flick page moved towards ratings and divisions. Big Blue Monster will be a Ratings Based event. An example of one can be found here:http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/20544
Instead of Pro, Advanced, Men, Women, Juniors, Grandmasters, it is just ratings.
All 850 - 900 players will play together regardless of gender or age.
All 935 - 970 players will play together regardless of Pro or Amateur.
All sub 800 players will be grouped together. You get the idea.
There will be one entry fee (probably $20 however subject to change) for all divisions so I can move people to their appropriate division. You are allowed to move up but not down.
There will be a couple of exceptions to accommodate those that want cash instead of merchandise credit.
If you want actual cash, you must play Blue or Gold.
See here for divisions:http://www.pdga.com/files/2015_divisions_ratings_point_factors.pdf
If you are a PDGA member, if you accept cash, it is the same as accepting cash in any other PDGA event. It will alter your Amateur status.
If you are not a PDGA member, I may restrict you from not registering for Green and Purple. I'm still thinking about that one.
This is still very much in the planning stages still other than date and name.
