Not to rehash the conversation from last year about pros playing am, but I noticed one competitor jumped over 970 with the last ratings update. If he's taken cash, is he still eligible to play? I was under the impression that if your rating is over 970 and you've taken cash, you become ineligible for am events until you drop down under 970.
That is correct per this PDGA document:
Pro Male players that are rated <970 and Pro Femal plyaersr that are rated <925 may be able to competer in certain amateur divisions that they quality for on the table at left. This applies only to A, B and C Tier events. Pros may NOT play in Amateur divisions in PDGA Majors
