Mike T was allowed to play? that was wrong on the same premise, but legal I am sure. just the whole "amateur" moniker that came with this tournament needs to change, which is why I humbly submit calling this event the Midwest Challenge in the future.
ethically I would wager a player with a five digit pdga number ratfinked utz's caddy. As an aged pro, I will be happy to have a caddy for the lions den. must be swift afoot, appreciate second hand smoke and speak English fluently
maybe next year call it the Midwest Challenge, allowing lower rated pros to keep a shred of pride as they battle the up and coming ams. also there should an analysis of the ratings criteria for eligi-Billy-Tee to play the event.
as a pro who chose to volunteer, shame on those pros who sharked the ams - and they should remain in the am ranks for a minimum 6 years or refuse cash for 6 years. otherwise a great tournament as usual from scott and dd. ps I have zero am wins and or any other kind of std.
