The only thing I didn't like about it was jumping thru your arse to get to the next venue in between rounds.  That and finding something to eat at the same time.  Otherwise, the courses and folks were/are great.  8)

Don't get me wrong.  I'm not hating on it, and I understand the Ratings minimums, etc...

I sometimes just don't get why people don't want to challenge themselves.....move up, get better.  8)

What's with all the 900+ rated folks playin' Intermediate?.....quoting Chris Carter, amongst others...."C'mon man!"  ;D

I used to be an avid runner in a time long forgotten as well, and I can totally relate to the beer gut......but I

I totally get that it's not going to change anytime soon, and that it's been so ingrained that it's all they/we care to know.  It really needs to be figured out how to get away from that, especially if they/we want to progress the game going forward.  The feeling of being *entitled*, (did I just say that?), to a payout for Am's has been getting a bit nuts.  I do like that, for example, the GBO has narrowed it down to how many they are going to "pay" this year, whereas in the past, the pay would go as far down as 15th?-20th?  That's just silly.

Don't get me wrong, not trying to be "that guy", and I don't see it changing anytime soon as well.  It seriously needs to be looked in to going forward though.  Especially when looking to make payouts better for the actual "Pro's".

Business model? Ok. I was just being real. Sorry it doesn't fit in to the "Paid Amateur" model people want. I'm an event planner. I would rather give back to every player with a massive event then give a few amateurs a payday. But what do I know?

Coming from a "ball golf" background, payouts to Amateur's are just silly IMHO.  Trophy's for the top spot, and maybe the top 3 depending on the Tier of the tournament is what I think.  You want a payout, move the heck up.  You typically get a schwag bag from beyond for showing up.  There shouldn't be a need to add to it with a payout on top of that.  Trophy only for Am's is the way it is there, and pretty much everything else you could/can compete in.  And yes, I play the Am side quite often.  If I win great, if I lose, go practice more.......I know this isn't going to be a popular post, but there, I said it.  Next.....  ;D

Get a room you  ;D

Ok...I lied....I just got signed up for this, and got one of the last remaining spots in MG1  ;D

This is the first tournament i'll have played before and i had a question that i'm hoping someone can answer for me. My girlfriend was wanting to come out and watch the tourney but i didn't know if she did whether she could walk the courses with me or if she would have to be somewhere else as a spectator? Do alot of people come out just to watch these kinds of things?

She'll be able to walk with ya', unless things have drastically changed since I lived there.  It's basically a flex type start, if I remember right.  As far as watching these kinds of things, I guess that would depend on who's on the  ;D

I'm leaning towards playing just the Wide Open in 2016.  I DO get an extra week of vacation this next year, but, too many other tourneys/"things" I want to do as well, besides kill off 2 of those weeks back to back.  ;D
