It's a bit frustrating for me this year. I don't feel things were broken in the past. You were either Pro, Am, Gray, or Female. Having the payout in KC Kash for the Ams encouraged some of the borderline players to play in the Open division. On many occasions last year we ran an Intermediate as well for new players and usually a score of around 60 had a chance to cash. So far this year it's either been all Pro2 or all Am for the non-Open, under 40, male players at WW depending on the week. The past two weeks we have not had an AM division at all.
The way I understand it the goal of adding Pro2 was to do away with the Masters division but so far at WW it has only affected the Ams and encouraged some of the Open players to move down. I don't see Masters going away be it 40 or 50.
I realize it's up to us and we can offer any divisions we see fit. I think in the short term I am going to try to offer Pro1, Pro2, Masters, Women, and add an Intermediate too. I thinks it's important to have some sort of an Am division to get new players to join us. I imagine it's a bit intimidating when your only option as a beginner starts with the word Pro.
