I don't think it is solely based on whether the event is PDGA sanctioned or not, but I do think it is largely based on the overall perception of the "legitimacy" of the tournament itself. In this case, a one day tournament at Timber park doesn't feel like the legitimate way to crown the state champion.
What do I think a legitimate state championship tourney looks like?
- 2 days
- played on 1 or more of the state's premier courses (could rotate every year)
- PDGA sanctioned, since that is the sport's governing body
