And then there is no benefit to having lower rated players on your team! That format was created by Rolland so he could get all of the best Pro Masters together on one team and beat everybody. And when someone else made a similar team to compete he took his trophy and went home.
We could go back to that format, but then I'd have to institute new rules to force each team to have 1 MPO, 1 MMO, 1 MA1, 1 MA2, 1 MA3, 1 Female and 1 'extra' player from any division. I'd prefer to let people make their own teams with their friends and handicap it by PDGA rating to make it competitive.
And as Sam mentioned we are still having dubs as long as enough team members show up to each match.
