Half the field being performance based... That is lame, this was the one tournament with one division and one champion, it was a dream of every state level pro to qualify and play against the best in the world at the best test of a players skill set, against the other top 180 players in the world. Now cut it down to 72? I understand that with a rating in the 990s I would never win USDGC but the chance to compete in it and fight to cash in it would be a challenge I have always wanted to acheive, looks like that wont happen now. Sounds like the 70 or so top touring players will take those spots, and maybe im in the minority but as an open player, I want nothing to do with a performance based division. I want to see if my game is good enough to beat the other pro's in my division, i dont want strokes from anyone and i dont want to give strokes to anyone.
Bad move in my opinion
