I compounded the problem by not using terms/values DG know and accept. Instead of the word "cut" or Yoduh's (Scam) I should have just listed every deduction as well as the per player fee I intended to charge. Each of which was a conscience decision I made along the way. Judge me on those choices and their value and what you received not on how you felt.
I'd like to beleive that by posting the financial page of the tournament paperwork clears up any controversy.
That I set a precedent that all TD's make this page of their paperwork publicly available
Will I do it differently next time? Certainly. but will be for free? No.
One thing is for sure
Now when everyone of you looks at payouts you will pay more attention. If you see something you don't like say it then.
This is a learning moment. Can we survive with innuendo and conjecture? Online sure, but in the real world No.
By offering transparency we will see just how efficient our TD's are, what and how they assign value to their efforts. Our biggest challenge is to actually get golfers to respond with feedback

Or you can fill out this online survey as a local option with improvement as it's goal. I do want to thank the 3 who have responded
