I think that next year this issue will need to be revisited.
The "Qualifier" reg'ing early was a nice thought, BUT people reg'd any way AND nothing was done to correct it.
I "visited" the Pro/Am option ALL last year............
The MAIN issue with splitting weekends, from my "research" with the players, is the LOSS of the "Family" gathering. ALOT of PRO players travel with the AM players and like being able to do so.
IF the Series wants to GROW, it will need to happen. NOT all the events NEED to do this. BUT when there is only 1 course it sure would help.
AM sides would easily fill, Pro events would be "less stressed" and would most likely pull the top AMs as well. ONLY GNW & the Celebration are the events that COULD really benefit from this, being they are both played at 1 venue
The cost increase would be minimal (Seperate Sanctioning & Insurance)
AND Park fees where applicable (which could be significant in certain cases)
