I for one think it’s time that for the price we are paying to play in the W/AM and the Prizes being given in each flight needs a facelift you win your flight and you can’t even get a new driver unless you come off the hip with more cash. Most every course that has a tournament now is giving 750 or more when you win your flightSeptember 6, 2023 at 10:23 am #52429Glenn FosterParticipant
I like the revamp idea!! Maybe pay top 10, and increase top 5 payout as well. We have to use it at the sponsors’ store/site so they are still recouping 50%+ from the purchase of goods with the card value.
Maybe giving something else away besides gift cards there as well. Entertainment venues and Restaurants should be getting in on some gifts to give families here to try new places.
Dupont use to give away a Toyota car/truck to a winner in a drawing. Everyone that paid the entry fee, got a chance. (I know that company was humongous sponsor…) Why not try a local dealer for some community love? This tournament is way to big to not let other sponsors feel included for the weekend before it , and after. Is their some proprietary thing where PGA Superstore can be the only one?
Revamping the the prize scale is way overdue, like I said, you can’t spend it anywhere else, and the actual “prize money”, with PGA Superstore making back more than they award. A top ten finish should still be rewarded from 6th-10th. It is a good enough finish for something, especially since they have probably played to their truer handicap anyway.September 6, 2023 at 11:04 am #52430John DecaturParticipant
I believe amateurs can win up to $750.00 before they would have to relinquish amateur status. I like the idea of increasing the top prize to $750.00 and increasing payment to top 10. The only problem is you have certain individuals who have found ways to beat the system and win their flight many times. I was curious if you are DQ’d on Friday do you lose the $600.00 and trophy you won for winning your flight?September 6, 2023 at 11:13 am #52431Ricky HermanParticipant
He should of been DQ on Thursday because he took a spot from the guy who should be in first.September 6, 2023 at 1:17 pm #52432Mike CheesemanParticipant
I totally agree with you Ricky. He shouldn’t be allowed to enter any tournaments with his BS index. And we all know who we are talking about.September 7, 2023 at 8:39 am #52433Glenn FosterParticipant
M & R, not everyone knows who you’re talking about so…I’m guessing overall winner or a flight winner?September 7, 2023 at 9:09 am #52434Keith StephensParticipant
Great question, John. Since the rules clearly state that if you are DQ’d you are ineligible for prizes, I would assume (and hope) that he would not collect his gift card or Flight Winner’s plaque.September 7, 2023 at 11:16 am #52436Mark HancockParticipant
You guys are spot on. The player DQ’d in the finals was a 10 handicapper and shot a 74. He’s won his flight multiple times, so the fix is obviously on. Congratulations to the WA staff for making the correct decision. I hope that the 2nd place player(s) in that guy’s flight got moved up to 1st place and will receive the 1st place money. It is unfortunate that they didn’t get to play in the finals.September 8, 2023 at 8:59 pm #52447Lindy SullivanParticipant
He should never be allowed to play event again, and revoke his sham of a 2020 win as well.. dude is a loserSeptember 9, 2023 at 2:27 pm #52448John MudrockParticipant
Has anyone even noticed that Mr. Harry (the hack) Radley has not even responded on the BB about his improprieties and inflated handicap due to his supposed health issues? I also agree with the assesment of most of the responses about not letting him enter any longer. As has been stated he got away with it in 2020 when won. Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen again.September 11, 2023 at 9:15 am #52449Tom McCainParticipant
A 30 that shoots a low net 2 of 5 rounds gets my attention. How often should that happen?September 11, 2023 at 5:47 pm #52450Raymond AbernathyParticipant
How about a new trophy for the World Am?The Perpetual Harry Radley trophy, “The Golden Sandbag”.
