Jeez, no it's not clear, where does it say in any single TD document that added cash is to go to the pro purse? Please reference this for me. I'll beat ya to it. The only document that defines added cash per say is the Electronic TD report.
And what does it say, under the 'Instructions' tab, ProPayout AmJrPayout
For Am divisions, the dollar amounts and "added cash" for the payouts are based on retail merchandise values.
Furthermore, if you review the 'Am.Jr.Payout' tab, under each division it says Enter Added Cash (or deduction) here*>
This argument that the term "added cash" is explicitly coined as cash to be added to pro purse, is not supported in not one single PDGA document. I've given you two examples above where the term "added cash" is not cash only to be added to the pro purse.
My argument here is not necessarily directed at you Chuck, but the loosely defined TD documents that are written by the Flintstones. So if 98 Ams sign up in a B-tier and only 2 Pros sign up, you really think that the $500 has to go all to those two "Pros"? I implore the PDGA to provide TD instructions that clearly define added cash as you suggest.
