Look at it this way, if the TDs are less on the hook regarding B-tier cash, they are more likely to sanction at that level since we've reduced their risk in case of a low turnout event. If enough pros show, they get their $500 cash added to the purse. No one from PDGA HQ is suggesting anything different. If they don't show, then the TD has more flexibility. What that means and when it can be used is TBD.
