Strongly agree with that Chris but i am assured things will change for next year, half way there to getting me back.
Aside i hinted what this topic is about before this years GP's started, it went unaswered. Money spinner or training ground.
On the other hand, make courses easier the better shots will get bored and not bother turning up.
What you dont want is the lower grades coming in with scores close on the winning score of the day which is demoralising to the better shots.
