So its ok with the moderator for someone to click quote, then remove the quote and write in what ever they want. That way when others read the quote, they'll think the person wrote that when they didn't.
That's no way to run a forum
I think if you wanted to continue actual discussions on making this viable, you'd have to first address how to get the USGA to lighten up their rules on amateur vs pro status and the prizes you're allowed to win, which if I'm reading correctly, is only $750.
Without that rule change, other conversations are pointless. I'd love to see bigger amateur events, but it just won't happen because as others have pointed out, the rules don't allow it.
