Why did Minor League Golf invent the pass/fail format?

The point of the pass/fail event is to simulate competing in a golf tournament where you don't have to win, you just have to pass to reach the next level. Examples of this are attempting to make the cut after a mediocre first round, trying make it through a Q-School stage, or passing the PGA Playing Ability Test (PAT). The pass/fail format will help you to learn to grind it out and give it everything you have to "pass" instead of letting up a bit when you don't have your best on any given day.

Want to play for more money? No problem!

For those players that want to play for more money there is always a bonus pool option in the pass/fail format. The MLGT optional bonus pool always pays the top 33% and ties. 100% of the bonus pool entry goes into the bonus pool purse. Additionally there is an optional $20 skins game.

Sample Bonus Pool Payout (9 Players x $100 bonus pool entry)

1st $464, 2nd $300, 3rd $136
