Any professional who fails to notify the TSPGA in advance of not showing for an event will automatically forfeit his/her entry fee. The following formula will be used to make entry fee refunds: The full amount of the entry fee minus a $25.00 transaction fee will be refunded.
B. PRO-AM EVENT
Any Professional that cancels 7 or more days prior to Pro-Am that professional will incur a $50.00 cancellation fee.
Any professional that cancels within 7 days of the event date – the cancellation fee will be 50% of the Pro-Am event entry fee . If the tournament spot is filled off the waitlist the professional will be charged a $50.00 cancellation fee.

Once a team wins a TSPGA Pro-3 Amateur, the professional is only permitted to bring back as playing partners
two (2) of the original winning team members for future Pro-3 Am events. Once an amateur has won twice with
the same professional, playing partner, he is NOT permitted to play with that professional, as an amateur partner,
for the remainder of the calendar tournament season.
Penalty for non-compliance will be disqualification and suspension from all TSPGA events for one (1) calendar year.

Failure to ask permission will be considered a breach of the PGA Code of Ethics. The penalty will be suspension from all TSPGA Events for one (1) calendar year.
