I believe its a bit of a cycle effect... there will be so many spots open on pga (to make them have 150 active players). They will then take those who move from Euro and make them have 150 active players... and then those that move from web and make them have 150 active and so on.
How many spots in each division is tba until the pga number and who gets in determined.
Of course, I could be way off.. lol, but that was my understanding.
I'm guessing around 30 to go into PGA, that should get the numbers up around 150 active.
How will it work for knowing who gets promoted into the PGA if there are no PGA players taking part as a baseline?
Wouldn't it have been easier to have anyone on Euro or Web who doesn't have a demotion mark to play the PGA event and if they would have made the cut then they get promoted, or if it's going to be 100 players then combine the PGA players with all the non PGA for a new top 70 and take those. If theres still too many then limit to how many were needed, say 20 and take those.
Guess the same could be done for CC-Pro playing on Web for that week and CC-am playing on CC-Pro?
Best scores will move up. I'm not worried that the best scores in a promotion event can't compete for cuts - anyone getting promoted to a new tour should be able to clear demotion marks with good play.
Hang on. So someone who does a Q School this week and does badly can try again when someone who has played every week and has 1 bad week getting a demotion mark cannot? Bit harsh if you ask me!
It's going to happen - not much we can do about it when we run Q-School weekly. Anytime we add special rules it requires Tim to code - it's not worth the time/effort with so much else needing to be done. There will be two promotion events where people with demotion strikes can participate.

With the change to club set rules, can I use Pro clubs in the Promotion Event and be eligible to get promoted from CC-A to Web? Or do I need to use Masters clubs in this event? As I understand, in the CC-A event this week, I could qualify for a Promotion Mark if I score well enough using Pro clubs.
