  1. > @"Raving Shanker" said: > I don't know. I just want to say this is something I wonder about also - the pure economics of how the tour works. The 100th ranked LPGA player only earns about $100k in a year. If they had to pay for their own equipment, hotels and accommodation their annual expenditure would be over that amount. Exactly. I read a article once where a tour player said it cost him around $300,000 per year to play the tour . Travel , caddies , coaches etc . So how do these low end level girls survive . Even if they make $200,000 in earnings that puts them in the negative .
  2. Question I have is what do you think these girls make in endorsements. Half of them look like walking billboards with sponsors all over them . I know it varies but let’s say for sake of conversation a really high end player and a girl who fights to keep her card . What do you all think they are earning in sponsorship money??

  7. Anyone else find tbis new group of young stars very Boring and cookie cutter . A bunch of kids who seem entitled and show hardly any enthusiasm when they win or anger when they play poorly. Groomed thru the junior golf programs its like they feel entitled to win and its expected. I miss the firey nature of tiger . Fist pumping when he made a huge putt or slamming clubs when he played bad . At least he looked engaged . Payne stewart, corey pavin a couple more of my all time favorites these guys had the fire Sorry but JT, koepka , rory , jordan just dont do it for me and honestly i have wa
