  9. Most people who try to become a professional in sports end up failing. Most as in more than 99%. Minor tours have purses based on entry fees. So a crazy idea is to find and gambler that puts money on you (say US$ 1000 per week), and they get a share of your prize money (say 75%). Last year, Augusto Núñez played 16 tournaments at the PGA Tour Latinoamérica (so a gambler would invest 16 k), and he won 150 k (so the gambler would get 110 k).
  10. There are 55 foreign players at the Players: British & Irish: Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, Shane Lowry, Tyrrell Hatton, Paul Casey, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Danny Willett, Matt Wallace, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Russell Knox, Martin Laird.Continental Europeans: Jon Rahm, Bernd Wiesberger, Henrik Stenson, Sergio García, Francesco Molinari, Victor Perez, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Viktor Hovland, Rory Sabbatini, Sepp Straka.Aus & NZ: Adam Scott, Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith, Jason Day, Danny Lee, Matt Jones, Aaron Baddeley.South Africans: Louis Oosthuizen, Erik van Rooyen, Christ
  11. Last fall, the PGA Tour had 11 weeks of tournaments (not counting the Presidents Cup). Justin Thomas, Adam Scott and DeChambeau played 4 PGA Tour events. Webb Simpson, Cantlay, Reed and Fleetwood played 3 PGA Tour events. Many other top players entered two, one or zero tournaments.
  12. "BTW the Kerry Packer comparison doesnt hold water to me because the argument for him starting out was always that cricket players could not make a good living playing cricket and thats what he aimed to change. No one would make that argument about the PGA Tour players. 25 years ago this would have been a serious problem for the PGA Tour etc. but now, given the financial landscape in top level golf, I don't see this coming to fruition. Very skeptical when ideas like this are leaked without anything concrete in place." Exactly. Kerry Packer could hire the best players because they were paid pen
  13. "The PGA Tour opted for long-term deals that will run for nine years from 2022-2030" "CBS and NBC will produce the FedEx Cup Playoffs in alternating years." "NBC will carry the playoffs five times and CBS will carry them four times" NBC has the Olympics on even years. CBS airs the NCAA Final Four on odd years. So it seems to me that they will air the FedEx Cup Playoffs on those same years.
