I came across this piece in GD from top writer Alex Myers highlighting how difficult it is for the hundreds of players, men and women, out there on the smaller Tours, grinding away just trying to hit the big time.

It's a must read for anybody thinking of becoming a touring pro.

Llaneza said entry fees on the Symetra Tour are $500 per tournament. A caddie costs an additional $500-800. And if you're lucky enough to make a cut, there's no guarantee you'll even break even for the week. "The old joke on the tour is, 'My caddie made more than me this week. They’re buying dinner,'" Llaneza said. Llaneza's piece is titled "Let the Rattlesnake deal with me," a reference to the former Arizona Wildcat risking her health to go into the desert to retrieve golf balls. And then there are travel expenses.
