after reading most of the posts, don't some of you think that when the popularity of the sport grows, then so will the amount of money in each division? For instance in Ball Golf the pro's pay around 20K to play in each tourney (minus the "championship events"), but the pay outs are far more than the total entry fee. Sponsorships and marketing will create the void of "unfairly" seen payouts thus making the other levels of play (buy.com tour, seniors tour, hooters tour) have higher pay outs as well. Tom Watson can still ball at age 60, but prefers his partners to be of the same understanding, not some Ricky Fowler stright brimmed hat wearing kid hitting (or throwing) it passed him 100 yards (or feet) while jamming out to Beiber on his Beats headphones. Now not to say that young Ricky wouldnt respect Mr. Watson and appreciate playing with him, but hopefully my broken explanation is understood. I think that the Open division will soon be expensive to play in thus forcing players that are not sponsored or rich to play in advanced men's or if eligible into the masters division, BUT i also think when this happens that the money for the other divisions will grow as well because there has to be a way to prove who can and or should be in the Open division. Anything beyond that I think is a personal choice. If you dislike Gen Y'ers then you will probably play in the Masters Division, but if your main goal is money and fame then you will play in the Open division.
