That's the one that has 320 people in it, where the top 20 make the PGA Championship.

That one is on TV, too.   Enjoyable to watch.  

That said, it’s all about practice.   Most club pros work.  You can’t play pga events if you work.  Work steals practice time.  

Erik, you’re a plus index, right?  If you forfeit the money you earn and spent 8 hours a day practicing, do you think you have a chance to play web.com? If you play web.com (or lesser) then you find out if you can compete at that level.  Maybe you can, maybe you can’t.  But, from what I understand, unless you quit your job and focus every ounce of effort, you can put yourself in a position to find out, if you’re talented enough. 

Right(ish)?

Elections apparently take a few days… even though everything should be pretty automatic. I meet all of the requirements, so I should be in with about ten seconds of double-checking. But it took a few

Well, today I passed all of my Level 3 tests for the PGA apprentice (or "associate"?) program. I emailed in my application for membership, and the next election date is apparently July 2. So far as I

I'm 40.

Why on earth would I sacrifice my day to day life, my family time, etc. to chase a dream against 22-year-olds and such?

Not suggesting you would.  Only trying to relate what it takes.  

I think I’m well aware of what it takes to play on the pga.  (No im not, but I understand how far away I am from understanding), but comments from others lead me to believe they think it’s closer than it is.   Maybe if the best golfer on this site (arguably) mentioned how far away he is, it might clear some stuff up.    Not to say you haven’t, but some folks haven’t got it..

    • How many women have been timed over 1500m in a pool? Not THAT many. Why wouldn't she dominate the times in this event - given that she is so impressively dominant? How many people have played golf competitively? I'll bet 99.9% of people you see on the street couldn't tell you who Oksana Chusovitina is. As for women's swimming, Shane Gould is the only person, male or female, to hold EVERY world freestyle record from 100m to 1500m  + 200m IM SIMULTANEOUSLY. (1972)
    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
