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)?

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..

    • “Well, nobody’s perfect.” Some Like It Hot.
    • Yeah, no. That only applies if you're not virtually certain it's in the penalty area.
    • I'd say the Rules allow the player to make his best judgement on this, look at 1.3b(2).
    • It’s kind of coulda woulda shoulda here don’t you think? The US team just played better for the most part in every session. Rahm played well but then lost to Scottie S in the singles. Rory played poorly, but he hasn’t been playing well lately compared to most of the US team. DJ, Morikawa, JT, BD, Koepka, Cantley all rose to the challenge. Even the coaches picks played well, Spieth, Berger and Harris. Westwood stunk it up when it counted, which is disappointing.  You can look back and come up with scenarios where the Euro team could have one, but I could also come up with the opposite and have the US winning more. It’s all just Monday Morning Quarterbacking. The OWGR is a pretty good indicator of a players ability to win. The Euro team had fine players, but not as good as the US plain and simple. And the US had better pairings and strategy. Looks at the list. Official World Golf Ranking - Ranking
