I've heard of some kids who will fly to some podunk town to get through qualifies.  For a few it actually worked and they are advancing to Augusta.  A lot of time and money.......

I know of a kid based out of Dallas that does her compititions in Minnesota. No idea why but my only guess to find an easier path. No way I would fly anywhere for a 10 min competition.

C'mon,  It takes more than 5 minutes just to get the kids gathered at the putting green and announce the rules. :taunt:   I would say 10-15 minutes at each station was the average.

We didn't have that.  Just wait in a line for your turn and at the end they told you the score.

Why not just buy tickets to the Master's then?

The parents that do this want the bragging rights. There the same parents who is at a local PGA event will snap a picture with a pro and then act like they are best buds on Facebook.

Some of them around here also have charities so there kids can play in tournaments for free and this helps them raise money as well.

If you can get your hands on tickets, does your child get to DCP on the property? with the event being televised?  Oh and how much are tickets because as we all know DCP is free.  

I'm in the minority it seems, but I thought the process was fun.  This was my son's first time competing and he made it a lot further than I ever thought.  Luckily all 3 qualifiers were fairly close to us.  No way in hell would I hop in a plane for a sub or regional.    Is DPC a true test of golf?  Of course not.  Is there a lot of luck involved?  Hell Yes.  That said, I'm sure my son will keep doing it for years to come.

No problem getting tickets to the masters it is not cheap but anyone who belongs to a country club tcan pretty much get them. Also if you have an Amex card they will hook you up.

I have decided to not even mention it to my kid this year.  Enough advertising on TV.  If he wants to play, he can ask me.
