I generally don't watch golf only cuz I extremely suck at the sport.......so...in reality I can't tell you what is what and who pays who.....other than they get a ridiculous amount of money to play.....

"Google" says.... In 2011, the entry fee was $150.

But that sounds kinda low to me but, I'm not a golfer, I play Pool. Our US Open 9 Ball Championships fee is $500.
