It is very expensive to play on the tour. Travel costs and accommodation costs for you and your team, equipment costs and entry fees all contribute. Not to mention the cost of a fitness, coaching and management team. For players without sponcership, does anyone know how much a player must earn in prizemoney to break even?
shows that a lot of people earn a lot of money (205 players earned over US$100,000 in 2009) on tour, but I'm curious as to what their takings would be net
of expenses. I know it depends a lot on how big your team is and where you choose to tour, but some ballpark figures would be nice.
