Best Answer

PGA Tour members do not pay entry fees to play in PGA Tournaments. Other nonmembers pay an entry fee of $400.


1) The Masters is by invitation only

2) No entry fee for the PGA Championship

3) Players pay an entry fee of $125 for the U.S. Open qualifying

4) An entry fee for the British Open is $162.

Actually all events have an entry fee and all professionals pay, regardless of status on tour. This includes current members of the PGA Tour. The fee is typically $400. This is an "out of pocket" expense that is not reimbursed by the Tour.

What are handicaps?

In order to allow new and poorer golfers to play with experienced and skilled golfer's their difference is more equalized by subtracting strokes from the poorer golfers score and perhaps adding some to the better golfer's score. The equalizing amount subtracted or added is called the player's handicap.Calculating a handicap is a little involved and is done different in different places. Think of it as taking the average strokes professional golfers take to complete a given golf course, and subtract this number from the ordinary player's score. Some percentage of this difference is the player's handicap and it will be subtracted from (or added to) his score for the game that day.Professional golfers at tournaments don't have handicaps. The play Scratch, meaning their actual strokes is their score -- no handicap.
