Like a U.S. supreme court justice, I concur with your opinion Villagesgolfer. Under the rules of the PGA Tour, appearance fees are not allowed. My advice to readers of this thread is to dismiss this as only a rumor and hearsay. Tiger and Phil are using the Greenbrier Classic as preparation for the Open Championship later this month.
Not everything is about money when you are wealthy like those guys. :)
So true......plus they would have more to loose than gain in doing so......while they both have "life time membership" on the PGA Tour.....the consequences I'm sure would void that status!
Not on PGA Tour! Appearance fees have been paid for Asian & Australian tour events......
I don't think they got an "appearance" fee but they sure were inticed to be there. Benefits!!!!! I don't think Tiger would have played this tournament without incentives. And after Tom Watson makes the cut and makes a swipe at Tiger for missing the cut (TW) ( he did it indirectly) then I doubt Tiger will be back there. He and TW have no love lost between them
