It's not just we people, you know. In virtually every sport that comes to mind there are people who compete, often fiercely, in organized events without the expectation of payouts for winning.
The very distinction between an organized "Tournament!" and a friendly competition on my local course, is why I'm willing to pay for the chance to compete in a tournament.
