Las Vegas Gentlemen's Club Challenge

I was wondering why so many top pros skip this A-tier event?

Plus the Prodigy trio of Catrina, Sarah, and Paige. No Val, it looks like. Unless she's a late entry.

Many of the pros play the GCC in Vegas, then swing over to AZ for the Memorial the following week.

Looks like a pretty decent list of big names to me.

i think its a question of finances. i would imagine alot of pros who have "stationary" jobs skip on that tourny so they can go to memorial and other bigger tourns.

personally tho....for some reason, I want to play the GCC more than the Memorial. idk why

It tells you something about the Events in Vegas when you go from playing 30-40 Events a year to 12 last year (6 my own Events) and only 6 this year (2 my own Events) that 2 of them each year are in Vegas (GCC since 2nd year and Halloween Classic since 1999)!!!

This will be the first year since 1999 that I won't be playing the Bob West / Memorial Event.

I think it has more to do with that I think the Memorial courses look boring as heck.
