McBeth I can understand - you don't want to be playing a course where you're ripping full power drives at least 18 times four days in a row on a bum ankle.

McMahon is a little more interesting, he does well at this course. 2nd last year, 1st the year before. So a good place for him to grab some cash for sure.
I would then say it's because the course is boring, and he's been vocal about battling burnout. But he's still playing the Memorial, which seems like it would be just as boring.

McMahon probably is going to stick to the 2 main tours and not so many in between.

Has McMahon fully recovered from last years fisticuffs with Terra firma?

With some top players receiving more compensation from sponsors than what they can earn from a top finish in some events, I think we'll see these players (other than medical factors or other obligations) occasionally cherry picking which events they attend, even if the event is part of a tour, sometimes based on which manufacturer is lead sponsor and the type of course(s) being played that might negatively impact their rating (if their rating is tied to bonuses).

Perhaps some sponsors offer higher bonuses for finishes in their events and smaller or even no bonuses for finishes in competitors' events to discourage their popular players from showing up in the tournament videos partly or mainly underwritten by competitors? Conspiracy theory or just good business???
