I just played in the CrossCreek Open on the Golden State Pro Tour to gain some experience in the US. The tournament was played over three rounds with a two round cut. Unfortunately I missed the cut shooting 78-71 (+7).

The tour is based soley in California. It is a pay-for-play tour, with a buy in of US$1000 per event. At the moment they get around 70 players per event, well short of their desired 140 to create large enough purses to make it a profitable tour to play on. Mainly Californian professionals compete on the tour to keep their competitive juices flowing between other opportunities during the year.
