Today I am curious (okay, a lot of days I am curious, lol). But today I am curious if I am the only one. I haven't taken an official poll of all my female friends, but most of my female friends want to play on the pro tour (the WPBA) and/or want to become a pro player.
The Regional Tour Championships (RTC) location and date are finally set. I am eligible to go b/c I am ranked 9th on the OB Cues Ladies Tour. Out of 64 players, if I finish in the top 9 at the RTC, I will get a spot on the WPBA tour next year.
However, I am not interested. I would only be going to the RTC to support my friends. If I happened to luck out to get in the top 9, I suppose I would go to the pro events, but why? I would be taking a spot of someone that REALLY wants a spot.
I truly wonder if I am one of the few female players out there who love pool so much that it is an integral part of their lives, but yet doesn't want to be a pro or even play on the pro tour? Pool is a passion for me, yet I don't want to be a pro. Isn't that kinda weird?
