There is no reason that what has happened in China cannot happen elsewhere, and it helps if they have a local player that gets some coverage in their own country. The more exclusive the club the less global appeal it will have in my view.
But Qualifying through Africa or Australasia or America will not make these players ready for life on tour they got to mix it with the best and the Best Amataur players are Chinese and British.
its counter productive having a rubbish player from Brazil that wont encourage anyone to get their cue out in Brazil.
it will mean more if they can do the traveling and Qualify via World Amateur or Q School rather than playing a mate in a rio club.
we got to strive for best possible players on tour and not because you got born in Australia or America
there are better british players that has never played on tour than some that have and all because of their nationality.
