My point is that one of the criticisms of too many lucrative restricted field events on the tour is that they are unfair on those many pros that aren't allowed to compete. Now we have a situation where two players are qualifying for a very lucrative restricted field event via another very restricted field event, where they only entered that one because of China being allowed to have two teams.
What next, a Masters entry based on who got to the final of the Champion of Champions event, where entry to the champion of champions event is via the World Cup, where entry to the world cup is via a wild card based on your country, where your eligibility for wild cards is based on...
Meanwhile, most pros have to try to win gruelling 128 field events to get any glory at all on the tour. Far less chance of winning those.
