Can u explain?- I know Sarah Rousey has to win a qualifier to play in a Pro event but Megan Smith seems to play in all events without winning qualifiers any more so how does this work? She is pro but wont stay pro unless she gets that point? What is difference between she and Sarah Rousey?

Sarah Rousey and Megan Smith are both Semi-Pros. The difference is that Megan is ranked higher than Sarah and thus get invited to some of the events based on her overall tour ranking. When a player gets 4 pro points (top half finishes) in the last 10 tournaments they become a "PRO".

Once you are a pro and have competed in at least 80% of the last 10 events, and have 2 pro points, you are classified as a Touring Pro.

2 Pro points + 80% participation = Touring Pro
1 Pro point + 50% participation = Active Pro
Pro with no pro points = Pro
Pros and Semi Pros are invited strictly by ranking.

I hope this helps,

I was mistaken about the following...

Sarah Rousey needs 3 pro points in next 8 tournaments.

If a player is trying to get her Pro status and points "drop off", then she has keep getting more pro points until there are 4 in the last 10 WPBA tournaments.

If the player is already a "Pro", she has to maintain 2 pro points + 80% participation (at all times) to keep her Touring Pro status, and 1 pro point + 50% to keep her Active Pro status.

If a player falls below the 80% + 2 level she automatically drops down to an Active Pro. If a player has less than 50% participation she will be invited right along side the semi-pros, her "Pro" status not giving her any advantage.
