Is it just that I am in Fl.and follow it more than the others or do more players make the WPBA from this regional tour than any of the others?

it is a pretty good tour but probably does not have the all around depth of good players that are found up north. Just my guess. All the top players qualify and then leave and go play in the WPBA. I see Helene Caulkin is doing quite well lately.

Johnny,

In all fairness I think this tour attracts a lot of serious players because we offer at least 8 events per year within a 200 mile radius. Doesn't the Spirit Tour cover just about ALL of Florida? That's a lot of mileage and traveling! And I have to give two thumbs up for ALL of the other tours that cover state like Minnesota, California, Texas, and the Northwest corner of the US!!

Yes the Spirit Tour does cover all of Florida.I see your point and agree.

Another one on the JPNEWT is Julie Kelly. I say she will be in top 10 on WPBA points list at the end of 2005.

I believe Kelly Fisher and Val Finney made it to a couple of their events as well. Kelly will be challenging Karen and Allison within a year for the top spots.
That's my prediction and I'm stickin' to it! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I meant Kelly Fisher not Julie Kelly. I have to stay off this computer when I have no sleep.
