>>"Sure, a few of these guys get to play in the USGA Open each year, and one or two actually make the cut. For the other 99%, the CPNC is their national championship."

Ron Mon, Ron Mon, Ron Mon! I'm going to have to take back what I said about you here
As PGA Professionals, I assure you they don't consider the U.S. Open the highlight of their year. The low 20 scorers this weekend qualify to play in another annual tourney you might have heard of, the PGA Championship!

Hmmm...rings a bell...Oh yeah, I went to one a few years back at Oak Hill, and it was run ALMOST as well as the Opens I attended at Bethpage and Shinnecock. How about this...a patriotic national championship (Open) and a professional national championship (PGA)? Either way, for a club-pro guy like Wayne DeFrancesco, who does a bit of writing himself, the CPNC is their NC; the touring PGA is icing on the cake.
