On #3, what if a sponsor really liked someone (say, Michelle Wie) at #101 on the money list and invited her into the Korean event at the end of the season? Should she knock out of the top 100 or top 80 someone who wouldn't get that kind of opportunity?

On #2, Hound Dog's got that covered. Shin's wins are official and do count toward her HOF total. All the LPGA does is draw a line between pre-member and member wins.

On #1, the 10 years' rule is kind of dumb, come to think of it. I guess the argument could be made it rewards longevity or something like that, but I won't make it.

Here is the deal. I really don’t think the first rule you mentioned is all that silly. Imagine the scenario on some of the tours and their nascent stage where a top finish on the order of merit list might open the door to a lot of other tournaments. Now if someone like Tiger Woods, plays a big money Asian Tour and makes a load of money, much more than the other members who might have played the tour the rest of the season, it does not mean you can make him the order of merit champion. It is exactly the reason why they have such a reason in place that ensures that the order of merit is a fairly balanced method to determine the most successful player on tour each year. Once Jiyai Shin becomes an LPGA Tour regular then this problem will never arise.

In the second case, however, I completely agree with you. The decision to induct someone into the hall of fame must be completely based on merit and not a farcical criteria of waiting for the hair to grey before they make someone a hall of fame member.

One or two prospects did n't quite strain my level of understanding at first, but after that several indications I wish to see I affirm.
