    So that's why most of the top-ranked men on the PGA tour skipped Rio...

    I say kudos to him for doing this. It's easy to make it a joke, but this guy's what triathletes should strive to emulate IMO.

    How many pro triathletes would turn themselves in while staring at an immediate gross cash earnings loss of at least 30-40k?????? (Most would be so starry eyed at that figure of course, but consider even those who are making that much.....)

    Stats say he played 18 events in 2017 on PGA tour, making 166k USD. That's about 9k per event average. It's acually 16.6k since he made the cut in only 10, thus only had money potential in 10. But for purposes of probability, his self-imposed suspension will cause him to miss at least 3 or 4 events. PGA was nice enough to make it retroactive to Nov. 30th, but he typically plays several events in Jan/Feb.

    I'd buy him a beer for sure.
