so perhaps that did factor in the decision - she's already hiring a coach to travel with her, so that certainly helps offset some expenses
WoW, I have no doubts that Mallory has the tools for the tour. I am surprised how easy it was for her to flip-flop on the amateur status mid-tournament.

Part of me says "that's great, she earned it"

Another part of me thinks it's dangerous for other juniors to see it can be done mid-tournament. I envision an 18 y/o WC getting on an unsustainable hot streak and taking a few thousand bucks. That'd be it for college for a kid without the tools Mallory has.
