I put my foot in the water last year by entering a men's open tournament during the summer just to see where I stood. I went in with low expectations of just not getting double bageled, and I came out ok. For 2010 I was thinking of putting together a mini schedule and try a handful of tournaments, maybe win a round and establish a year end ranking of some kind. I wanted to get some insight/stories/experiences from other open players. How many tournaments a year? Farthest away you travel to play? Perhaps an estimated yearly cost with the tournament entry fees and equipment you go through?
