Professional Tournament Schedules - 11-15-2006, 12:47 AM

I have to ask:

Why is every tour in this country compelled to start competitions in the middle of the week so that they end Sunday night instead of starting them at the beginning of a weekend and having it end Tuesday or Wednesday?

I mean, the professional player does not care if it's Monday, Wednesday or Saturday. There is no work-week for them. But the remaining 50-75% of the field that DOES have a job would like it if they could just take a normal weekend and call-in-sick if they make it to the 3rd day. It's just a crummy way to burn up one's vacation time.

I'm just curious if there's some ridiculously obvious logic that I'm missing because every tour does it and there's not a weekend-warrier out there that likes it.
