Rich Beem is “insulted,” he’s insulted by the new AT&T National tournament to be hosted by Tiger Woods in DC on the week of July 4th. The previous tournament in DC had an open field, and that’s what Beem and other are complaining about. “It’s the most totally wrong thing I’ve heard of in a long time that’s sticking it to the players,” Beem said.

“I was shocked when I heard that,” Brad Faxon said. “We’ve got players looking for spots, and we’re replacing a tournament that had a full field. With the amount of tournaments we have that are invitationals, it doesn’t make sense to do more.” There already are at least 7 “invite only” tourneys on the tour. So if you’re not that good or can’t get an invite, how are you supposed to make a living on tour?
