The interest -- things I thought we we compared not only your earnings vs prior years it's obviously it's going up.
But vs the men's side in the number two earner on the on the tour right now.
In the men's side Mickelson happens to be that guy and he makes more than three times as much a com.
I don't know you know it's a good question I think that are are turned -- of increase in number.
And I think that the purses have grown gone up I think that -- toward growing but we're still.
You know ways away from where we -- where we think we deserve to be.
It beats you see a day where where it's the same you know the top winners on both sides -- Are paid equally.

You know fifteen years ago that play -- or -- events -- about a 110220.
And this past year there were.
Warning Americans the plates servants ten events -- more on tour so.
