The US Open is Open. If you have the entry fee, you are invited. Now,
"will they come?" is a horse of a different color.

No, it is around $500 US (it may be more this year, I'm not sure).
Past winners entry is paid by Barry. Some have sponsors that pay the
fee, some pay it out of pocket. Once the field fills up, that's it.
The last 2 years the field has not filled, I don't think, but was
close. Someone from another country would need more than just the
entry. There is hotel, food, and airline tickets, plus other things.
Without a sponsor, it would be difficult to enter if you have to come
far and have a tight budget.
Oh .. don't worry about money, some of them will for sure
be there supported and funded by half of the city from
where they live.
You know Asian ... they are not individualistic.....
