McIlroy To Play Mainly In Europe In '11
Rory McIlroy may be the next big thing on the global golf landscape, but U.S. fans will not have as many opportunities to watch him play as the 21-year-old will not renew his PGA Tour card next season. McIlroy says he will “play 11 or 12” tournaments in the States, but he joins world No. 1 Lee Westwood and most likely ’10 PGA Championship winner Martin Kaymer in not seeking his tour card for the American circuit. The trend of top European talent playing the majority of their schedule on their home continent could have some large ramifications for the PGA Tour. With Tiger and Phil struggling as Tim Finchem is about to open TV talks, the loss of enthusiasm that McIlroy et al bring to the course could harm the PGA Tour’s coffers.
