Playing A Fivesome: Roundtable Of PGA Tour Players Discuss Sport's Top Issues
Published March 4, 2011
COMMISH FOR A DAY: Van Sickle asked the panel what they would change if they could be commissioner of the PGA Tour for one day. Golfer Ben Crane said, "Not a thing. Just keep doing what we're doing." Henry noted the Super Bowl "moves around every year" and wondered whether the FedExCup playoffs could follow suit. Henry: "Why couldn't, say, Hartford and the BMW Championship switch spots on the calendar for a year? ... Let everyone have a chance to host a playoff event, not just the same cities every year." Love said he would "make the Nationwide tour bigger, make it the way to get to the regular Tour instead of qualifying school." Purdy would "increase the fields at all the big-dollar events." Purdy: "Why limit the fields at the World Golf Championships to 60 or 70 players?" Flesch agreed with Purdy, adding the fields for WGC events "should be bigger -- at least 120 players." He added, "And I'd add a cut so they're not freebies anymore" (SI GOLF+, 3/7 issue).
