LOWERING THE MINIMUM: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Rex Hoggard reported a byproduct of the PGA Tour’s move to a "split-calendar season beginning with the 2013-14 schedule will be a temporary reduction in a player’s minimum number of starts." Due to the "loss of the fall series events, which will now kick off the new season, players in 2013 will only need 12 starts to maintain their status as voting members." The minimum had been 15 starts (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 10/22). Golf Channel's Whit Watson said, "I think you try it for a year and see what happens. This is a special exemption because of a shortened schedule January to September.” Golf Channel's Damon Hack added, “I don’t want to commit to anything until I see it in action and in real time, but I have a feeling that they're going to keep that number low” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 10/22).
