FOREIGN AFFAIRS: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Rex Hoggard wrote there is an “up side” for both the European and PGA Tours if a "mega-merger occurred." The "financially challenged European Tour would be reinvigorated by the Tour’s deep pockets," and PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem and the Tour would "get a stronger foothold in Asia and a piece of the Ryder Cup, which is jointly owned by the PGA of America and European Tour."
