New PGA Tour Schedule Could Help Fall Tourneys, But Improved Fields Not Guaranteed

A GOOD WALK SPOILED? ESPN.com's Bob Harig wrote, "A new PGA Tour season is underway and Tiger Woods is not exactly sure what to make of it." Woods on Tuesday said, "For me, I'm still wrapping my head around it. ... I think it's going to take a little bit of time to get accustomed to. Some of the guys are playing in the local areas ... some are going overseas. This is something that is very different to us in our sport. Other sports it's the norm." Woods added, "The whole idea of ending the season earlier was to give us a break. ... It's going to be interesting to find our break time now with this scheduling" (ESPN.com, 10/15).
VEGAS, BABY: In Las Vegas, Steve Carp noted this year's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is "proving to have one of its strongest fields in years," with six players who "have won majors, six who are in the top 50 in the World Golf rankings, six who participated in the recent President's Cup and 23 who have won on Tour in the past two years." It "didn't hurt having an upgraded purse" of $6M, with the winner earning $1.8M (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 10/14).
