Aloha! PGA Tour Season Ready To Begin, Again, With Tournament Of Champions
Published January 3, 2014
MISSING THE BIG GUNS: In Toledo, Fred Altvater writes the Tournament of Champions lately "just does not deliver the goods." Even with a Friday start and a Monday finish to "avoid going head to head with the NFL playoffs, fans have grown weary of the event." Part of the "problem is the lack of participation by the best players." The PGA Tour has "made the June to September schedule a priority," and to "get the big guns to change their schedule and come and play in Hawaii, something has to change." If the PGA Tour "really wants to compete against NFL football in the U.S, it needs to add some zing to its first tournament of the calendar year." Hyundai is "not getting nearly what they have paid for and golf fans need something to get them excited in between watching football and shoveling snow" (TOLEDO FREE PRESS, 1/3).
