WHO'S SILLY NOW? In N.Y., John Paul Newport wrote this time of year until recently was "known as golf's silly season," but the world's top players now "barnstorm the globe picking up humongous checks, from both prize purses and appearance fees, in unlikely places like Turkey, China and the United Arab Emirates." Several "silly season staples remain," but now these "made-for-TV filler events are increasingly overshadowed by the never-ending roster of global mega-events." The "biggest change to silly seasons is that they are no longer about pro golfers kicking back at the end of the year and grabbing a little extra spending money." Pro golf is "becoming a big-deal global sports juggernaut" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/9).
