League Notes

PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua in a video released to its 28,000 members on Wednesday said that the organization has been "conducting studies for the last four years on whether to move the PGA Championship from August to May." Bevacqua said that he will "meet with his executive board later this month at Sunriver in Oregon, the site of the PGA Club Pro Championship, to give more of an update." He "repeated the motivation for moving the PGA, to avoid conflicts every four years with Olympic golf" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 6/8).

FAR EASTERN CONFERENCE? NBA 2K esports league Managing Dir Brendan Donohue said that the league has "no plans at this time to expand" its upcoming esports venture into the Chinese market. Donohue: "The NBA is not actively planning a separate esports league in China" (ESPN.com, 6/8). NBA China CEO David Shoemaker had said that the league is "looking into launching" a separate esports league for China in a "bid to tap into the world's second largest economy." He said that the NBA is "considering either a separate" esports league in China or "including Chinese teams in the U.S." (CNBC.com, 6/7).
