Is The PGA Tour Losing Its Appeal?

Rory McIlroy isn’t joining the PGA Tour next year, and its definitely by choice and not because he isn’t good enough. He explained to the press that he found himself not wanting to be in States, especially during the FedEx Cup playoffs.

He joins Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer as 3 of the worlds top 10 golfers who will not be playing on the Tour next year. Making this caveman ask the question, is the PGA Tour Losing its appeal, or is it just European golf just making a come back?

Many of our own top golfers are spending more and more time abroad, which is adding more fuel to questions. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were among just a few names at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai last weekend, and both have stayed on the other side of the globe. Mickelson is fighting the rain in Singapore while Tiger is head-butting kangaroos in the OZ.

So what do you think Rock Heads? Is overseas golf gaining popularity, or is the PGA Tour losing out?


Bonus: Espn is attempting to target more women with its new spinoff spinoff, but women aren’t taking as kindly to it as they would have liked. Do you think it’s a good idea?

    I for one won’t miss those guys. There are to many foreign player here already. They have just about taken over the women’s tour. You think you are in Japan or China when watching it. Let them play in their own counties and let the Americans win the American money.

    I agree with you Gil. If it wasnt for Scottish players, the game wouldn’t exist. It began as European game after all.
