Home STAYING AHEAD OF THE CURVE:

There is a proposal circulating through the PGA Tour that appears to be gaining some interest. “ There's a pretty popular proposal right now where everyone would be required to play every tournament on Tour at least once out of four years,” said Stewart Cink, a member of the PGA Tour Policy Board. “ It's gotten some traction. I don't know if it's ever going to become a rule or not. It might,” he added. “There's positives and negatives to it. Obviously the positives are Tiger Woods is going to come to every tournament eventually,” he continued. “That's a great thing for all tournaments.” But there is a down side to the concept that would essentially be placing restrictions on Tour players schedules. “There would be nothing stopping Tiger Woods from playing the European Tour for a few years or the rest of his career. He's got that kind of power. Unfortunately he could do that. That would be a serious mistake if we did that. Got to look at things from both sides,” said Cink who has added the Honda Classic this year to his scheduled events. “I'm adding some tournaments here and there. I'm trying to do my part. We could all play 35 tournament a year, that would be great, but the level of play would probably suffer a little bit. Got to balance it.”
