MA­JOR RE­THINK RE­QUIRED

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - CAMERON BING­HAM (14), BALLYMENA

I think the US PGA Cham­pi­onship should be re­clas­si­fied as a WGC event, and a Euro­pean, African or Asian tour­na­ment added as a fourth Ma­jor. At the mo­ment, the most pres­ti­gious (and lu­cra­tive) tour­na­ments are played mainly in the US, hence why there are more Euro­peans com­pet­ing on the PGA Tour rather than Amer­i­cans play­ing on the Euro­pean Tour. A change needs to be made to the Ma­jor set-up to make golf truly world­wide.
