Golf World (UK) - - PGA TOUR AT 50 -

The year 2012 was no­table for the PGA Tour’s move into alien ter­ri­to­ries. In an ef­fort to ex­tend its cor­po­rate and eco­nomic bound­aries and some­how keep up with the Eu­ro­pean Tour which vis­its most parts of the globe ex­cept the Amer­i­cas, the PGA Tour de­buted the PGA Tour Lati­noAmer­ica that year, its first foray into for­eign ter­ri­to­ries, quickly fol­lowed by a move to con­trol the Cana­dian Tour. Two years later, the PGA moved east, es­tab­lish­ing the PGA Tour China, re­branded the PGA Tour Se­ries China in 2018. It begs the ob­vi­ous ques­tion, are we look­ing at the slow creep to­wards a PGA-run world tour? “That is a pos­si­bil­ity, ab­so­lutely,” said PGA Tour com­mis­sioner Jay Mon­aghan. “Is it go­ing to hap­pen? Only time will tell but we are not go­ing to avoid that con­ver­sa­tion.”
