Masters Lexicon Update: "PGA Tour's Secondary Tour"

Reader Don noticed multiple references on various Masters telecasts to the "PGA Tour's secondary tour."

This is in lieu of the Web.com Tour and would mean there has been an update to the Masters lexicon book distributed to the television partners.

What was the context?

And why the change? It is not like the Masters is sponsored by a competitor to Web.com -- whomever that would be.

Why not "the JV tour"?

I just call it 'The Hogan Tour' rather than try to keep up with the sponsorship du jour. The tour does similar using 'r', 's', and 'h' abbreviations for the Regular, Senior (Champions), and Hogan (Web.com) tours on their web site.

web.com is a tech company, might compete with IBM.

I guess they take the coca cola signage off all taps even though they serve coke.

they dont want any corporations named except for their direct partners.

Augusta has always instructed the announcers not to mention the sponsors of regular tour stops. i.e. "Tiger has won at Torrey Pines, Doral and Bay Hill this year or La Jolla, Miami and Orlando"

A heapin' helpin' of crow over here please....

....cannot believe Guan posted a score of 1-over, stunning. If he makes the cut we will upgrade to mindblowing.
04.11.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
@DTF... Good on you. Wonder if anybody else that posted the same type of thing will follow suit?

Remember the Chinese gymnasts? The kid is probably 16 or 17. That being said, wow, great job Guan.
04.11.2013 | Unregistered CommenterBrad
I think the Masters is the primary tour, and the PGA is the secondary tour; Web.com third-dairy or however you say that....

As to scores, players, etc....haven't got to tune in yet...good on the kid, but his age is questionable; very well versed in speaking English. Age aside- good for him, I guess.

@Brad Read a bit more about the kid, he is virtually unknown in China and supported only by his father who gave up his medical practice to further Guan's golf dreams. He's not one of Chinese test-tube athletes who went from the womb to a training academy as for the most part the communist party looks down on the game of golf. If he really starts to make waves though, expect that to change.

Take 2? It seems like They are The Masters of their own domain, and from there it goes.
