Garry Smits gets the impression that a new PGA Tour event on Sea Island is almost a done deal.
Eric Schneider, Sea Island director of golf, told the Times-Union on Tuesday that the resort is in discussions with the Tour to add the event as a replacement for the Valero Texas Open, which will move to the spring next year.
This year's Texas Open is scheduled for Oct. 9-12.
Schneider said an announcement could be made "as early as two weeks from now."
"It's under consideration," Schneider said. "We have had a continual dialogue with the Tour for around six months."
