Huggan On TV Deal

John Huggan weighs in on the 2007 schedule and PGA Tour TV deal.

Even with the world's most famous sportsman - Tiger Woods - as part of the package, professional golf in the fall cannot come close to competing with the NFL and NASCAR for the ever-shortening attention of America's increasingly overweight and couch-ridden populace. Watching enormous men in silly uniforms running into each other to no obvious purpose, or logo-festooned cars going round and round in seemingly endless circles apparently holds more appeal than the sight of Tiger majestically ripping a drive down the middle. 

He also looks at the European Tour ramifications and also the possibility of the Tour going global at some point.
