Sal, Others Weigh In

Sal Johnson writes about the rumored TV deal, why it became a money loser for ABC, the loss of work for a lot of talented people and he wonders how the Tour will spin this.

Since NBC doubling its golf coverage would mean going from 5 to 10 events, Johnson seems to feel CBS will be doing a lot more golf and wonders how viewers will feel about that (especially since their telecasts seemed a bit tired when they did just 17 events last year).

Here's the AP story on the Golf World story with its own confirmation from another source, and here is Golfweek's rehashing of the Golf World story without attribution.
