Going West?

Doug Ferguson reports that the PGA Tour is about to create two fall "Quest for the Card" events in California, starting with a tournament in Fresno on a still under construction course, followed by an event in San Jose.

Also in the works is a tournament near San Jose, Calif., that would be sponsored by Fry's Electronics on a private course called The Institute, which is owned by Silicon Valley mogul John Fry. During the American Express Championship at Harding Park last October, a few players took part in an outing at The Institute. Fred Funk was said to have shot the lowest score (75) on a course that measured about 7,900 yards.

Wow, fun.

Meanwhile, Golf World reports that the Honda Classic may become a Jack and Barbara Nicklaus hosted event.
