Well, then just click on this link and read the annual state of the PGA press conference, where Roger Warren and Joe Steranka will do their best to knock you out.
Well, there was this from Steranka:
The result is that we think it is not only the only all professional event; it is the most professionally run event in all of golf, and we're very proud of that.
Uh, professionals would move tee times up with a bad weather forecast.
Nice job by the assembled inkslingers to ask if they were going to be sure to avoid a repeat of 2005's Sunday debacle.
I spoke too soon...there was news from this rivetting gathering. Serves me right for skimming after they start patting themselves on the back.
Q. Joe, are you concerned or are you taking a look at how the Ryder Cup will be affected in two years with the whole FedEx Cup scheme with regards to basically forcing players to play a lot at the end of the year and then a week off and then potential playing in a Ryder Cup? And also, have you spent time or energy on trying to quantify or measure the results of things like Play Golf America in regards to bringing money back to your membership?
JOE STERANKA: On the Ryder Cup question, yes, we've made it clear to the PGA TOUR we are not happy with the scheduling for 2008; that we were not able to achieve a one week gap between their big TOUR Championship and the Ryder Cup, which we don't think is good. We would like to have our players have one week off to kind of regroup. And, so, that is what it is. We'll deal with it. But we would prefer to have one week in between, and I think that's in place for the subsequent years, at least over the next six years of this current PGA TOUR agreement.
How players will react to the new PGA TOUR schedule remains to be seen, but we're going to watch it; if it has an impact on the Ryder Cup that we think we need to address further, we'll address it.
