"A lot of the criticism is all based on speculation," Kaczkowski said. "The national media is a bit jaded because the PGA Tour is doing a big marketing push. But it has to do a big PR effort to educate the fans. Otherwise, it won't work."See how jaded? Sherman couldn't even wait a paragraph or two to drop that uh, speculation.
My guess is the fans won't get caught up in the actual points race. The formulas seem confusing, and it is going to be hard to get excited about Woods or Phil Mickelson adding to their retirement accounts.
A golfer may or may not have what is termed the ‘architectonic sense’ very highly developed so far as the courses he plays on are concerned. He may be partially blind to the strategic influences that threaten him and have a stronger inclination to specialize in the technicalities that claim his greater interest. But there may be others who prefer to receive impressions as they come with irrelevant swiftness, who delight more in the spirit than in the precise letter of the game. TOM SIMPSON
