As the PGA Tour's Oxford shirt set prepares to present players with their plan at Tuesday's player meeting that will save the Nationwide Tour by killing the Q-School avenue to the PGA Tour, Sean Martin suggests ways to liven up the soon-to-be-renamed minor league tour. And I couldn't help but wonder why you wouldn't take these suggestions to make it more sponsor-attractive without killing the Q-School approach?
Anyway, I thought this was his best suggestion:
3. Reduce the so-called battlefield promotion from 3 wins to 2: I saved my most radical proposal for last. Let the PGA Tour put its money where its mouth is. If the Nationwide Tour is as strong as the PGA Tour claims, the Tour should be more eager to allow midseason promotions.
