Merger of the US and European PGA Tours is a ‘possibility’, the head of the US circuit has said.
Jay Monahan, relatively new to the job of commissioner of the US Tour, has said in an interview with the BBC that a PGA World Tour should be a long term ambition.
Keith Pelley, who heads the European Tour has already said combining the tours might make sense ‘at some point down the road’.
At present the two organisations are both partners and competitors’, said Monohan. ‘If you look at what’s in the best interests of the fan, best interests of the players, you could make the case for one global tour’, he said.
An example of how the current arrangements can cause disruption is that Justin Rose has been obliged to miss playing at Wentworth, the European Tour’s flagship event, this year. He is committed to both US and European Tours but to honour his US Tour contract he must play in Texas this year instead.
