THE SPECIAL WHAN

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez about the new joint venture partnership involving the LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour: “I’m backing Mike Whan to make a real success of the new alliance.

No offence to those two guys. They are both great players and it’s fantastic for them that they are reaping the rewards for terrific careers, but it does leave me wondering about the financial imbalance that exists in golf right now.
