Look, I enjoy the pod but the endless sniping towards anything outside the PGA Tour is tedious. Does Solly really believe that the Las Vegas event was bigger than the BMW PGA Championship? If so…get a grip! I’m a Scot and so delighted that Laird won but frankly who cares about this kind of tournament on a dull desert course? Wentworth is a wonderful course, the PGA is a great tournament with a fantastic history, and watching Hatton, Fleetwood and, yes, Reed, was a delight. We all know his back story but at least he, unlike the majority of US pros it seems, has a passport and travels. No, they’d rather play a pitch and putt event in the sand and stuff their wallets with cash. Ok, so the COVID-19 situation did impact on last week’s event but American players could get off their backsides occasionally and travel further than Florida. I love watching the European tour but generally give the US version a miss. Partly due to the dire TV coverage of course.
Next time you get dull about World Ranking points then maybe think about the Ryder Cup…lower ranked Europeans, eh?
Hate to sound ‘pissed’ as I do enjoy listening. But there is life outside the US PGA tour.
