Golf Australia Express : GA Express 224
I T’S a rare and momentous occasion when the PGA Tour is charged with being progressive, and embracing the modern world. But perhaps, could it be, that this is the new world order we can expect under new PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan [pictured above]. An organisation not exactly renowned for radical thinking, the Tour under the previous custodianship of Tim Finchem (and the game of golf in general) moved with all the urgency of treacle. Rule changes were painfully slow to manifest, players continued to thumb their nose at the clearly identified need to speed up the game to keep it relevant, and you only have to look at the ludicrously long furore over putter lengths to see how resistant the game is to change. But already in 2017, there’s a sense that a new era is upon us. Already we’re seeing the embracing of technology in ways never seen before on the Tour. After the successful streaming of other sports, like the NFL, on social media behemoth Twitter, the PGA Tour has arrived at that party and will broadcast the first hour to 90 minutes of Thursday and Friday play at 31 tournaments, beginning this week at the CareerBuilder Challenge. The success of the NFL’s streaming of Thursday night football hinges on the fact that the game is shown live and in its entirety.
