T HE PGA Tour seems to be unwittingly taking apart one of the most popular and historic collections of tournaments on their schedule. Played every year since the 1960s, the Tour’s annual stretch of tournaments played in Florida, known as the Florida Swing, consists of only three events this season. Traditionally used by players to ready their game for the Masters, in 2007 the Florida Swing lost its biggest event, The Players Championship (owned by the PGA Tour), when it was moved from March to May. With a large percentage of the world’s best players residing in Florida, the American state itself and the tournaments played within it play a huge role in professional golf. The PGA Tour even makes its home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. This year the Tour moved the WGC event traditionally held at the Donald Trump owned Doral Resort down south to Mexico. While the players have been glowing in their praise of the course and the event last week in Mexico, Doral was a fixture on Tour having hosted an event every year since 1961 and consistently counting major champions in its list of winners. WITH A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE WORLD’S BEST PLAYERS RESIDING IN FLORIDA, THE AMERICAN STATE ITSELF AND THE TOURNAMENTS PLAYED WITHIN IT PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN PROFESSIONAL GOLF. THE PGA TOUR EVEN MAKES ITS HOME IN PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA. GAEx_PARADISE_PALMS_HS.indd 1 24/02/2017 3:00 pm
