Matt Kuchar says global tour could happen during his career
One big tour for golf would be messy for the PGA Tour and European Tour but Matt Kuchar thinks it will happen sooner rather than later.
A global currency? Not happening.
A global golf tour, however? We could only be a few years away.
Matt Kuchar was asked about the possibility on Tuesday at the Australian Masters.
"I absolutely do see the PGA Tour, the European Tour, the Asian Tour, the Australian Tour somehow turning into some sort of global world tour," said Kuchar.
"I think it will be in my time."
A combo-tour comprised of the world's current largest circuits? That would certainly be fascinating. It's something tennis has turned into a success but golf has never really tried even though there's crossover with the majors.
Kuchar seemed convinced, though, that it's coming.
"I think it seems like it's coming quicker in this last year."
It makes sense, I guess, and would eliminate a lot of the issues you see with end-of-year fatigue (especially for Europeans) in trying to play in both the Race to Dubai and FedEx Cup.
I just think the logistics of making it happen will be far more messy than Kuchar seems to think. Although it makes more sense if you believe the rumors from earlier this year about the PGA Tour buying out the European Tour.
I'd be for it -- I love the game on a global level and find it far more fascinating in, say, Scotland than I do in San Antonio.
I'm just not sure it'll happen as quickly as some might think.
