  • Miss golf yet? These 10 books should help pass the time

World No. 3 Brooks Koepka told the Associated Press that he has decided against joining the PGL, which made waves earlier this year when it proposed a lucrative new team-based, 18-event system created to lure golf's best players away from the PGA Tour. "I am out of the PGL. I'm going with the PGA Tour", Koepka told the Associated Press.

"I have a hard time believing golf should be about just 48 players". Rahm, on Sunday told Golfweek his plan was to remain a member of the PGA Tour.

"I think what I'm going to do is focus on just the PGA Tour", Rahm said.

"At the end of the day I'm a competitor".

"I am out of the PGL; I'm going with the PGA Tour, " Koepka said.

Rory McIlroy, who replaced Koepka at No. 1 in the world a month ago, said last month in Mexico City that he was not interested in the new league.

The concept of the league was to invigorate golf by putting together 12 four-man teams that would be required to play 18 events - 10 of them in the USA - that feature 54 holes, no cut and a shotgun start to fit a five-hour broadcast window.

"I'm going with the PGA Tour", he said. But these guys who we see win, who have been grinding for 10 or 15 years, that's what makes the cool stories. "The PGA Tour has done such a great job with what we have and I'm really thankful for what they've done".

"I don't forget where I've come from (which includes the Challenge and European Tours), there are guys from that top 125 who could be the next star". You ask some of these younger guys if they want to play for someone else.

American Tiger Woods sought to put the cancellations of a slew of golf tournaments due to the coronavirus into perspective on Monday, saying the well-being of others trumped the sport. "There are guys from that top 125 who could be the next star". Yes, the top guys do a lot for the tour.

Woods' remarks came on the heels of the Centers for Disease Control recommendation on Sunday that events of 50 or more people should be canceled for the next eight weeks throughout the United States.

"Money isn't going to change my life", he said.

"I get to choose". When life is good and it's real good you don't want to change it.

Likewise two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson who wants "to play on this Tour for the rest of my career" - which nobody is too sure how long that will be given how he often talks of retiring. I think the PGA Tour is run beautifully.
