world golf

Golf has become such an international sport these days. With the Ryder Cup next week, I am struck by the fact that the 4 majors are limited to just 2 countries: 3 in the U.S. and 1 in Britain. Tradition has a lot to do with it, but I wonder if golf will one day include a major championship from some other country (as an aside, why is the Canadian Open such a low profile tournament?), or at least one regular event in a foreign country for all the top players to play. I think it could only help increase TV revenues for golf by expanding interest across the globe. Major league baseball and football have already organized such limited international events. I don’t think the PGA or USGA needs to go overboard, but a tournament abroad — perhaps run jointly by another tour — might be worth considering.
