Adam Scott: 'It is too much to ask"
By mustang6560 on 9/25/13


As Tor noted last week, the new wrap-around PGA Tour season, which kicks off the week after the Presidents Cup, has created a scheduling nightmare for the Australian PGA Championship, Australian Masters and the Australian Open.

In fact, the majority of Australian golfers including Geoff Ogilvy, Marc Leishman, Greg Chalmers, Aaron Baddeley, Matt Jones, Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby are only expected to make one appearance Down Under in November because of the new PGA Tour schedule.

The only native son who is expected to play in each event is reigning Masters champion Adam Scott. And in an article on SportsFan.com, he essentially apologized for the new PGA Tour schedule.
'Playing the PGA Tour is very tough, it's a fine line week to week and it's players' careers at stake,' Scott said.

'You can easily be off the tour and it would be unfair for these guys to jeopardise their careers for a couple of events at home.

'It is too much to ask.

'I am in a fortunate position where I can play and I am happy about that.'
It's nice to see Adam defend his fellow countrymen however, none of the aforementioned golfers would be in this situation if they played better last season. But as Adam said, it's hard to earn and keep your PGA Tour card.

Lateral thinking at its best. I wonder if anyone told them.

Just messing with you.

So, if we changed played to worked, would it apply to this site and the still coming upgrades?
