I watched an interview earlier where he said that he never tried to put pressure on anyone from the tours to play this tournament, but he did seem a bit disappointed at the turnout. I kind of enjoyed seeing the "lesser" players in the shake-up. Just feels a bit of a damp squib combined with the pitiful "Hero Challenge"The European Tour has gone completely now, the standard is shit. All the big guns are in the US, especially with it being a non Ryder Cup year.
The scheduling of the British Masters had been terrible. With there being a major next week no one was ever going to come. Tommy himself would be there if he hadn’t been asked to host the event.
Hillside is a great course for it though.....I played across the railway line at S&A earlier for a few holes so I was watching from the 16th there for a bit. There definitley needs to be more links golf on the tour.
