Rory may be the next Colin Montgomery. Don't upset the Yanks, young man.

Ehh, the PGA won't do anything. There has been a number of players that said they won't compete on the U S tour in 2011. Except for Rory they all have given legitimate reasons but I think the bottom line is that the competition is easier on the EURO tour. Of course, if more of the top EURO players play more across the pond then not so much. I really believe the main reasdon that Westwood is not going to compete, at least full time, on the PGA tour is that it will be easier for him to maintain his #1 standing. You know, why play against the best in the world when, on the EURO tour, you only have to play what???, 5 excellent players. I will be interesting to see how these players perform when they do come to the U S and play in the majors or other important tournaments.
