Today the PGA Tour announced the creation of PGA Tour University, a special ranking system to help the game’s top collegiate male golfers make it to the PGA Tour ranks (4:50).

Should the tour have taken this approach from the beginning (12:10)? The European Tour is coming back to action with a “UK Swing” starting in July! What can fans expect to see on the links as Europes top players return (18:40)? According to Greg Norman, the PGA Tour is exploring the creation of a side pot to pay its top players.
