What's going on here?  There seems to be new low quality events cropping up with no consistent schedule year on year.  Last week we had the Rocco Forte Sicillian Open (some years it doesn't take place), a few weeks ago Golf Sixes and this week the Belgian Knockout (brand new).  Sky keep telling us that the European Tour is in great shape but I am guessing this is pure hype.

All about the pound note, or the euro

Agreed. You don't see the PGA putting on tournaments with joke formats.  The European Tour is dire and poorly supported for all but about 8 weeks of the year.  The clear solution, given that golf is a properly global sport, is a Tennis-style worldwide governing body with a proper hierarchy of tournaments and a ranking points system that encourages a lot more international travel (not just the best non-US players to the US) and integration across traditional boundaries.

Will this happen? In the words of Butch Harmon...'you bet it won't'
