This is the most exciting news I have heard in a long time.  

Talk of an alliance between the PGA and LPGA Tours!  Here are some of the huge benefits:  Cost of covering one tournament instead of 2, the LPGA benefits from the PGA Tour’s strength in advertising. Plus, people can attend a tournament and see both PGA and LPGA players at the same venue.  And, I think the crowds will be larger.  Would love to see Jessica Korda and Jason Day paired together!

Thanks so much to GOLF DIGEST and  Ron Sirak for this interesting story.  I cannot wait!

A PGA and LPGA Alliance makes so much sense for the future!

Imagine this: A mixed-team, better-ball, match-play event in which Rickie Fowler and Lexi Thompson meet Jordan Spieth and Lydia Ko in the global television final of what would be an official PGA Tour and LPGA tournament. While the logistics of pulling off such an event would have enormous obstacles, last Friday’s announcement that the PGA Tour and the LPGA have entered into “a long-term, written strategic alliance” is reason to believe it might be part of golf’s future.

The apparent departure of David Feherty after 19 years walking the fairways for CBS and filling the airways with clever comments has created yet another fight in a seemingly endless battle for content and talent among networks vying for the most valuable property in entertainment — live sports.

Even as word spread that talks between CBS and Andrew Elkin, Feherty’s agent for Creative Artists Agency (CAA), had broken down, CBS supplied only a polite “no comment” when asked about the matter by GolfDigest.com.

NBC/Golf Channel, owned by Comcast, and Fox Sports, considered the main suitors for Feherty’s talents, also responded with a “no comment.” Contacted through NBC/Golf Channel, Feherty also chose not to respond.

But industry insiders with knowledge of the situation said the fight for Feherty would intensify the already bitter battle between Fox Sports and NBC/GC, which is still licking its wounds after losing the USGA contract to Fox, a network that this year became a newcomer to golf.

Multiple sources say the CBS situation was soured by the two factors: Feherty wanted a booth job rather than roaming the fairways, but Nick Faldo already shares that duty with Jim Nantz. CAA was demanding a salary figure CBS was unwilling to meet.

The money players earn in sport is mind-boggling!  Golf is no exception. 

Jordan Spieth will earn the amount of money because his Master’s victory is even beyond his wildest dreams.  Jack Nicklaus won 18 majors, and Jordan will pass him in career earnings after two years on tour and one major Championship.  What does the future hold for young Spieth?  Ron Sirak, writing for Golf Digest, thinks that Jordan will rake it in, as he has believability (no one thinks this is a fluke), has won the Masters as his first major (huge), and he is a really nice, humble, good looking guy.  Read Ron’s take on Jordan’s future.
 
Jordan Spieth passes Nicklaus in Career Earnings!

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The jacket isn’t the only green Jordan Spieth will be taking home from Augusta National. The youngest major championship winner since Tiger Woods in 1997, the 21-year-old Spieth will see his off-course income more than triple as a result of his Masters victory, agents and analysts tell GolfDigest.com. Call him the $25 million man — at the very least.
 

And that spike in earnings power, plus his on-course winnings, will likely propel Spieth from No. 16 to the fifth spot in the annual Golf Digest 50 All-Encompassing money list next year.

 
Spieth includes among his endorsement partners Under Armour, AT&T, Titleist, Rolex, Perfect Sense Digital, NetJets and SuperStroke Grips. Last year, Spieth, who is represented by Jay Danzi of Lagardere Unlimited, made $12.3 million overall with about $6 million coming from off-course business deals. With $1.8 million for his Masters win, Spieth has already won nearly $5 million this year. And it’s only April.
 
Tiger Woods was No. 1 in the 2015 GD 50 money list with $54.5 million; Phil Mickelson No. 2 at $50.7 million; Rory McIlroy No. 3 with $49.2 million and 85-year-old Arnold Palmer No. 4 at $40 million. No. 5 was Jack Nicklaus with $22 million.
 
By slipping on the green jacket, Spieth will almost certainly leapfrog Nicklaus and 10 other players into that spot right behind the big four with off-course money alone nearing $20 million.
 
The victory for Spieth is worth so much because he hits all the benchmarks agents and endorsement partners are looking for.
 
First is believability. No one thinks this was a fluke. They believe there are more major victories in his future.
