505 - Breakaway Tours Deep Dive (1968 formation of the PGA Tour, Attempted coup in 1983, and Greg Norman's World Tour in 1994)

For this week's pod, we dove deep into three significant developments in professional golf history. As today's golf landscape appears to be shifting on a weekly basis, we look back at precedent for potential breakaway tours. In our research, three significant events stood out: The breakaway from the PGA of America (and ultimately, the formation of the PGA Tour) in 1968, an attempted overthrow of Commissioner Deane Beman in 1983 by some of the the top players in the game, and Greg Norman's formation of a World Tour in 1994. Common themes that arise are similar to the refrains we hear today. This one was a lot of fun.  (For a wild read about the 1969 Alameda Open, and how it relates to the topics discussed in this episode, check out this article from Nick Lozito: https://nicklozito.substack.com/p/sunol-valley-the-bay-area-kidnapping) Learn more about your ad choices.
