Two quick golf hits:
1) Today is the start of the PGA Tour’s final Policy Board meeting of 2011. The main topic of discussion, according to Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard, will be the revamping of Q-School, which will include making the Nationwide Tour the only way of getting to the PGA Tour and creating a “finals series” of events for PGA and Nationwide fringe guys to get/retain their cards. It’ll most likely start in 2013.
2) The people running the 2016 Olympics in Rio have announced that the architect(s) to the new golf course to be used for those games will be announced on December 23.
