News Bulletin: Players Championship replaces Masters as Major Championship
It seems that the folks at Sawgrass are not averse to low scores, unlike their neighbors to the (barely) north. Forget Augusta National; they had their 70 years as a major…there’s more drama on the final 3 at TPC, anyway. We all like the US and British Opens at majors, and the PGA is doing thing the right way (less rough, newer courses, yada yada), so let’s eliminate the Masters as a major and replace it with the Players Championship. I’ve been a Finchem foe for far too long…I’m not backing away, but he’s been out-finchemed by the pokes at Augusta National.

I think the Tour should have one event each year at a tiny little muni that isn't set up for pros at all, some 6600-yard junker. There would be 59s all over the place probably, but it'd be a fan favorite for sure.
Also, I think I should e-mail you my weightlifting regimen....
As far as the Players being new major - nope. If you want to replace one, it would have to be the US Open. Talk about drudgery!
yes, I have played both...and Doral is tougher.
