    Last I looked it’s the PGA of America. Seems it should be contested in the USA. Perhaps Rees wants to push one of his courses elsewhere in the world.

    It’s not the championship of the “International PGA,” it’s the championship of the American PGA.

    The British PGA had its Championship at Wentworth this year, the Australian PGA held its tournament in Queensland, Portugal is going to hold its Masters tournament in Portugal, the British Masters will be in England …

    Notice a trend here, Rees?

    The opinion of an America-hating mediocre designer who would never make it on his own merit since nothing he does is appealing or enjoyable should not be published on WRX.
