Japanese tour splits with PGA of Japan

A golf revolt is under way in Japan. Just as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus helped pave the way 30 years ago for what is now the PGA Tour, touring pros in Japan are prepared to break from the PGA of Japan. The Japan Tour Players Club, former Japanese tour director Kosaku Shimada and the Golf Tournament Promotion Association have "decided to separate from the PGA Policy officials who wish to follow the old way and not see the changes needed for the upcoming age," said GTPA director Michio Torii.
