Larry Scott.......

The package of 2007 rule changes and new standards is an important interim step in support of the Tour’s Roadmap 2010 long-term plan. Today’s announcement follows calls by Tour CEO Larry Scott in mid-October to take immediate action to improve the player withdrawal situation. The reforms include the following:

• Reduction of top player minimum tournament commitment requirement from 13 to 12 events, including two events to be chosen by the Tour for each player
• New standards that will mandate that all Tour fall season events shall utilize the same surface and same ball
• Doubling of player late withdrawal fines, up to a maximum of $40,000 for third and subsequent late withdrawal offenses
• Reduction of minimum player tournament commitment requirement for players who have been on the Tour for 12 years or more by one tournament
• Option for players aged 30 years old or more (as of January 1 of the Tour year) to have their minimum
tournament commitment consist of only four Tier I events



Can you believe he has the nerve to double the fines for late
withdrawals when he encourages the players to withdraw late
so they can sell more tickets using the players name.
