Golf stars warned against joining rival tour

The US PGA Tour has threatened the world's leading golfers with instant suspension and a lifetime ban if they join a proposed breakaway world tour promising multi-million dollar deals, reported Britain's Daily Telegraph and other media.

The British-based World Golf Group had publicly unveiled its plan last year for a new global tour - the Premier Golf League - comprising 18 events annually, featuring 48 players. Each tournament would have prize money of US$10 million (S$13.3m).

The Telegraph said players have been offered contracts of up to US$100 million to take part. - REUTERS
