Majors: Will We See a Change to the Current 4?
Most seem to accept that the current 4 majors are what everyone will always accept as the major titles in golf BUT I think there are 3 important things to remember:
1. When some historical pros won their "Major" titles, these titles were not necessarily considered majors.
2. Some titles that were considered majors years ago are little more than a footnote today.
3. The PGA Tour would love to own/control 1 or more majors.
Check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men's_major_golf_championships#History for an interesting read on the history of Majors.
Regarding #1 above- Is it less worthy to win a major title when you did not have the pressure of knowing it was a major?
The PGA and it's major status is the one that will be remembered most years from now.
