What’s the difference between the PGA Tour and the European Tour two weeks before The Masters? One is in San Antonio, Texas, the other in Morocco.
Nothing against the city where Davy Crockett and other American heroes once made a famous stand and made famous the cry, “Remember the Alamo!” But, c’mon, Morocco anyone?
Ten players ranked in the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings are on hand for the festivities at the Golf du Palais Royal in Agadir beginning Thursday, including England’s Andy Sullivan, who, should he win the tournament or finish second, would secure a spot in The Masters field for the first time in his life.
Finishing first or second would propel him into the Top 50 players in the world, the automatic qualifier for inclusion in a Major. He is presently ranked 61st in the world thanks to win at the Joburg Open and a fourth-place finish at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic earlier this year.
