REST EASY: Jack Nicklaus met with South Korean reporters on Friday and told them not to worry about the Presidents Cup going to South Korea in 2015. It will be the biggest tournament ever in that country, and one reporter asked Nicklaus for advice.
“We have put on how many … 37 Memorial Tournaments? And the PGA Tour came in here like we had never put on a tournament,” Nicklaus said. “They did what they wanted to do to put on a tournament. So the PGA Tour will guide you. And matter of fact, they will do what they want, if they think it’s the right thing to do in a tournament. Korea does not have to worry about that.”
Nicklaus said South Korean officials will handle the event from a political and financial perspective.
“But the PGA Tour, from an organization side, will do it all for you,” he said. “Even with as much experience as we have, they wanted to do most of all of it themselves.”
