Lawrence Donegan in The Guardian of Great Britain: "America doesn't need any more majors. It's ludicrous that we have four majors and three of them are on one continent. Golf is becoming more global and if Asia is the new frontier, and it is, where better to have another major? The fifth major should be the Australian Open. It has the history, the tradition, the courses. But four is a great number. So forget the PGA Championship—just plug in the Australian Open."
• Larson, now a radio sports-talker in Jacksonville: "The Tour was always blowing in people's ears, 'This is a major,' and I think they pushed it too hard. If they had simply left it alone, everyone would consider it a major by now."
• There is one other possibility, Beman
