European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley insists golf must embrace new formats and plans to have six-hole events on the professional circuit as early as next year. Ryan Schraeder Jersey .The Canadian, who succeeded George OGrady last year, has been keen to modernise the game and has already permitted players to wear shorts in pro-ams and introduced measures aimed at tackling slow play.However, Pelleys announcement that six-hole sprint formats could be included on the European Tour schedule from 2017 is a significant leap.Golf and tennis has to be a little more open to letting the youth actually participate, Pelley told BBC Radio 5Live. Theres no question that is something we believe in as well.You look at some of the new formats that have been created -- when you look at adventure golf, or the brand Top Golf, and theres one 15 minutes from where I live in Virginia Water. Its really geared towards millennials, so the way that people are participating in the game is completely different.Lets be honest -- and scientific data proves this -- attention spans are decreasing as opposed to increasing and its completely different when the choice people have to consume content now is so different than it was 35-40 years ago.So you have to change, peoples time is so precious that golf -- I think every golf course being built needs to be six holes, six holes, six holes - so that people can go at the beginning before they go to work.Pelley highlighted the success of Twenty20 cricket in boosting attendances as a reason for change.From our perspective, as the gatekeepers of the professional game, we are looking to create a format that would be six holes.That could be an hour, an hour-and-a-half content programme which would be very entertaining, added Pelley, who said that if golf were invented today it would likely be a 12-hole rather than 18-hole sport.Yes there would be a shot clock, yes there would be music being played, and PA announcements, and players would be dressed a little differently, and maybe they would only play with five or seven clubs.Our leaderboard is always filled with a bunch of different flags and it would probably be a country competition, so you could probably see England playing Scotland in a six-hole matchplay with time clocks and music and so forth going on and it would be an aspirational goal to be even remotely as successful as Twenty20 cricket.If youre not prepared to change, if youre not prepared to be innovative, if youre not prepared to take chances, then I do believe that the sports that arent will fall behind.Wed like to experiment ... in 2017 and maybe roll it out in 2018. Its still in the infancy stages of being developed.The tradition, the integrity of the game, the 72-hole tournament will always be there in some form but if you catapult ahead 10 or 15 years the game of golf will be consumed completely differently and there will be different formats that will be successful as content entertainment makers.Pelley also refused to rule out changing the name of the European Tour to reflect its global nature in the future.A strategic partnership with the Asian Tour was announced earlier this week and with just 19 of the 50 European Tour events held in 2016 being staged on European soil, Pelley is open to rebranding in the future.He continued: You cant play 47 weeks in Europe, hence the reason that we started to move all around the world and since then weve expanded and as early as this week weve announced a strategic alliance with the Asian Tour, so our position in Asia is going to grow: weve opened an office recently in Korea.As the game expands, were expanding, so youre correct assuming the brand might change going forward. Takkarist McKinley Jersey . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. "I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. Courtney Upshaw Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. .S. hockey team after paying his dues as an NHL general manager for more than three decades and giving up a lot of his free time to help USA Hockey.NEW YORK -- The NHL is threatening to relocate the Phoenix Coyotes if Glendale city council doesnt approve a new arena deal for the franchise by July 2. That was commissioner Gary Bettmans strong stance Thursday after a board of governors meeting that included an update on the Coyotes situation but not much else in the way of progress, as the league waits on the process in Arizona. Renaissance Sports & Entertainment has agreed to buy the team, but everything is contingent on an arena management deal getting done. "If the council doesnt approve it so that this transaction can close, I dont think the Coyotes will be playing there anymore," Bettman said. Strengthening his position from the Stanley Cup final -- the original target for the city of Glendale to finish the deal -- Bettman explained that the NHL has "lots of options" if the Coyotes must relocate, even if that plan B hasnt yet been ironed out. "I find it difficult to conceive of why, if the council turns this down, we would want to keep the team in Glendale any longer," Bettman said. "And so we will then, if they turn it down, have to deal with the possibilities and the options that will be available to us, and they are numerous." Deputy commissioner Bill Daly didnt want to get into specific cities that could get the Coyotes if keeping the team in Glendale doesnt work out. Asked specifically about Seattles Key Arena, he said it could house an NHL team. Asked about Quebec City being an option, Daly said, "I wouldnt rule it out." "I think we tried to be clear that obviously there are a number of alternatives, and we have to decide which one is best for us in the short term," Daly said. DeVondre Campbell Jersey. The short term would begin in 2013-14. Bettman and Daly confirmed there is enough time to move the Coyotes to another city without them playing a lame-duck season in Glendale. If the Coyotes move, the conference and division alignments wont change, according to Daly, even if it means a less-than-ideal situation like what the Winnipeg Jets went through after moving from Atlanta. Not knowing whether the Coyotes will be in Glendale or somewhere else is holding up the release of the next NHL schedule. But so is completion of an agreement to send NHL players to the Olympics in Sochi in 2014. Bettman said the board of governors gave him authority to get a deal done and that theres a meeting Monday in New York "to hopefully conclude that." The board discussed rule changes such as hybrid icing being tested in pre-season and visors being made mandatory for incoming players, but Bettman declined to give details as to whether they were approved, deferring to the NHLPA, which meets next week and must formally approve them. The Coyotes situation obviously drew the most attention. Colorado Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic said the board was "brought up to speed" but declined to reveal much more. At this point, the NHL has to wait. "Were anticipating or hoping that the Glendale City Council passes the proposed deal with the Renaissance group for the operation of the building and the club playing there going forward," Bettman said. "Thats an essential ingredient to this moving forward." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
