Oh Yeah, Asian Tour? Well, WE Don't Need YOU!

That, in effect, in what Australasian PGA Tour head Ben Sellenger (and guest of The 19th Hole) said about the Asian Tour's decision to "not accept" the OneAsia Tour. To not completely butcher what Sellenger said, here's what he really is on the record as saying.

“The concept isn't ultimately reliant on the Asian Tour putting their stamp of approval on it,” Sellinger said.

“If you look at the strength of the parties that are involved, it doesn't really affect it to any degree.

“Ideally, we'd love for them to be involved. We think it is in the best interests of golf, but with all the other regional bodies in Asia Pacific pushing this forward it's something that can still work extremely well.”

Well, there you have it. So, it is a bit of he said-he said as the Asian Tour is saying they were never included and Sellenger saying that they have chosen not to be a part of it. Obviously, someone is lying somewhere.
