A new global golf circuit is being planned, multiple sources have confirmed to Reuters, in what would be the biggest upheaval in the professional game in decades.To be named the World Golf Series, the circuit proposed by the British-based World Golf Group has been in the planning stages for more than a year.Several blue-chip sponsors are believed to be on board for the World Golf Series if top players can be signed.Ranking points are used to determine eligibility for the four major championships, which are not run by the PGA Tour.Player contracts are also dependent on their world ranking.The series sounds eerily similar to the world tour proposed by then-number one Greg Norman more than two decades ago -- a plan that went nowhere after the PGA Tour played hardball.Another comment by the same player suggested the World Golf Series is having trouble getting its plans to come together.
