BURNING QUESTIONS: Global Golf Post Publisher Jim Nugent addresses the sport's "burning questions" for '22 in this week's SPORTS BUSINESS JOURNAL. Questions include what USGA CEO Mike Whan and LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan will do in their first calendar years at the head of their respective organizations. Whan will "soon disclose his agenda for the next five to seven years, and it is sure to get people talking." Samaan "begins the year with more purse money in play and plenty of upcoming potential American stars, including sisters Nelly and Jessica Korda." Her "challenge" is to "persuade American TV networks to dedicate more airtime to the women’s game." There also is the "expanding television landscape." The Tour's new TV deals bring more than $700M "into the PGA Tour coffers." Nugent: "How will tour Commissioner Jay Monahan use the new funding?" (SPORTS BUSINESS JOURNAL, 1/17 issue).
