I am not a golfer, but I love to watch golf on television, particularly when the world's top players, like Tiger Woods, are competing against each other.

When the Masters and US and British opens were shown in Hong Kong, I was one of those viewers who spent many happy nights watching the tournaments.

However, the PGA Championship was not shown on any channels here earlier this month and I would like to know why this happened.

I am sure other readers would appreciate an explanation.
