Even though I am not a Belmo fan, I do agree that if anyone on tour could save the tour, it is him. With that said, I don't feel that any one bowler could get the PBA out of its current hole. The PBA has been on the decline for way too long and although Tiger did infuse a bunch of money, sponsors, and fans into the PGA, the PGA was in way better shape than the PBA even before Tiger showed up. The 1990 PGA championship had a total purse of 1.35 million with $225,000 to the winner. The 1990 Firestone TOC had a total purse of $250,000 and a top prize of $50,000. I'm not sure if golf's rise with Tiger is the best comparison for the PBA. The problems are too big to be fixed by one star.
