Australia and South Africa aim to reduce conflicting events

Sydney, Australia - Australasian PGA officials said on Tuesday they are willing to talk with South African golf authorities about reducing schedule conflicts so that players could compete in events on both tours.

Ernie Els and Nick Price are among the touring players who have urged an agreement.

PGA Tour of Australasia chairman Jack Newton said joint venture tournaments might be the answer.

A joint venture deal could involve the South African Open and South African PGA Championship, tournaments which were run against the recent Greg Norman event and last week's Australian Masters.
