The Commercialbank Qatar Masters and the Waste Management Phoenix Open will both offer up 50 world-ranking points to this week's winners.
If you throw out the major championships and World Golf Championships, 15 PGA Tour events offered 50 or more points to the tournament winner last year. That compares to six European Tour events that offered 50 or more points. Four years ago, the PGA Tour held a 19-4 advantage in events that offered 50 or more points to its winners. Ten years ago, the PGA Tour held a 24-4 advantage.
The PGA Tour and European Tour went head-to-head with events 32 times last year. The European Tour offered more total world rankings points in nine of those head-to-head matchups. Four years ago, the European Tour won just seven of those head-to-head matchups.
