[Ans] Why is the PGA Tour name always written in all caps?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "hy is the PGA Tour name always written in all caps?"



Why has "capitalization of name of tour as branding been dismissed"? This is what they call it, even if our unsigned-in editor doesn't like it! I hate "Monster Park" for Candlestick Park, but I don't control the naming rights. Does anyone else favor reversion, or is it just me? Rlquall 02:46, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC) I didn't think that the person who wrote that was dismissing that they do, in fact, put it in all caps, but they suppressed the statement that it is done for "branding" reasons. I, for one, know that they want it written in all caps, but I don't know that it is done for branding reasons. I really have no idea why they do it. Whoever made that comment has not changed me from rewriting it PGA TOUR wherever I happen to see it. My question is: should references to "the tour" that do not rise to the level of the full name PGA TOUR, use TOUR, or Tour, or tour? My vote is simply for "tour," referring to the general, improper noun of a circuit of competition. If you use "Tour," you're saying it's a proper noun, but the proper noun is all caps, and not only would that look awkward to say that they did such-and-such on "the TOUR," I think it's unnecessary. If you were talking about NFL policies, you probably wouldn't say "League policy says xyz," but simply "league policy says xyz," "league" referring to the improper noun that is the general concept of a league instead of this specific league. --AppleFan84

So shouldn't the page be moved to PGA TOUR?

I can only assume it is a silly attempt to make the name catch the reader's eye in a paragraph of print, and most media outlets ignore it just as it deserves to be ignored. Osomec 29 June 2005 15:50 (UTC) My preferences run along the same lines as Zellin, since it is not for us to judge the propriety of what various organizations choose to do with their names. Osomec and I discussed this and I was left with the impression he would write "Tour" when he wrote it originally but would not go out of his way to change it in places where it is already capitalized. I see he has since deviated from that. I am hesitant to start a revert war although I don't see why he deserves ipso facto deference on this matter. AppleFan84 Regarding the first major; "The Masters" is not the "official" name of the event. Personal correspondence with Ivan Maisel indicated that he was told to use "Masters Tournament" as the name of the event. The page should be moved to PGA TOUR, that's the way they always write it (even if it's just "The TOUR"). It may be for "branding", or it may be just to distinguish between just any old Tour put on by the Professional Golfers Association and the PGA TOUR, but I don't see why it shouldn't be moved.--Cuchullain 21:47, 24 January 2006 (UTC) "PGA Tour" is normal English usage, and Wikipedia follows normal English usage. ReeseM 02:36, 17 April 2006 (UTC) Most people still think of Myanmar as Burma and call it that, so "Burma" is arguably the normal English usage. The Wikipedia article is "Myanmar" because that is the official name of the country, so that rule is not necesarily always followed. Rlquall 01:50, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
