PNC Championship - Notebook
By TERRY LYONS
This abbreviated edition of PGA Tour Brunch will preview this weekend’s PNC Championship. Our next edition will come in 2021 when we go full speed ahead on the entire 2021 PGA Tour season with coverage/previews/odds/notes and just about everything you need to get a quick, easy glance at each week’s PGA Tour event.
The publication schedule will be Wednesday through Monday of each week, with our goal to send the mobile friendly e-News at Noon (EST). As the tour moves, we will adjust accordingly to keep you ahead of the action.
The idea is to provide “one-stop shopping” and an easy navigation tool to save time as you follow the tour each week. we’re OPEN to suggestions, too, as our subscription base builds.
Please feel free to share the missive and encourage your friends, family, favorite golfers or your rival Fantasy Golf players to sign-up for their very own subscription.

About PGA Tour Brunch
PGATourLunch is now @PGATourBrunch which reflects the fact we’ll occasionally send this missive for your early bird brunch time reading, rather than our normal Noon timing.
Overall, this e-Newsletter is designed to give golf fans basic news and updated information on the PGA Tour and its tournament of the week. It will arrive in your inbox by Noon (ET) six days a week (not Tuesdays). As the tour switches time zones, we adjust accordingly.
While there’s a glut of e-News flooding your inbox every morning, PGA Tour Brunch will provide you with some interesting reading for lunchtime. We are not affiliated with the PGA Tour or any tournament but rather an independent news outlet. As we continue beta testing, we will offer a limited amount of advertising and partnerships.
We’re providing a one-stop shop to save time.
This title is now a stand-alone subscription-based e-Newsletter on Substack. We are offering the most value at the lowest possible price and also have a special Holiday Gift Special (see below). We are considering expansion to the NBA and other sports. Boston-based @SoxLunch is a sister publication. Please let us know what you think.
Enjoy the PNC Championship and the Holidays. We’ll be back in full-time action on January 6, 2021.
Lastly, PGA Tour Brunch is a great Holiday Gift for your favorite Golf Fan, Daily Fantasy Golf player or general sports fan, so we’ve created a special holiday offer for you.
