According to a morning interview on Golf Channel's 'Morning Drive' and a report on Yahoo! Sports, former No. 1 Martin Kaymer will not take PGA Tour membership in 2012.

In his interview on Golf Channel, he said:

"I put both schedules next to each other — the European Tour and PGA Tour — and unless they will change the amount of tournaments we have to play in America, I'm not going to join the PGA Tour, unfortunately," Kaymer said.

"It has been a crazy season so far already for me, and next year, if I play on both tours, tournament-wise, it will be too much."

Kaymer still has the opportunity to play in 10 PGA Tour events in 2012, including the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
