Leicester will be crowned champions if Tottenham fail to beat Chelsea on Monday night - but Claudio Ranieri insists he wont be watching. The Leicester boss was speaking after seeing his side edge closer to Premier League glory with a 1-1 draw against Manchester United; a result which takes them eight points clear at the top.A win would have guaranteed the first top-flight title in Leicesters 132-year history, but that could now be confirmed if Spurs fail to pick up three points at Stamford Bridge, live on Sky Sports 1 HD, from 7pm on Monday. But Ranieri says he could miss the historic moment because he will be on a plane home following a short trip to Italy to visit his 96-year-old mother.He told Sky Sports: I would like to watch the match, but I think I am on a flight back from Italy, so its difficult for me to watch the match. Wes Morgan celebrates his equaliser for Leicester at Old Trafford Maybe when I land I will know the result. Yes, really.Now I go back to Italy and tomorrow [Monday] at 7pm I fly back and I wont watch the match.For us its important to continue to dream and continue to work. Three matches ago, I said in my mind Tottenham will win all the matches and we are very, very concentrated on this. After the game, Ranieri offered some words of support to Louis van Gaal Wes Morgans header earned Leicester a point after they had fallen behind to Anthony Martials eighth-minute strike at Old Trafford.And Ranieri said he was delighted with the performance of his players and was pleased with the response to their early set-back in the absence of leading scorer Jamie Vardy. Anthony Martial had given Manchester United the lead He added: I wasnt worried because we have very good heart and I thought sooner or later wed react.Of course after the goal, I said we had to react mentally and fortunately at the first free-kick we scored a goal.The goal gave us more and more confidence. With Jamie away its more difficult for us because we are used to playing the ball for Jamie and stretching the opponent. Wes Morgan admitted Leicester had to work very hard for a point In this case they were more comfortable, pushed a lot and pressed in our half. It was difficult for us to play because they were pressing very well.For us, it was important to show our character and also our mentality. The beginning wasnt so good, but afterwards I was very happy with our performance.

SHANGHAI -- To get a sense of how much the landscape in golf is changing, consider the PGA Tour schedule next year. The Asia swing in October will have as many tournaments as the Florida swing in March.Perhaps this illustrates the suspicions seven years ago when PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem held a news conference on the final day of the HSBC Champions and whispers filled the room that it was the start of an Asian invasion.That was the first year the HSBC Champions, billed as Asias major, became a World Golf Championship.The PGA Tour added the CIMB Classic in Malaysia the following year. Justin Thomas won the seventh edition at Kuala Lumpur this year, and the next day the tour announced it had a 10-year deal with South Korean conglomerate CJ Corp. to sponsor an event in South Korea starting in 2017 that offers $9.25 million in prize money. Only the four majors, The Players Championship and the World Golf Championships have higher purses.Two days later, the PGA Tour celebrated the opening of a new Asian office in Tokyo.The PGA Tour Champions is going to Japan next year, though any regular PGA Tour event is not on the immediate horizon. Japan is hosting the Olympics in 2020. Any tournament beyond that likely would start with the World Cup and the Presidents Cup, which next has an open date on the international calendar in 2023.A weeks worth of Asian developments got the attention of the players. They now have the option of playing for $26 million over three straight weeks, although those tournaments are halfway around the world.It just seems like we should play at home, but Im not sure where the tour is trying to go, said Kevin Kisner when asked about the new tournament in South Korea. Obviously, they want to make it more of a world tour, which is great. Were playing for $9.25 million, but not all of us want to get on a plane and fly over there and play for it.Id rather have a $9.25 million purse in Aiken, South Carolina, he said with a wry smile because he lives off the 17th hole at Palmetto Golf Club. The economy is not growing fast enough in the U.S. to keep asking people to throw money at us.The LPGA Tour, ahead of the curve by necessity, is wrapping up a six-tournament swing through Asia this week.The PGA Tour is not headed down that road, not yyet and perhaps not ever.dddddddddddd The tour showed its strength when it remained fully sponsored domestically through the 2008 recession. The presence in Asia simply is recognizing where the growth is, and the tour would be foolish to ignore that.Japan is the second-largest golf market in the world. Paul Johnson, who heads up international affairs for the PGA Tour, said it has 14 sponsors that have significant business in Japan, and so a Tokyo office makes sense.Tournaments are one piece of the puzzle, and Johnson said events outside the country energizes our fan base.As sponsors globalize, we want to be in a position to work with them, Johnson said. There is a broader strategy that says we need to build our business outside the U.S. If you want to drive business, you have to be in the marketplace.No one is making players travel to Asia in October, especially after an Olympic year when three majors were crammed into a seven-week window ahead of the Rio Games.Among those who chose to sit out the HSBC Champions without injury or illness were Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and Zach Johnson. All have a history of being willing to travel except for Johnson, who hasnt played overseas (excluding the British Open and a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup) in a decade. Spieth, for example, is returning to the Australian Open in two weeks.However, players might feel a need to go to Asia so they dont fall too far behind at the start of the season. Having three events makes it easier to play in two of them, particularly if they arent eligible for the HSBC Champions.Over here is great, Ryan Moore said. Its good exposure for golf, its good exposure for the PGA Tour. Ive won twice in Asia (both times in Malaysia). Ive had success, so maybe Im the wrong person to ask.Meanwhile, the Florida swing in March will have only three PGA Tour events next year because the World Golf Championship at Doral has moved to Mexico City. It will be the first time that two WGCs are held outside the United States since the series began in 1999.Times are changing.---This story has been corrected to show the next open date for the Presidents Cup is in 2023.
