NO GUARANTEE FOR PRESIDENT'S CUP RETURN TO VIRGINIA
Published September 19, 1994
Despite the success of this weekend's President's Cup, there is no guarantee that the PGA Tour event will return to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Lake Manassas, VA, in '96. RTJ President Bobby Russell said the club and the PGA Tour "have a handshake agreement on holding the event here again in two years," although there is no guarantee on its return. PGA Tour Commissioner Tom Finchem is concerned about the limited viewing area for the spectators, which reduces the amount of tickets that can be sold. There is a "desire to expand the event, which might mean bigger ticket sales now that the Tour will have two years to sell the event" (John Hawkins, WASHINGTON TIMES, 9/19).
