NO GUARANTEE FOR PRESIDENT'S CUP RETURN TO VIRGINIA

     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).
