ANDERSEN'S GOLD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GETS A HOME IN ARIZONA
Published October 20, 1994
The finals of Anderson Consulting's World Championship of Golf, which has the best players from golf tours around the world (according to the SONY rankings) competing for a $3.65M purse, will be held in Scottsdale in December 1995. The Anderson Consulting Championship is sanctioned by the PGA Tour, PGA European Tour, Japan PGA Tour, Austral-Asian Tour and FNB Tour of South Africa. The event is the world's richest with the winner receiving $1M and the runner up receives $500,000. "Big money postseason events in the past had been greeted with mixed reactions from the game's best players," but PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem feels the event "will be very well-received." ESPN carries the semifinals and ABC the final. Over 300 hours of TV coverage from the regionals, semi-final and final rounds will be aired in over 40 countries (Bill Huffman, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/20).
