PGA TOUR AND WORLD TOUR LOOK FOR MIDDLE GROUND
Published November 23, 1994
Officials representing the new World Golf Tour and two officials from Fox met with a key PGA Tour official to discuss the upstart tour's place in golf. PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem did not attend the meeting, and neither did World Tour organizer Greg Norman. Edward Moorhouse, Exec VP for Legal and Int'l Affairs, represented the PGA Tour, and John Montgomery Jr. and his brother Scott, representing the World Tour. Norman, was reached on vacation in Sydney: "We are willing to make adjustments and concessions and the U.S. Tour is working along the same lines. No one wants a confrontation. No one wants to batter their heads against the wall with lawyers for the next three years." In a statement released by the PGA Tour, Moorhouse indicated it was "highly unlikely anything could be accommodated in short term." He described yesterday's meeting as "an attempt to determine what kind of flexibility the promoters had in their scheduling plans." Moorhouse will present Finchem and the PGA Tour's Tournament Policy Board next week with a report on the meeting. The board will listen to Finchem's recommendation and then decide whether to allow PGA Tour pros to participate in the World Tour (Leonard Shapiro, WASHINGTON POST, 11/23).
