NEW GOLF TOUR MAY ONLY BE A PAR TWO IN 1995
Published December 19, 1994
The World Golf Tour, originally slated for eight events in 1995, may only play two events according to U.S. PGA Tour Policy Board member Brad Faxon. Faxon, who made the comment Friday during play at the Johnnie Walker World Championship, said the events would take place during times that wouldn't conflict with U.S., European and Japanese tours. One event would be opposite the Shark Shootout, a December event organized by World Tour backer Greg Norman. The other World Tour event would go up against the Johnnie Walker tournament, which might be moved to Puerto Rico. World Golf Tour Exec Dir John Montgomery was evidently "slipping contract offers under players' doors this week with no apparent takers" (Joe Concannon, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/17).
