PGA TOUR'S FINCHEM REPORTS THAT NORMAN HAS BACKED OFF

     PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem reported that after a
phone conversation with Greg Norman, one of the organizers of the
World Golf Tour, and said that Norman "indicated that he would
not support any venture that would damage the PGA Tour, our
tournaments or their sponsors."  Finchem, in a statement:  "It
was a cordial conversation in which we both agreed that a
confrontation would not be in the best interests of the game of
golf.  I appreciate Greg's reevaluation of this situation.  I
also was pleased that he was receptive to providing us and other
golf organizations around the world with this input as we
consider the future development of increased international
competition" (PGA Tour).  Terry Kelley, the World Golf Tour's Dir
of Communications, said Finchem's words "sounded suspicious.  We
were under the impression that it was a courtesy call.  Norman
would have called us if he was re-evaluating his support" (Steve
Hershey, USA TODAY, 12/2).
