THE PRICE IS NOT RIGHT WITH BUCKING THE PGA TOUR

     Nick Price, the world's top ranked golfer, said that his
friendship with World Golf Tour organizer Greg Norman is a "non-
factor" in his thought process on whether to join Norman's
proposed new tour:  "My allegiance is to the PGA Tour and I am
not going to jeopardize that one bit.  It they can work together
and get this going somehow, no problem.  I'll do it.  But if the
PGA Tour doesn't give its blessing, then I'm not going to be able
to play. ... Everybody thinks I'm right alongside there with
Greg. ... He never asked me for my commitment.  He asked me for
my support, but there's big differences between commitment and
support" (Glenn Sheeley, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/7).
     WOMEN'S SENIOR TOUR:  The Volvo Legends Series for women 45-
and-over will be announced Thursday in Phoenix.  Jane Blalock,
who is organizing the new tour, said she is among 24 players who
accepted invitations to join the venture.  Others include Sandra
Haynie, JoAnne Carner, Kathy Whitworth, Sandra Palmer, Judy
Rankin, Carol Mann and Donna Caponi.  Two $150,000 tournaments
are scheduled for '95 in Phoenix and Atlanta.  A third is in the
works for Orange County, Chicago or Dallas.  Blalock envisions
six events in '96 and as many as 12 soon after.  Blalock said the
LPGA is not affiliated with the Volvo Series, but "neither is it
opposed to the project" (Thomas Bonk, L.A. TIMES, 12/6).
