THE PRICE IS NOT RIGHT WITH BUCKING THE PGA TOUR
Published December 7, 1994
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).
