GETTING BEHIND THE FTC'S PROBE OF THE PGA TOUR
Published January 23, 1995
In this week's "Inside Golf" section of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, Tim Rosaforte writes that "there has been speculation" that IMG Chair Mark McCormack "sicced the FTC" on the PGA Tour. McCormack, who sponsors tournaments featuring IMG players worldwide, would have "the most to gain should the Tour have to alter its ways." The proposed World Golf Tour would also benefit (SI, 1/23 issue). In Washington, John Hawkins comes out in favor of the PGA Tour: "Give me a sport run by an entity that has shown unabashed success at satisfying the public. Not one run by a federal bureaucrat" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 1/22).
