PGA OPENS '95 SEASON AMIDST CONTROVERSY
Published January 5, 1995
In today's WASHINGTON POST, Leonard Shapiro examines the "dark clouds hovering on the horizon" for the PGA Tour as it begins its 1995 season today in Carlsbad, CA. Those "dark clouds" refer to the four-year investigation by the Federal Trade Commission of tour rules regarding conflicting events and TV appearances and the proposed World Tour. Results of the FTC investigation are expected "any day now" with the ruling expected to say that the rules "constitute a restraint of trade and are anti-competitive" (WASHINGTON POST, 1/5).
