ATLANTA PGA STOP TO MOVE TO NEW TPC COURSE AT SUGARLOAF

     The Atlanta Classic Foundation voted 40-4 last night to
agree in principle to move its $1.3M PGA Tour event from
Marietta's Atlanta Country Club to the under-construction
Sugarloaf Country Club.  The meeting included a presentation by a
PGA Tour contingent headed by Commissioner Tim Finchem.  Although
the move was approved, it is pending finalization of some details
over the next few weeks.  The PGA Tour's Tournament Policy Board
recently gave "tentative approval" for the course to become a
Tournament Players Club, likely TPC at Sugarloaf.  The goal to
play there in '97 is "not definite" (Glenn Sheeley, ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION, 6/21).
