The Nike Tour, "unable to attract enough corporate sponsors," will not return to Philadelphia in '98. The tournaments were operated locally by Allegheny Health, Education & Research Foundation (AHERF). AHERF Exec Dir Mary Ann Saleski: "It was a hard sell in a major city with a lot of other professional sports. The sense is that the Nike Tour is a good thing in a smaller market" (PHILA. INQUIRER, 12/4)....The '98 Senior PGA Tour schedule will stop in the Baltimore/DC area, as the State Farm Senior Classic will be played June 29-July 5 at Hobbit's Glen Golf Club in Columbia, MD (Senior PGA)....The NCAA women's soccer Final Four this weekend is sold out, with crowds of 9,025 expected at UNC-Greensboro Stadium (USA TODAY, 12/3).
