EVENT & ATTRACTION NOTES
Published December 4, 1997
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).
