GOLF MAGAZINE'S TIGER TIPS DON'T IMPEDE ON GOLF DIGEST DEAL

          Featuring Tiger Woods on its cover next to the headline
     "Let Tiger Teach You" was "[p]retty bold posturing" by Golf
     Magazine, "given that competitor" Golf Digest has signed
     Woods to contribute "exclusive instructional articles,"
     according to GOLFWEEK's "The Forecaddie."  Golf Magazine
     "apparently dodged a legal bullet by adding a second,
     smaller headline on the cover: 'Jim McLean points out what
     you can really learn from Tiger's game.'"  IMG's Hughes
     Norton, Woods' agent, declined to comment, as did Golf
     Magazine Editor-in-Chief George Peper.  But Golf Digest
     Editor Jerry Tarde said, "I think they certainly went to the
     edge.  It's in the eye of the beholder whether or not they
     went over the edge" (GOLFWEEK, 12/6 issue).
