  • YEAR OF THE TIGER MEANS NO CAMERAS ON THE GOLF COURSE

              Citing "growing player complaints that clicking
         shutters are messing with golfers' minds," the PGA Tour has
         "barred spectator snapshots" during the AT&T Pebble Beach
         National Pro-Am tournament, according to John Woolfolk of
         the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS.  Spectator David Buchanan, from
         Modesto, CA: "This tournament used to be about fun.  But how
         can it be about fun when they take our cameras away?" 
         Woolfolk wrote that the "large and noisy crowds drawn by
         Tiger Woods at last year's tournament have been blamed for
         the camera ban."  As for the celebrities in the tournament,
         some "shrugged off the distraction."  Alice Cooper: "I'm
         used to people yelling and throwing things at me on stage. 
         It doesn't bother me a bit.  Cameras are the least of my
         worries."  Northern CA Golf Assoc. spokesperson Adam Brady
         said that despite the camera ban, ticket sales are up 20%
         this year (John Woolfolk, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 1/30).
