PGA TOUR EYES STOP IN SEATTLE AT NICKLAUS-DESIGNED COURSE
Published March 19, 1998
PGA Tour VP Duke Butler puts Seattle's chances of becoming a Tour stop in '99 at "about" 90% and says the search for corporate sponsors is under way, according to Craig Smith of the SEATTLE TIMES. Butler: "We're going to go straight forward on the Seattle path at least until June 1 or so. If we have corporate support by then, we're definitely coming there for an August event in 1999." The Tour is looking for a single sponsor to step forward with about $2M for title sponsorship, or it would search for "three or four" presenting sponsors (SEATTLE TIMES, 3/18).
