EVENT & ATTRACTION NOTES

          Doral-Ryder Open tournament officials "have not capped
     ticket sales, but they're considering it," due to the
     participation of Tiger Woods, according to Randall Mell of
     the Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL.  The event was expected to
     attract more than 100,000 fans for the week without Woods,
     but his presence has "driven up attendance by as much as
     40,000 at other events."  The GTE Byron Nelson Classic and
     the MasterCard Colonial both closed their gates with
     sellouts when Woods played last summer (SUN-SENTINEL, 3/3).
     ...The Visitors Bureau of Greater Kansas City is expecting
     27,000 fans -- about 70% from out of town -- at this week's
     Big 12 men's and women's basketball tournaments.  Execs
     expect the combined spending to top $18M (K.C. STAR, 3/3).
