PICTURE PERFECT? CANON MAY RE-UP HARTFORD PGA TOUR EVENT

          Canon "is close" to signing a four-year extension with
     the Greater Hartford Open (GHO) as part of the PGA Tour's
     "new plan to get long-term commitments from title sponsors,"
     according to Bruce Berlet of the HARTFORD COURANT.  The
     "stumbling block," however, is an additional multimillion
     dollar investment in the purse, which is expected to total
     more than $3M by 2002.  Canon increased the purse this year
     by $500,000, to $2M, bringing its total commitment for prize
     money and TV spots "to a reported" $5M.  Canon's GHO
     contract expires this year (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/5).
