CELEBRITY PLAYERS GOLF TOUR LOOKS TO GET AIR AND ACCELERATE
Published February 19, 1999
The Celebrity Players golf tour (CPT) starts today in FL with the Dan Marino FirstPlus Financial Celebrity Invt'l, which is expected to raise "about" $300,000 for charity, according to Randall Mell of the Ft. Lauderdale SUN- SENTINEL. Among those competing in the event are Marino, Broncos QB John Elway and Braves P Greg Maddux. Meanwhile, Michael Jordan has told CPT execs that "he intends to play in at least three" events this season. CPT Assistant Dir Kelly Sullivan: "Michael Jordan could affect this tour like nobody else on the planet." The CPT begins its third year with 12 events which will offer more than $3M in prize money. Mell writes tour execs are "working hard to increase its exposure," and the Tour is in talks with The Golf Channel about "a possible alliance" (SUN-SENTINEL, 2/19).
