EVENT NOTES: WOMEN'S WORLD CUP HITS 300,000 IN TICKET SALES

          The Women's World Cup '99 has sold 300,000 tickets to
     date, compared to the 112,000 sold for the WWC '95 in
     Denmark.  For the WWC '99 opening round doubleheader at
     Giants Stadium, 40,000 tickets have been sold, and 30,000
     tickets have been sold to the Rose Bowl finale (WWC '99).
          FROM THE ROUGH: In S.F., Pat Sullivan wrote that a
     Women's Senior Golf Tour (WST) for players 40 and over could
     be formed, with three or four events in the first year and
     an "anticipated startup in 2000" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 4/5).
          ALL IN THE FAMILY CUP: CBS SportsLine's Mike Lurie
     writes that WTA Tour attendance "remains strong," with
     attendance up 7.85% over last year through 13 events.  Last
     week's Family Circle Cup drew a record paid attendance of
     97,081, an 18% increase over last year's record of 82,000
     (CBS SportsLine, 4/7).  Family Circle Ticket Manager Jeff
     Pankhurst said that the event drew "about" 102,000.  The
     tournament was sold out Friday-Sunday, with Friday's sellout
     marking "a first for the tournament" (POST & COURIER, 4/5).
