ROCKY ROAD: Castle Pines Golf Club Founder Jack Vickers, who founded the now-defunct PGA Tour The International event, said that he "would like to bring a high-profile golf event back to Castle Pines, but the economy has put any serious discussions on hold." Vickers: "We've talked about a Walker Cup. We've talked about the Presidents Cup. There have been a lot of different ideas. There's no target date, nothing in the mill." Vickers "did not rule out the possibility of returning an annual Tour event to Castle Pines" despite his "differences with PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem." But Vickers "hinted it would have to be a tournament with enough stature to attract Tiger Woods on a regular basis" (DENVER POST, 5/15).
