Mike Whan Appears In-Studio On Golf Channel To Discuss Various LPGA Issues
Published March 10, 2011
GROUP EFFORT: CME Group earlier this week announced it was going to title sponsor the LPGA's season-ending event, the CME Group Titleholders. Whan said CME Group "has actually been doing things with the LPGA for a few years," as the company has a "big conference at the end of the year each year in Naples, Florida, and they've invited a lot of players down to participate." Whan added, "Our players really close the deal. As commissioner, I've learned long ago that if it's about me we're going to be in a lot of trouble. But if I let it be about the players and what goes on in-between the ropes, I just have to stay out of the way of that." ("Morning Drive," Golf Channel, 3/10).
