MOUSE TRAPPED? Golf Channel's John Feinstein noted the PGA Tour Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Disney World was likely played for the last time last weekend after 42 years. Feinstein: "The Tour says it has no sponsor for next year, so sayonara Mickey Mouse. In the past, the Tour has kept the tournament going for a year or two with its own money until a sponsor can be found. Apparently, Disney doesn’t rate." Feinstein noted PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem "doesn't have to worry about lockouts or strikes," but he does have to concern himself with corporate sponsorships, which "these days come and go like the Disney World train." Feinstein: "He and his staff have done amazing work finding sponsors in recent years in a staggering economy. Can’t they produce one more miracle? Can’t they keep Mickey Mouse on tour? If not, he will surely be missed” (“Golf Central,” Golf Channel, 11/13).
