Mike Whan Confident In More Than 30 Worldwide LPGA Tournaments In '14
Published November 20, 2013
MAKING STRIDES: Handel wrote if the LPGA is to "get more tournaments on national television, it must have dynamic personality as well as a dynamic player." Golf Channel analyst Mark Lye said, "They need a Nancy Lopez, that's what they need. Annika Sorenstam, she was great, Lorena Ochoa. She was cute, well spoken. Somebody bigger than life in my estimation." Lye added, "Whan is a whirlwind but he can't sell it if it doesn't sell. There has to be a need for it. They'll cover it if there's a need." Meanwhile, Lye and fellow Golf Channel analyst Frank Nobilo both said that the LPGA "has made great strides with its events" (Ft. Myers NEWS-PRESS, 11/19).
