ANDERSEN'S GOLD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GETS A HOME IN ARIZONA

     The finals of Anderson Consulting's World Championship of
Golf, which has the best players from golf tours around the world
(according to the SONY rankings) competing for a $3.65M purse,
will be held in Scottsdale in December 1995.  The Anderson
Consulting Championship is sanctioned by the PGA Tour, PGA
European Tour, Japan PGA Tour, Austral-Asian Tour and FNB Tour of
South Africa.  The event is the world's richest with the winner
receiving $1M and the runner up receives $500,000.  "Big money
postseason events in the past had been greeted with mixed
reactions from the game's best players," but PGA Commissioner Tim
Finchem feels the event "will be very well-received."  ESPN
carries the semifinals and ABC the final.  Over 300 hours of TV
coverage from the regionals, semi-final and final rounds will be
aired in over 40 countries (Bill Huffman, ARIZONA REPUBLIC,
10/20).
