GOLF CHANNEL OFFERS AWARD FOR SCORE THAT CAN'T BE ACHIEVED

     The Golf Channel announced that it will award $1M to the
first pro player on the PGA Tour, LPGA, Senior PGA or Nike Tour
who scores a "59" or lower in regular tournament play.  The bonus
will award $500,000 to the player and $250,000 apiece to the
tour's charity and the charity of tournament at which the feat
was accomplished.  Of the $500,000 that is designated for
charity, $100,000 will be earmarked for programs introducing golf
to the inner city.  Only two pros have ever reached the sub 60
plateau in tournament play (Golf Channel).
