     Retiring LPGA Commissioner Charlie Mechem, at the eve of the
LPGA's first '95 event: "I don't think there is any question that
someday there will be a woman commissioner.  But I don't get any
sense that this time it must be a woman."  An 11 person search
committee, including eight players, has been formed to find a new
commissioner (Steve Hershey, USA TODAY, 1/12).  According to the
LPGA, the '95 season will be "its most successful season ever."
The schedule includes 38 events totaling over $24M in prize
money.  In addition, 26 tournaments will enjoy TV coverage   --
that's the most televised events ever for the LPGA in one season.
The added TV coverage includes a few events that will appear on
The Golf Channel (LPGA).
