GETTING BEHIND THE FTC'S PROBE OF THE PGA TOUR

     In this week's "Inside Golf" section of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED,
Tim Rosaforte writes that "there has been speculation" that IMG
Chair Mark McCormack "sicced the FTC" on the PGA Tour.
McCormack, who sponsors tournaments featuring IMG players
worldwide, would have "the most to gain should the Tour have to
alter its ways."  The proposed World Golf Tour would also benefit
(SI, 1/23 issue).  In Washington, John Hawkins comes out in favor
of the PGA Tour: "Give me a sport run by an entity that has shown
unabashed success at satisfying the public.  Not one run by a
federal bureaucrat" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 1/22).
