PGA TOUR EYES STOP IN SEATTLE AT NICKLAUS-DESIGNED COURSE

          PGA Tour VP Duke Butler puts Seattle's chances of
     becoming a Tour stop in '99 at "about" 90% and says the
     search for corporate sponsors is under way, according to
     Craig Smith of the SEATTLE TIMES.  Butler: "We're going to
     go straight forward on the Seattle path at least until June
     1 or so.  If we have corporate support by then, we're
     definitely coming there for an August event in 1999."  The 
     Tour is looking for a single sponsor to step forward with
     about $2M for title sponsorship, or it would search for
     "three or four" presenting sponsors (SEATTLE TIMES, 3/18).
