...PGATour.com more specifically. It seems that in the event of Tropical Storm Andrea making landfall Sunday evening, the Tour has enlisted Kenny G to serenade the champion, thus ensuring that all but close family and friends will stick around for this low point in
major championship The Players history.
Thanks to reader Robert for this April Fool's Day worthy item:
In the first year of a new tradition, immediately following THE PLAYERS Championship closing ceremony on the TPC Clubhouse event lawn on Sunday, May 13, internationally-renowned musician and avid golfer Kenny G will perform a salute to the 2007 PLAYERS champion.
Does this mean he's going to do this every year? Or is there still hope they might enlist Celine Dion for year two? Fingers crossed here...
"It's a year of firsts for THE PLAYERS, and we looked for opportunities to enhance the Closing Ceremony to give guests a special finale to the tournament," said Executive Director Brian Goin. "We hope the crowning of a new champion coupled with a musical performance by Kenny G will be an ideal conclusion to a very special PLAYERS Championship on Mother's Day."
By the way, whose idea was it to end this thing on Mother's Day?
