Beth Ann Baldry reports the great news that interim LPGA Commish Marty Evans and team have signed up Owens Corning and the Jamie Farr Classic for another year. Got to love the not-so-subtle takeway quote aimed at the former Commish:
The LPGA’s good-news train keeps rolling. Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic announced a one-year extension Sept. 2, keeping a much-needed domestic stop on the tour’s summer schedule.
“I just want to commend (LPGA commissioner) Marty Evans and her team for their willingness to pursue a livable business model for us,” said Judd Silverman, executive director of the event.
But don't get too excited just yet, says Gene Yasuda, who analyzes the prospects of other events in trouble.
