....ya, that's the ticket!
In a Golf World Monday item on the Tiger accident anniversary, Ron Sirak reports that Camp Ponte Vedra and specifically Tim Finchem are feeling the pressure to get ratings up in early 2011 as they head into television contract negotiations. Part of the grand plan is to beg Tiger to add a west coast event.
That ought to really make the networks forget all about ratings decline and the money lost in the last deal.
Manwhile, Geoff Russell follows up on the designated tournaments' demise and quotes a tournament director pinning Tiger and Phil for its fall, while a source in Tiger's camp says the decision came from the tour. Which is probably true. Right after they received word that a pair of certain somebodies were not in favor!
