Poor Steph Curry.
The PGA Tour encouraged the young fella to put his name on a proposed event for the PGA Tour that would have been a fall “cross-over” tournament this year.
Alas, one of the few remaining newspapers in our land, the San Francisco Chronicle, is reporting that the event won’t happen:
Here’s the Chronicle take:
The PGA Tour abandoned plans Tuesday to hold a new, Stephen Curry-hosted event at Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City in September.
Tour officials had anticipated announcing the new tournament in the next two weeks. They even held dates on the calendar (Sept. 19-22) for the fall portion of the 2019-20 season.
But negotiations with potential title sponsor Workday, the finance and human resources software company in Pleasanton, unexpectedly broke off. Tour officials didn’t have time to find another title sponsor, especially given the course changes Lake Merced would need to make in eight months.
Blah, once again, the PGA Tour has earned a prime spot in the Dog House.
