Tournament at Doral needs new sponsor
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- The PGA Tour is looking for a new title sponsor for its World Golf Championship at Doral after CA decided not to renew its contract.
CA, an information technology software company, had been the title sponsor the past four years. CA spokesman Bill Hughes said Wednesday the company will continue looking for marketing opportunities in golf, just not as the sponsor of a tournament.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem has said he was confident the tournament would return to Doral next year, even if it has to find a new sponsor. Finchem said during the final round Sunday the tour had been speaking to a number of companies.
"We look forward to identifying future opportunities with CA to align its marking objectives with the PGA Tour and professional golf," the tour said in a statement Wednesday.
