Its hard to describe the amount of money Joe Hardy poured into that golf course, the John Daly Teaching Center, the accomodations for the players, paid for roads to be built that would help with traffic.
He also lobbied hard for a better tournament date in mid-summer and got it. Next year the 84 Lumber Classic was going to be the week after the US Open which is a pretty prime date especially with the US Open being played at Oakmont in 2007.
I would have loved to be on the conference call between 84 Lumber and the PGA Tour. "Um, yeah, thanks for that prime date and all but we are not sponsoring anymore, thanks again though".
I am very anxious to read more about this in the papers tommorow.
