Milwaukee PGA Tour organizer dissolving


MILWAUKEE ' The organization that handles the annual PGA Tour stop in Milwaukee is dissolving after failing to find a sponsor.

The move virtually guarantees the Tour won't return to Milwaukee next year and leaves the long-term future of professional golf in the area on shaky ground.

A tournament spokesman confirmed Thursday that Milwaukee Golf Charities Inc. is dissolving. PGA Tour chief of operations Rick George said the search for a title sponsor to replace U.S. Bank continues, but acknowledged that officials don't have any progress to report.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported the organizers' decision to dissolve.
