BellSouth and Greensboro Raise Purses


Officials at the PGA Tour's BellSouth Classic announced that the event's purse will increase by an additional $200,000 to $3.3 million. This latest bump is in addition to a previously announced $300,000 increase, which raises the total to $500,000 above last year's purse.
'We have worked hard to make this a first-class event that both spectators and players look forward to each year,' said Jere Drummond, vice chairman of BellSouth Corporation. 'With the purse increased to $3.3 million, players have even more reason to come to Atlanta.'
The event will be played March 26-April 1 at the Tournament Players Club at Sugarloaf in Duluth. This year's winner will earn $594,000.
The Greater Greensboro Classic also announced a purse increase. The GGO will boost its prize money $500,000 to $3.3 million.
The event will be played April 23-29 at Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro, NC.
