Buick Switches Sponsorship to Tampa Bay


Buick is shifting its title sponsorship from Callaway Gardens in Georgia to the Innisbrook Resort in the Tampa Bay area. They will likely get Tiger Woods in the deal, sources say.
The tournament, which will be played in Palm Harbor, Fl., will be in a new time slot the week before the Tour Championship. Woods is expected to play because he lives only a couple of hours away in Greater Orlando, Fl. He has a five-year endorsement contract with Buick.
Callaway Gardens is the only Buick-sponsored tournament that Woods has never played. He came to the site in his rookie year of 1996, but departed without playing, citing exhaustion.
