Originally slated for the week of Aug. 23-26 at the Twin Warriors Golf Club in Santa Ana Pueblo, tournament co-chairman Bill Archibeck claimed that the economic slowdown over the last several months have made conditions nearly impossible to hold the event.
The PGA Tour made a real effort and tried to help in every way they could to sustain the event, stated Archibeck, but in the end, we really had no choice but to cancel the event.
The New Mexico Classic, which was won last year by Jason Gore, was to be played for the first time this year at Twin Warriors.
I am really disappointed, Archibeck went on to say. I am confident (Twin Warriors) would have been one of the most difficult tests the pros would have faced on the tour.
