Greensboro BUYCOM Event Dies


The Buy.Com Greensboro Open has died, apparently a victim of poor dates in June and July.
The tournament was played the last week of June in two of the three years of the event and during July in the other. Officials had repeatedly asked Buy.Com administrators to give them fall dates, but were refused.
Spokesmen for the Jaycees, who sponsored the event, said they lost $178,000 in the three years. Attendance has dropped 25 percent from last year to this year.
