PGA Tour set to announce new sponsor for Tampa event

RSS

Sources have confirmed to GolfChannel.com that the PGA Tour is set to announce a new title sponsorship for the Tampa, Fla., Tour stop at 10 a.m. ET.

There long had been speculation that the Tampa date would go to the Puerto Rico Open, but the source said an 11th-hour sponsor agreed to step up and save the annual spring stop.

Innisbrook is one of the more popular courses among Tour players, but the stop has struggled to maintain a longterm title sponsorship. Friday's announcement will be the sixth different sponsor for the event in the past 11 years.
