Hi Bruce,

 

Is a sponsorship thing ie money, or this "re-imaging the brand" true. Cannot see why you cannot have a tournament while changing things...?

 

Will it be back...?

 

thanks

He is probably conferring with Blacksnake before he makes a comment.

Thank you for your comments gentlemen!! and I have to admit I have been remiss in not replying to  trusty rusty's earlier post.

 

I would like to think they find a way to resurrect the Australian Masters just as is the case with the Australian Ladies Masters but that both have met a demise (temporary or otherwise) tells the story that it is hard to get and event like that out of the ground.

 

Perhaps because IMG had an involvement at the World Cup suggested that their focus was on making that happen late last year and that would be competing for sponsorship with any attempt to stage the Australian Masters.

 

I am not here to defend tournament organisers necessarily but have to say that getting a tournament up and running even with the relatively low purses we provide in this country is a very difficult task.

 

Even a $1.5 million event might require an overall budget of $4 -$5 million (TV taking perhaps as much as $650,000)

 

I did try to run this by Blacksnake but he was nowhere to be found !
