ATLANTA (AP) -- The PGA Tour announced Monday the AT&T Classic will not return to Atlanta in 2009. The tournament, formerly known as the BellSouth Classic, has been held in Atlanta for 40 years but lost AT&T as its title sponsor in December.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said the lack of a title
sponsor "has necessitated the move in order to solidify the
schedule for the future."
The Atlanta Classic Foundation was unable to find a new title
sponsor. Finchem said Atlanta may instead host a Champions Tour
event to continue the Classic's tradition of contributing to
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
