Note: Starting today, September 6th, Crawford's Sports Biz 59 Seconds will become a daily part of Crawford's Golf Daily. This actually was a suggestion of a great reader, who said golf fans love sports business and I agree. So each day you can not only get great golf information from this site, but you be able to read a pertinent fact about sports business in 59 seconds or less. Thanks for reading, as always.
