Palm Harbor, FL-- With EverBank Financial Corporation on board as presenting sponsor for this year, PGA Tour players like John Daly hope they continue to sponsor the Tampa Bay Championship.
Without a title sponsor for 2014, the tournament would be in danger of being dropped from the PGA Tour schedule.
History shows that presenting sponsors, can develop into title sponsors. That's what tournament organizers are hoping... that EverBank likes what they see this week, and want to continue their relationship.
John Daly is playing this year on a sponsor's exemption, and as a Clearwater resident, knows the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook very well...
"I've come here a lot of years... Even when they had the JC Penney in the 80's and 90's," John Daly told 10 News before the Chi Chi Rodriguez Academy Pro-Am on Monday. "They get plenty of crowds here... Hopefully EverBank will see that, and come on board for a few years."
The tournament tees off Thursday morning.
