I hope that the sponsors here in Hawaii go all out to appease the PGA Tour as we REALLY need both The M-B and the Sony (Hawaiian) Open tournaments for a couple of reasons---1) we need there events for the golfing fans here as we are separated from the mainland by 2,500 miles of ocean and it's very expensive for us to have to fly to the mainland, add in car/hotel/food and whatever---not an inexpensive proposition!!

2) We need the tourism dollars!! Hawaii is down 20-25% in hotel bookings due to the economic downturn and since our idiotic legislature has NEVER YET even tried to diversify our economy, we are still very dependent on tourists to prop up our local economy---PLEASE VISIT!!!

Lastly, we have nice weather in Jan & Feb, and it's more likely to be nice here than anywhere else---c'mon Tiger/Phil?Ernie, have a heart!!

ps--my father started the Aloha Section PGA in 1973, served as Ex. Dir for over 20 years, and is in the Hawaii Golf Hall of Fame---he would roll over in his grave if he saw us lose these events.....

Hawaii's tourism dollars are down because your favorite son, one Barack "HUSSEIN" Obama has criminalized people and companies spending money on vacations and corporate travel!!
