The buzz in the Detroit sports/business circles is that Dow Chemical Co. might be interested in sponsoring a Professional Golf Association event next year in Michigan. The Detroit News got the latest round of discussion started with an Oct. 9 story, "PGA Tour could come to Detroit in fall 2011." That story did not mention Midland, Mich.-based Dow Chemical, but it did say that the Detroit Golf Club had already had some serious discussions with an unnamed potential sponsor. Detroit's WJRT-ABC TV affiliate made the connection between the PGA and Dow in an Oct. 11 report, "Dow may sponsor Detroit PGA event." The WJRT report notes that GolfWeek magazine earlier this summer mentioned that Dow was interested in sponsoring a PGA event.
