The official tournament of capitalism

In a sad day for local golf fans in the D.C. area, Kemper Insurance yesterday ended their title sponsorship of the Kemper Open, the PGA Tour’s annual swing through Maryland’s Tournament Players Club at Avenel. The event itself will proceed on schedule this June as the “Capitol Open,” until a new sponsor can be found.

Personally, I’d love to rename the event the “Capitalism Open,” but I’m a few dollars shy of the estimated $6 million needed to secure the title sponsorship.
