Indian Wells loses its sponsor
The Pacific Life Open is no more. Having sponsored the prestigious tournament in Indian Wells, California for seven years, Pacific Life is out. According to the tournament director, it was the tournament who showed Pacific Life the door, and not the other way around. The reason for doing so, however, has not been announced, making it sound rather mysterious, despite talk of "parting on very good terms, blah-blah-blah."
