    Long-running Disney event secures sponsor, future

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Four decades ago, when the Happiest Place on Earth was still a Florida swamp, Walt Disney personally circled his troops and decreed that when Disney World formally opened its gates, he wanted to host a PGA Tour event.

    In the very same year.

    Lo and behold, when the park opened in 1971, the turnstiles for the resort's first golf tournament hummed too, with legendary Jack Nicklaus winning the first three Disney titles in succession in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Given the history, old Walt would be pleased to know that one of the oldest continuously staged tournaments on the circuit will continue, since the event's tenuous sponsorship status has all but been resolved after a year of uncertainty.
