Title sponsor signed for Tampa event

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — The PGA Tour found a title sponsor for its March tournament in the Tampa Bay area Wednesday when Transitions Optical, Inc., signed a four-year deal that keeps in tact the tour's Florida swing.

The Transitions Championship will be held March 19-22 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook.

Even though it is considered one of the toughest tournament courses in Florida, the event was in jeopardy when it lost PODS as a title sponsor this year. It now has its third title sponsor in four years.

Sean O'Hair won the tournament in March for his second career victory.
