RODDY WILLIAMS: Good morning, everybody. Thank you very much for coming in and joining us today for the announcement of the 2006 venue of the World Golf Championships American Express Championship. First of all, I would like to welcome a number of dignitaries here today, Ed Moorhouse, the executive vice president of the PGA TOUR; Andrew Georgio, the chief executive of the PGA TOUR of Austral-Asia; and Louis Martin, the director of the Asian Tour. Thank you very much for joining us today.
On the table I would like to introduce on my right here, Jonathan Linen, the vice-chairman of American Express Championship; in the middle, Ken Schofield, executive director of the European Tour, today representing The International Federation of PGA TOURs; and on the far right, Chris Andrews, commercial director of The Grove.
Without further ado, I would like to first hand it over to Ken Schofield to say a few initial comments.
