Tuesday's FBR Open dinner -- a formal affair for around 700 people -- was cut short after an acrobat who was performing stunts involving chains fell from the rafters and died.
With the economy in shambles and the PGA Tour quietly struggling to keep certain sponsors, some of the more elaborate events are kept quiet, so as not to flash wealth in the public face. It certainly can't help matters when just before the first tournament featuring one of the Big Two, a performer (not pictured) dies while providing entertainment.
