The World Golf Tour arrived Thursday, a little uncertain of its prospects off the tee. Will the venture be a shot straight down the fairway or an ugly snap hook? At a news conference at Sherwood Country Club, where the Franklin Funds Shark Shootout begins today, Greg Norman and John Montgomery announced an eight-event, $25-million tour for the top 30 players in the world. The World Tour probably will begin next March, although it already has drawn fire from golf's Establishment, the PGA Tour.

The "I Swear" Kentucky heartthrob is back with yet another album full of songs expressing utter devotion and rapt attention to his sweetheart. "Love Is Our Business" adheres to the romance-novel fantasy formula that's helped him sell some 15 million albums in recent years, but it has enough lyrical spunk and musical kick to make it stand out. The only place anything remotely resembling pain or regret sneaks in is in the post-breakup ballad "When Your Arms Were Around."

Montgomery has probably sold more albums the last two years (5 million) than any country artist outside of Garth Brooks, and his new single, "I Can Love You Like That," is off to a lightning start on the charts. So you would expect some of the striking vocal character and independent spirit associated with country's greatest talents. But Montgomery is an ordinary singer with relatively timid instincts. Why the appeal?

With his rugged good looks and sturdy 6-foot-1 frame, John Michael Montgomery is to country music what Michael Bolton is to mainstream pop. He's a heartthrob who has a way of making women swoon with his poignant, romantic ballads. And like Bolton, Montgomery--who performs at the Pond of Anaheim on Sunday night--has had to deal with detractors who have suggested that's he's more "himbo" than a singer worthy of serious artistic consideration.

There he was at the Crazy Horse on Monday, a good-lookin' young dude from Kentucky, giving his country music a rock 'n' roll jolt and drawing screams from the ladies in the audience. Put down your weapons--it wasn't Billy Ray Cyrus. Actually, when all the dust finally clears, John Michael Montgomery should easily eclipse Achy Breaky Billy as their native state's true contribution to '90s country music.

John Michael Montgomery was in the center of country's spotlight just 24 hours ago, a swaggering Kentuckian in a black-and-red leather jacket on national television from the Universal Amphitheatre. He was named the Academy of Country Music's best new male artist and singer of the song of the year.
