MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Shh. . . You didn’t hear it from me but after a two-year absence, they’re back. The Hush Y’All paddles. Former sponsor Stanford Financial didn’t think they fit the company’s international image, said tournament director Phil Cannon. But with the sponsor out, Cannon revived the paddles (www.hushyall.com). The news received a “wild ovation” from the volunteers.
“The paddle are very indigenous to our tournament,” Cannon said.
