08:26 AM ET 10.21 | With the LPGA's self-imposed deadline to select its next commissioner fast approaching, the tour's short list is getting shorter. Several of the LPGA's top candidates have dropped out of the race. Arlen Kantarian, former chief executive of the U.S. Tennis Association, and Jeffrey Pollack, commissioner of the World Series of Poker, have withdrawn as candidates, according to Sports Business Daily. Likewise, WNBA commissioner Donna Orender, who was considered a frontrunner, earlier had pulled her name from consideration. Kantarian, who is a senior adviser to the NFL's Miami Dolphins, pulled out because the LPGA couldn't meet his salary demands, Golfweek has learned from a source with intimate knowledge of the selection process. The same source said that Pollack was considered a darkhorse among the finalists.
