    Just wanted to send some praise over to the management of Zoar Golf Course for doing a class act job in running the tournament today for amateur seniors. The tournament was well run and sponsored. It cost players only $50 total for green fees & cart, payout of merchandise, skins game, and lunch afterward. The course was also in great shape. If only more amateur tournaments were run like this one at such a great value to our amateur players. I have never met the people there at the clubhouse until today but I want to give credit where credit is due. It is already on my tournament calendar for next year! Please send the USGA staff to Zoar for some training.
