The Story

The theme for the tournament was created from a letter written by a close friend, whose words inspired Lala Hitch.

To Jim, a friend that cannot be replaced.

I got to know you real well about the beginning of Junior High. You and I took guitar lessons for a long time together. We played our guitars together in school, and at home. I always admired you for your honesty, and leadership. Two very important factors of which you possessed. During our freshmen year we started playing golf, and that’s when I really got to know you. Out on the golf course you get to know a person real well, because you’re with them practically every day. It’s going to be hard to continue on in Golf this season without you there to help us. I really think that you would want us to keep going, and win State. That’s what you wanted most of all.

I suppose if there’s a Golf Course in Heaven, you’ll be on it night and day, “Striving for Perfection”.
