TAYLOR COUNTY—Six members of the Tygart Lake Public Golf Course have qualified for the WV Amateur. 

The six are scheduled to compete at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs on Sunday, August 1 and Monday, August 2. 

Those who come out within the top 50 over the course of the two-day period will then advance and play on Tuesday, August 3 and Wednesday, August 4 for a chance at the coveted title: 101st WV Amateur Champion.  

Those making the trip and representing Taylor County at the tournament are recent Grafton High School graduate Christopher Miller, who qualified at Pipestem State Park on July 16, along with longtime golfers Adam Ware, Lucas Ware, Caden Moore, Matthew Allen and Buck Gower, who met the qualifications during The Pines in Morgantown, which took place on July 22.  

This will be no easy feat for these local men, as participants come from around the state and range in age from 15 to 60 plus years, making it very competitive to earn a spot at the WV Amateur.

Day one they will playing on the Meadows Course, while the second day will have golfers take to the Old White Course, which is well known for being a location where the PGA plays.  

The same two courses will be utilized for those who advance to the third and fourth rounds. 

Congratulations and best of luck to these Taylor County golfers!
