Organizer Roger Roland said the tournament
raised over $3,500 for the Chuck Gates Youth Golf Endowment established two
years ago through the city of Ketchum. The tournament proceeds over seven years
are approaching $30,000.

Each year, the program helps over 150 boys and girls ages 6-15 with instruction,
equipment and play on local courses.
