Duramed Futures Tour Louisiana Pelican Classic offers a classic finish
It had all the trappings of a coming-out party. Vicky Hurst forewent college golf to head straight to the professional golf world last Fall. She was medalist at the Duramed Futures Tour qualifying school and tossed a 64 on Saturday to take a 4-stroke lead into the final round. On Sunday, Hurst made 16 pars, 1 birdie and 1 bogey, playing the type of golf one would expect from a wily veteran. Only trouble was, M.J. Hur didn’t read the script.
Hur played an unbelievable final nine holes, birdieing 11-13 to close within one. After a crushing, par-five bogey on 14, she regrouped, birdied 16 and 18 to force a playoff, then won on the ??? hole of a playoff. I write “???” because, some three hours after the playoff, the Duramed Futures Tour website has no summary, no pictures, no evidence other than a list of finishers, related to the final results.
The LPGA purchased the Futures Tour and is purportedly running the show. The LPGA site was notoriously slow on reporting playoffs and playoff winners, and the problem seems to have carried over to the DFT.

Jen Gleason from Clearwater (local to the Tampa Bay area here) had a hole-in-one...and got $500! Dang, we get more than that at some of the charity tournaments I play in!
Maybe you could talk Nessmith into sponsoring the hole-in-one stuff by TG/WG...and boost the payouts a little...unless there's a legal or technical reason why the prizes are only $500?? Good cheap advertising for the sites.
