The most notable thing about the newspaper ad for
the tournament (shown above) is that the eventual winner Terry Funk
was not listed as a participant!
The article at right appeared in the Greensboro
News & Record the day of the tournament. It was written by staff
sports writer Bob Heller, who did an excellent job on both this
piece as well as the story that followed the tournament.
Special thanks to Mark Eastridge for providing the
newspaper clippings from this event.
