Atlas Will Carry Junior Golf Banner

July 17, 1998

Larry Atlas, PGA professional at Woodley Lakes Golf Club in Van Nuys, will play 100 holes of golf on Monday in an attempt to raise money for junior golf programs in the area.

Monday is National Golf Day, sponsored by the PGA of America. Supporters can pledge a minimum of 25 cents per hole.

Atlas has been among the top fund-raisers in Southern California the last two years, raising about $14,000. The facility raising the most money will receive a visit from PGA Tour player Davis Love III, who will lead a junior golf clinic.

Mark Wipf, PGA professional at Saticoy Regional Park Golf Course in Ventura, will play a 100-hole marathon Aug. 26.
