There will be a special competition for past Logger Golfers.

Ben Graham was a standout golfer for Libby High School before graduating in 1973. He is included in the Libby High School Hall of Fame. In college, he was an NCAA All American for three years before turning pro in 1978.

Graham was a teacher at a golf school in Stratton, Vermont, when his life ended at 30. Graham died in 1985 in an early-morning car accident near Happy’s Inn while on an ice fishing trip to McGregor Lake.

The Ben Graham Tournament honors his life and commitment to golf, especially kids playing golf. Proceeds from the tournament go to the support of youth golf in Libby.

In the release, organizers offered thanks to all donating businesses and individuals that make it a special event.
