Connor Ingels of New Haven has received the 2021 Larry Martin Sportsman of the Year Award.
This award is named after Larry Martin, known as “The Old Pro”, who founded the West Virginia Golf Association’s (WVGA) Junior Tour 37 years ago.
“This tour wouldn’t exist if not for Larry Martin,” explained today’s Tournament Director Cory Hoshor. “It was through his vision this award began eight years ago. People should know how special this award is, not only to those of us who conduct the Callaway Junior Tour for WVGA, but to those who have won it in years past.”
