John Duty of Hurricane shot the Little General Stores Low Round of the Day at Thursday’s West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA) Senior Series event at Mingo Bottom Golf Course in Elizabeth with a (+1) 73.

“The wind was tough today, but I still was able to keep the ball in play and capitalize on four birdie putts,” Duty said.
