Lajterman scramble moved to Twin Silos, tees off Sept. 6

The seventh annual Marcelo Lajterman Memorial Golf Scramble, held in New Jersey the past six years, will take place this year at Twin Silos Golf Course in Lavalette, W.Va.

The event tees off at noon Friday, Sept. 6, with dinner and an awards ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Cost to play is $100 per person or $400 per team.

The tournament is played in honor of Lajterman, a former place kicker/punter on the Marshall University football team who died along with 74 others in the 1970 Marshall plane crash. Lajterman was just 19 years old when he died.

The Lajterman family decided to move the tournament to the Huntington area this year. Proceeds, which are processed through the Marcelo Lajterman Memorial Scholarship Fund, benefit both athletic and academic endowments to Marshall. Checks should be made payable to the fund.

The top four or five teams will be awarded prizes, and there will be a closest to the pin contest.
