Las Vegas, Nevada (February 17, 2014)--It seemed like two champions of the 2014 Las Vegas World Amateur golf tournament must have been paid off by tournament organizers to speak in such superlatives about the tournament.

"All of the golf courses were exemplary, the tournament organizers were friendly and professional, and, in my honest opinion, this was one of the best tournaments I've every played in, and I've played about forty of these type of events."  --By Brian Hurlburt.
