Pennsylvania Classic to have new home

| Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2002

The Pennsylvania Classic, although in only its third year of existence, had made something of a niche for itself with its unique format.

Alternating between the eastern part of the state - at Waynesborough Country Club this week - and the western - it was held at Laurel Valley Golf Club in Ligonier, and it was the only PGA Tour event to switch between sites on a yearly basis.

Ending weeks of rumors that had been circulating concerning the struggling event, an "unofficial" announcement was made Sunday at a media event at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa that the Pennsylvania Classic will start calling the Mystic Rock Golf Course there its new home.

While the official announcement concerning the event won't be made until Sept. 19, the Tribune-Review has learned that the tournament will be held in Farmington for the next four years, meaning this week's tournament at Waynesborough will be the last of the cross-state flips.

It also means Laurel Valley once again will be without a professional golf event, even though the Pennsylvania Classic was scheduled to be played there next September.

Laurel Valley hosted the tournament last year. It was won by Robert Allenby.
