Jim was our AGT Director of Tournament Operations from the very first event in 2011. He set up our courses, marked the courses, always determined to set up a fair course. He constantly checked course statistics after the first day of play and adjusted yardages, if necessary. He frequently was called upon for rule interpretations. If he wasn’t sure of a rule, he spent time on his phone to get an answer from a rules specialist. He always took the time to explain to a player the rule. In addition to all of that, he produced our score sheets which were spectacular.
On Wednesday, January 27, Jim became another victim of the COVID-19 virus. He was the heart of the AGT. We will miss him and keep him in our hearts every day. RIP, dear friend.

Dick Shaiper brought years of tournament experience to the AGT. The stories he could tell from riding the bus as a caddie to Algonquin to becoming a PGA pro are so memorable. Thanks Dick for all your support for our first ten years of existence. We will miss you.
