Rotarians to host golf scramble tourney at Kaanapali Kai Course
KAANAPALI - The Rotary Club of Lahaina will hold a giant golf scramble fundraiser at the Kaanapali Kai Golf Course on Oct. 26 to raise funds for Maui youth and to push forward the fight to end polio.
The tournament will have an 8 a.m. shotgun start. Four-member teams will vie for prizes awarded for closest to the pin, low gross (men and women), low net (men and women) and overall top team.
The club is seeking tournament sponsors, hole sponsors for $150 each, and players who will pay $100 each. The golf fee includes a party and prize presentation at Paradise Grill after the tournament.
Proceeds will be used to provide scholarships to Maui County high school students and to fund Rotary International's decades-long campaign to eradicate polio from the planet.
Sponsor and golf reservations can be made by printing a form available on the club's website, www.rotarycluboflahaina.com, and mailing or e-mailing it in.

Hyundai renews title sponsorship of Tournament of Champions
KAPALUA - The PGA Tour and Hyundai Motor America last week announced a two-year extension of Hyundai's title sponsorship of the exclusive field Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii through the 2014-15 season.
The upcoming Hyundai Tournament of Champions will be held Jan. 3-6 at The Plantation Course in Kapalua and will mark the PGA Tour's resumption in January.
Dustin Johnson is the defending champion. All four competitive rounds will be broadcast on the Golf Channel.
"We are very pleased to have Hyundai continue as title sponsor of the Tournament of Champions, which has played a distinctive role on the PGA Tour for more than 60 years by inviting only tournament winners from the previous year," said PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem.
An important aspect of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions is the charitable giving associated with the event. Since 1999, the host organizations of the tournament have distributed more than $4.4 million to the Maui community.
