VIENNA, WV. (WTAP) It's the Mid-Ohio Valley's first and most successful charity golf tournament. The 47th annual Sour Mash open was held this afternoon at the Parkersburg country club.
The event presented by the Parkersburg and Wood county rotary clubs has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years for local charities.
And once again LPGA tour pro Brittany Lincicome was on hand as the guest professional.
Lincicome is currently ranked as the 34th best player in the world, which makes her ranked as the ninth best American. Lincicome has a career earnings of over 8 million dollars and has played in a total of 314 events with a total of eight LGPA wins including two majors.
And in just 10 days, Lincicome will become just the 5th women golfer ever to participate in a PGA tour event. She will be competing in the Barbasol Championship just outside of Lexington, Kentucky.
The Sour Mash gives Brittany a chance for an annual summer home coming, while she was born in Florida, her parents and extended family are from here in the Mid-Ohio valley.
So every summer she looks forward to returning so she can reconnect with her extended family and help a good cause at the same time.

Brittany teamed up with country club head pro Scott Davidson for a 6 under par round of 67 in a best ball format.
Today's featured foursome was Zac Campbell, Mark Welch, Dustin Flinn, and Chris Way and the featured foursome for next year's sour mash was the winning team of Joe Bell, Sandy Bell, David Roach, and Mike Topping.
