    based on your previous posts, this should be 45

    In a 2012 story, Wayne said he started the tournament in 1971, so I think this makes 44. If you see him at the tourney, ask him or his sons, and then I can correct if I’ve got it wrong.

    Kamm, you’re right. Recounting I’ve got this as the 45th year. Thanks for the catch.
