Bill Taylor for the dedication Friday of a new sign celebrating Luke’s second win in an international tournament. In 2016, the town and Taylor joined in putting up a sign touting Luke’s victory in the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship.

In April, Luke will compete in the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship at Augusta National.
