DANIELS — Tim Epling comes up just short on a putt from the fringe on No. 3 of the Cobb Course at The Resort at Glade Springs Monday during the WVU Golf Tour. Epling is the manager of the West Virginia Miners, who won the 2012 Prospect League championship Aug. 11. The tour was held to raise funds for WVU’s impending addition of a men’s golf team. Among those attending were athletic director Oliver Luck and former Mountaineer athletes.
