84 Lumber bids adieu to PGA Tour golf - Boston.com (754 words)
Daly is so close to 84 Lumber founder Joe Hardy that he calls him "Dad," and he isn't the only golfer with ties to Hardy, who built the 7,511-yard Mystic Rock course about 10 years ago with the idea of someday playing host to a PGA Tour event.
And when 84 Lumber began questioning whether it was worth an estimated $100 million to run a summertime tournament for the next six years, the PGA Tour awarded 84 Lumber's 2007 dates to Hartford without giving any warning beforehand.
84 Lumber's surprise exit from PGA golf coincided with the privately held company's decision last spring to close 67 stores in 12 states as part of a retrenching in which the company expects to open 125 new stores in fast-growth areas.
Joseph Hardy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (593 words)
In addition to the 84 Lumber Company, Hardy founded and remains active in operating the Hardy family-owned Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, one of North America’s premier tourist destinations.
In addition to his involvement in 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Hardy also serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Fayette County where he lives and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is located.
Hardy has employed the same leadership, vision and drive that created 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort to lead a multi-million dollar renovation of Uniontown, the largest city in the county, donating millions of dollars to support street and building improvements and construction of green spaces.
