Dateline – Richmond, VA
Guess who won first place for gross score at the 1-day Jefferson Lakeside CC member-guest last Friday?
That’s right – Lemmon and his guest shot an even par 71 around the difficult 6,100 yard JLCC track.
The team was 3-over though 5, but birdies on 14, 16 and 17 leapfrogged them into a thrilling 1st place finish by one stroke over two other teams.
“We didn’t see the cart girl until the 6th hole. My partner insisted that we go for the 6-pack special instead of the single beer approach,” Lemmon said. “That was a key strategic move that ultimately won us the tournament. It was all decided on the 6th hole.”
$30 each in pro shop merchandise was enjoyed by both Lemmon and his guest.
