Every one has been different. And they’ve all been a little more special than the previous.
After spending years trying to break through, Dan Brown has now won three county amateurs over the last seven summers.
On Sunday at the 6,305-yard, par-71 Fairview Golf Course, Brown captured his third overall Lebanon County Amateur Golf Championship. And he did it by putting together two solid rounds.
The 51-year-old Brown fired a four-under par score of 67 over his second round. That, coupled with his opening-day 69, gave him a total of 136, or six-under par, which was one stroke lower than runner-up Cody Kersey.
Trailing first-round leader Mat Rowe by two shots entering the final day, Brown got off to a fast start, with four birdies over his first eight holes. But the shot that may have clinched the championship for Brown was a 35-foot birdie putt on the par-four 11th hole.
