Partly through golf, Jeff True leads an active senior lifestyle. He’s played in numerous senior tournaments across the United States.
But it took True coming closer to home to score one of his biggest triumphs.
On Friday at the par-71 Royal Oaks Golf Course, True mastered the art of the par to win the 31st edition of the Lebanon County Senior Amateur Championship. He recorded more pars than anyone else in the field – 15 – and registered a birdie and two bogeys to count a one-over par score of 72, which was a shot lower than runner-up Jeff Hoke.
For True, 71 and a graduate of Lebanon High School, it was his first County Senior Amateur title in a handful of tries.
True got his round to one-under par when he chipped in from 25-feet at the par-three fifth hole. His two hiccups came at the par-five ninth hole and the par-four 14th hole.
