When Ben Feeman puts his mind to something, he’s the kind of kid who wants to excel, not just compete. He’s only been playing golf for two years, but he’s already pretty good at it.
On Tuesday at Fairview Golf Course, Feeman claimed the individual title at the Lebanon County scholastic golf tournament. Feeman defeated Annville-Cleona’s Simon Domencic in a one-hole, sudden-death playoff for the title.
After the Cedar Crest junior and Domencic had completed their rounds with matching 76s, Feeman carded a par on Fairview’s par-four Number One hole.
Feeman had forced the playoff with a clutch eagle at the par-five 17th hole. Earlier, he had rolled in a birdie putt at Fairview’s par-five fourth hole.
Not only was the Lebanon County title the most significant championship of Feeman’s young career, it provided him with a certain degree of momentum heading into Saturday’s District Three golf championships in York.
