Ben Feeman may have bigger fish to fry. But that doesn’t mean a little home cooking can’t provide him with a little sustenance for what’s ahead.
With the District Three tournament, and quite possibly a berth in the PIAA event looming, Feeman captured the boys’ individual title at the Lebanon County Scholastic Golf Championships, contested on Tuesday at Pine Meadows. The Cedar Crest junior fired an even-par round of 72 to edge Palmyra’s Sean Kelly by two strokes.
For Feeman, it was his second straight Lebanon County Scholastic Golf crown. Last year as a sophomore, Feeman nudged Annville-Cleona’s Simon Domencic in a playoff at Fairview for the crown.
This time around, Feeman performed a little bit better at Pine Meadows, using an eagle on the final hole of his round – the par-five sixth hole – to squeak past Kelly. Feeman counted 40 total strokes over his first nine holes, but was a combined four-under par over his final six holes.
Feeman entered the event coming off a strong showing at the Lancaster-Lebanon League Golf Championships. But still remaining on his postseason schedule is a date at the District Three Championships in York, where a spot in the state tournament will be at stake.
