LOMISON COMES FROM FOUR BACK TO WIN 8TH JIMMY ANDERSON BOYS’ INVITATIONAL

JACKSONVILLE, NC (April 3, 2016)—On Saturday, Seth Lomison of Pfafftown, NC tweeted how thankful he was for being able to play in four Jimmy Anderson Boys’ Invitationals.  After winning this year’s event, he must like the tournament even more.  “I’ve played in this tournament for four years and it is one of my favorites” stated Lomison.  “I just really like the golf course and the people here at the club are so supportive of the tournament.  It is great to come to a place like this and even better to win” added Lomison.

Lomison, a high school senior, shot a second round of two under par 70 to finish at 142 and takes home the Jimmy Anderson Boys’ title, winning by one shot.  Patrick Golden of Murrells Inlet, SC, George Eubank, Jr. of Spartanburg, SC and Zack Swanson of Waxhaw, NC all finished tied for second at one under 143.  Attie Giles of Pinehurst, NC won the boys’ 13-15 age division and tied for fifth overall with first round leader Eric Bae of Pinehurst, NC and Nicholas Lyerly of Salisbury, NC at even par 144.

This annual junior tournament was started by the alumni of the Jacksonville Country Club junior golf program in 2009 to honor their longtime teacher and friend Mr. Jimmy Anderson.  Jimmy Anderson was the head golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club for over 25 years.  Each Saturday morning, he conducted a junior golf clinic to help spread the game of golf to the next generation.  During his tenure at Jacksonville CC, he taught many juniors including Mallory Miller, the 1987 N.C. Junior Champion and numerous future collegiate and golf professionals.  Not only did he teach the game of golf, but was always there with a helpful word of encouragement to any young golfer.  The tournament began as a boys and girls tournament, but due to the success of the event, the girls have been given their own tournament that is conducted each fall in October.

The Jimmy Anderson Junior Invitational is conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association.
