Leaders survive the pressure at Kiwanis tourney

1 days 20 hours ago | | | Email

LUMBERTON — Larry Cloninger and John Haskins never lost the lead during the second round of the Kiwanis All-American Golf Tournament but it came close.Even as the two got into the tee box on No. 18, the duo of Stephen Pippin and Chip Collins was only a stroke behind and playing in the same group.“Larry said let’s hit two good tee shots and put the ball in play,” Haskins said.It was a simple strategy that was executed near perfectly as they both kept the ball towards the middle of the fairway and set up for their final approaches. They parred the hole, Pippin and Collins bogeyed, and a two-day total of 16-under-par 128 gave the brothers-in-law their second Kiwanis championship.
