Golf is no longer top of mind for James Lepp, but some special memories came flooding back this week when he learned that the PGA TOUR’s BMW Championship was being contested on the course where he won the NCAA Championship back in 2005.
That win at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., was the biggest in a brilliant, but short golf career for the Abbotsford native. It came against a field stacked with many future PGA TOUR stars, including the likes of Dustin Johnson, Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner and Alex Noren.
Lepp beat them all after closing that tournament with a seven-under 63 and beating Michael Putnam in a playoff.
