Lewis Metal Works Takes Jeff Nelson Memorial Crown

Lewis Metal Works has dominated the annual Jeff Nelson Memorial Golf Tournament presented by the South Boston Jaycees for several years, and it won another title Friday at Green’s Folly Golf Course, winning the tourney by two strokes over South Boston Insurance.

Lewis Metal Works has won two in a row, three out of the last five and four out of the last six Jeff Nelson Memorials, and consistency off the tee and on the green was again the key, according to James Lewis.

“The key to the win was Jay Burnett chipping in on No. 17 and Randy Cage chipping in on No. 7,” said Lewis.

“Drew’s (Lewis) long tee shots were a key also, and everyone putted well, so chemistry in general has been good for us.

“I’ve been very blessed to play with James, Drew and Jay and it’s good to win, but it’s more important to think what the tournament is for,” said Cage.
“Jeff was a good friend of us all.”
