Elon Takes Golf Victory as Host; Former NBA Star J.R. Smith Makes His Golfing Debut
Earlier this year we told you that 16-year NBA veteran J.R. Smith is now a freshman college golfer, playing for North Carolina A & T. Smith made his collegiate golfing debut earlier this week in Burlington, playing in the Elon Invitational at the Alamance Country Club. Smith did not have the result he had hoped for, finishing behind 80 other golfers in the three-round tournament. Elon claimed the team title at the event, shooting a 31-under 821. Elon’s Pedro Rabadan, North Carolina’s Dougie Ergood and Appalachian State’s Jake Lane each shot 10-under 203 to finish as tri-champions.
