He’s long off the tee. He’s extremely accurate with his irons. And he possesses a deft touch around the greens.
He’s even keeled. He’s supportive. And he’s the kind of guy you can bounce ideas off of.
Cody Kersey is the perfect playing partner.
On Saturday at the Lebanon Country Club, Kersey and partner Jim Gardner stormed into the semifinals of the championship flight at the 77th annual W.B. Sullivan Better-Ball-of-Partners golf tournament. Kersey and Gardner edged Dane Fahnestock-Josh Majzlik 2&1 in the quarterfinals to become the only all-local duo to reach the semis.
In that round, Kersey served as his team’s closer.
The match was all square before Kersey took matters into his own hands at LCC’s par-five 15th hole. Kersey converted a short birdie putt there, then stuck his approach shot close at the par-four 16th hole.
His birdie at Number 16 put Kersey and Gardner two-up with two holes to play, and they closed out the match at the par-four 17th.
