Lewis mounts a run at Champions Tour major

By Kevin Robbins | Saturday, August 21, 2010, 08:09 PM

Austin resident and rookie Champions Tour player J.L. Lewis, a former golf professional at The Hills of Lakeway and Forest Creek, finished 54 holes of the Jeld-Wen Tradition at 9 under par Saturday, leaving him two shots behind leader Tom Lehman. Lewis shot a third-round 6-under-par 66 at the Crosswater Club in Sunriver, Ore., to share second place with Champions Tour major winners Bernhard Langer and Fred Funk.

That’s awfully good company for a two-time PGA Tour winner and Texas State graduate whose elbow and knee injuries all but ruined his career from 2006 on. He’s had four starts this year on the PGA Tour, four on the Nationwide Tour and three on the Champions Tour, where he had his best finish of 2010, a tie for 12th at the U.S. Senior Open.

He’ll be playing in the final group Sunday with Langer and Lehman.
