Fisher Grabs the Lead  (5 years ago)
The 46th-annual Central Virginia Invitational began a three-day run Friday, the opening round at Winton Country Club in Amherst County
The two-time defending champ Lee Fisher used a run of four straight birdies and a hot putter en route to an opening 5-under 66.  Fisher leads Rustburg golfer Clayton Forren by two entering round two, Forren shot 3-under 68.  Maxey Wilkerson is three back at 69.
Lee Fisher, the first-day leader after firing an opening round 5-under 66, said "I was very pleased with that round.  I had maybe one bad tee shot out there on seven, ended up making bogey.  But I came back with four straight birdies, happy with that.  I finished out the back side with another 33 as I did on the front, 2-under on the front, 3-under on the back, but pretty happy with 66 going into tomorrow."

Fisher Defends Title  (5 years ago)

The final round of the CVIGT came down to the final holes but defending champion Lee Fisher held off Hunter Russell and Adam Sperry to claim the title.

Heading to 17 at London Downs, Fisher had a one shot lead over Adam Sperry but Sperry put his 2nd shot in the water on 17 and ended up with a bogey.

Hunter Russell, two shots back, had a chance to put some pressure on Fisher by making a birdie putt but had to settle for par.

On 18, all three reached the green in two. Sperry made a long birdie putt. Then Russell did the same from a slightly shorter distance. That got both within one so Fisher had to make a par putt to win it. He did to finish at 6-under for the tournament. "I just knew I had to play steady golf today and I hit the ball pretty good today I just did not make any putts," Fisher said.

 

The 2010 trophy has been in Fisher's office and he didn't want it to leave. "It's not going anywhere. It's going right back where it was and I'm pretty proud of that and winning another one for my dad on Father's Day is pretty special too."

 

Fisher says he'll go for three in a row next year. Brian Stanley was 4th and Steven Dudley finished tied for 5th with Jim Heidel and Bert Allen.

Frankie Smith, Senior won the seniors title.
