(( Despite teeing off for only the second time this year at Hanging Rock; Chip Sullivan felt right at home. ((CHIP:)) ((NAT SOUND))
Visiting with old friends and including Roanoke's future golfers in his round turned out to be a perfect combination. ((CHIP)) ((NAT SOUND)) Chips earnings might not be Tiger like but his driving game is definitely in the Woods area. Sullivan is currently among the PGA's top 10 in driving distance. His 320 yard blasts on the par five's and four's at Hanging Rock is common for chip; but now he's dangerously more accurate and more consistent; making him a contender for the 25 thousand dollar long drive championship at season's end. ((:))
Sullivan's handled the mental pressure of competing in 20 tour events well. he's made the cut 7 times for about 25 thousand dollars in winnings. Chips' always hard on himself and was not satisfied with his two under par 70 in the mid At;antic Pro Am.)) ((STEVE MASON:))
