It was a sunny, but breezy day when Chris Pirritano played in the Cumberland Valley Wrestling Golf Fundraiser. Chris, now 35, has been playing golf since he was 9 when his parents got him involved in the sport.
He had played in this tournament the previous year, which raises money for the Cumberland Valley Wrestling team in Mecanicsburg, PA, but had never gotten a hole in one before. “I actually thought I was going to go my whole life without ever getting one.” He also said his shot tended to be worse when there was a car on the line, which made this victory that much sweeter.
Chris described Hole 6 at the Carlisle Barracks Golf Course as not “terribly difficult” and “fairly straightforward.” The weather, although relatively nice, provided a bit of a challenge. Chris said, “It was actually quite windy. There was a stiff breeze in my face, and I had to take more club than normal.” He laughed and said maybe that’s why he made the shot.
Chris loves his new Ford Fusion from L.B. Smith Ford Lincoln. He works in real estate so he spends a lot of time on the road and enjoys driving the car when showing properties. He won a two-year lease and is so impressed with the Fusion that he might end up buying it when the lease ends. Chris said the dealership is phenomenal and the employees are great people. They’re even working on marketing efforts to promote each others business around town. It sounds like the experience has had some great benefits beyond a new car!
The team here at J. Ryder Group / Ford Hole in One Program loves hearing about our customers sponsoring charitable events, and we’re even more excited when they have winners! Congratulations to Chris and a big thank you to the good folks at L.B. Smith Ford Lincoln!
