Abbotsford golfer James Lepp has moved safely through to the finals of Big Break Greenbrier.
The penultimate episode of the Golf Channel reality show aired Tuesday evening, and Lepp won a five-hole elimination challenge. He finished at two under par, ahead of Savannah, Ga. native Mark Silvers (-1) and Isaac Sanchez (even par) of Folson, Calif.
Lepp and Silvers will meet in the finale, which airs next Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. Pacific time, while Sanchez was eliminated.
Lepp, 29, was one of 12 golfers cast for the show, which was taped in June and sees players compete in a variety of elimination challenges each episode. First prize includes an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2013 Greenbrier Classic, and $50,000 cash.
Lepp, who won the 2005 NCAA Div. 1 individual title with the Washington Huskies, put his pro playing career on the back burner in 2008 and started Kikkor Golf, a shoe and apparel company.
