THE FRENCH FRYER with Steve French

ANOTHER AKRON ICON
French Fryer

    Hey, Lebron's from Akron.  I think you already knew that.  But now another Akronite gets to come home.  Harold Varner III is a fascinating story.  He's a golfer, he's black, and he's good.  Varner was born here, but moved to North Carolina for his teen years, so he could play golf year-round.  Varner is only about 5-foot-6, but hits the ball a mile.  He was an All-American at East Carolina, and qualified for the PGA Tour last year.  He finished 75th in the FedEx Cup, with four top ten finishes.  And now quietly he's won the Australian PGA Championship.  At age 26, it's his first win as a big-time pro.  And it qualifies him for the Bridgestone Invitational, back home at Firestone, Aug. 3-6.  Good stuff, Harold.  Hopefully someone around here will finally notice.
