Memorial golf classic honors veteran in Briarcliff Manor
The first Joseph Lemm Memorial Golf Classic was held at Trump National in Briarcliff Manor.
Over 100 golfers braved high temperatures to honor the late veteran from West Harrison. Lemm died in Afghanistan in 2015.
Former Knicks star John Starks and former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason were among the guests.
“No matter how many putts you miss or how many drives you may hit, there's nothing like missing a family member especially a hero like Joe,” said Esiason. “He just wanted the world to be a better place for all of us. He wanted to keep us safe and there are many men and women who wear the uniform that do that and it's one of the reasons you come out for things like this.”
