DJ: Cincinnati golf champ Jim Volpenhein stands alone in the spotlight

He'll be inducted as a 'Legend of Cincinnati Golf'

CINCINNATI - On several levels, there is no overstatement regarding the Legends of Cincinnati Golf induction scheduled for Monday at Camargo Country Club.
  
  One of the top 100 golf courses in the country, the Seth Raynor-designed jewel, which opened in 1925, hosts a gem of an inductee in Jim Volpenhein.
  
  The other “Jimmy V,” as many of his friends call him, is a seven-time Cincinnati city golf champion. And a bon vivant of the first order. For years, I’ve compared him to the late Tony Lema. Both loved golf and living in equal portions.
