Anthony Armstrong was having a good time on the golf course Monday afternoon.
With the opportunity to help contribute to a great cause, the third-year Redskins receiver also found himself in the middle of a lively group at Monday’s seventh annual Leukemia Golf Classic at the Trump National Golf Club.
Armstrong also shared his strategy when approaching any shot — and it’s apparently not as difficult as it’s made out to be.
“Usually when I hit the ball, I try to make sure I just hit it to where I can find it,” said Armstrong, who typically polishes his golf game early in the season.
Armstrong certainly looked the part. He was decked out in a baseball cap with white sunglasses sitting on the bill, a bright gold polo shirt, dark grey slacks and shiny new golf spikes.
He set some lofty goals for himself before his first hole of the day.
“I’m going to be playing like the old Tiger (Woods),” Armstrong said with a laugh.
Though the mood was light at Monday’s event, the players, coaches and team officials participating in the outing were well aware of the seriousness of its cause.
The Leukemia Golf Classic – started in 2006 by then-Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell – serves as a fundraiser for the National Capital Area Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and has raised closed to $885,000 since its inception.
The event has been hosted for the past two years by Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo.
