Congratulations to Carson Barry for his fine play in two recent Future Champions Golf Junior Golf Tour (FCGJT) events. Two weeks ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, Carson shot a 2 under par 70 on the first day and was playing in the last group for the final round with three other top ranked juniors. Carson struggled resulting in a final round 76 and tied for 5th place. It was a great learning experience, and Carson learned a great deal about himself and his game.
Carson took that learning experience into another FCGJT event last weekend in Oregon. Carson played solid golf on the first day with a round of 74 on the very difficult and demanding Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. That put Carson into the final group paring again with a very competitive field of the top junior golfers in the Western US. Carson took his learning experience from the week before and came out on top shooting a final round 76 under very tough conditions to win by 3 shots.
Carson contributes his fine play and the win to staying patient, managing his game, and controlling his emotions. Well done Carson!! I am very proud of you for all the hard work you do. Now I want you to do, as Gary Player once told me, “Double it.”
