Congratulations to Paul Weyland Golf Junior Academy Strive for Excellence student Carson Barry for his recent win and fine play in Future Champions Golf Junior tour events


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.”
