GolfPlaying for the first time in the...


Playing for the first time in the Bubby Worsham Memorial Tournament, a 54-hole, medal-play event for players between the ages of 17 and 22, Crofton's Gary Carpenter put together rounds of 73-72-74 for a 54-hole total of 219 and a third-place finish.


Bethesda's Travor Randolph, of Rice University, set the early pace with an opening round of 68 and maintained his lead to the end.

Randolph closed with a 72-74 and a 54-hole total of 214 for his first Worsham title.


Carpenter made a final-round run at the leader with three birdies early on the back side to close to within one stroke. An errant tee shot on No. 13 led to a triple-bogey, and although he came back to birdie again at No. 15, the 18-year-old Arundel graduate ran out of scoring opportunities.

This was the second straight solid showing by Carpenter, who will attend East Carolina University this fall on a golf scholarship.

At last week's Maryland Open, conducted at his home course of Crofton Country Club, Carpenter made both cuts and finished 32nd overall and was the 10th amateur in a field of 86 professionals and 70 amateurs. He posted rounds of 77-76-74 for a 227.
