Day One – State Amateur
The State Amateur is a championship for the state’s best players. 120 players signed up to compete for the title of State Champion.
Carson Barry from Meridian, ID leads the pack shooting under par with a score of 65 (-5). Barry left it all out on the course with five birdies today. Barry played in the PNGA Men’s Amateur last week making it to the semi-finals.
Hunter Ostrom from Eagle, ID is hot on Carson’s heels and is one stroke behind him. Ostrom had an early bogey, but was able to bounce back two holes later and get an eagle. He ended his day under par shooting a 66 (-4). Ostrom has been on fire this season winning the Eastern Amateur in Virginia last week and the Arizona South Western Amateur in June.
After yesterday’s practice round the Idaho Golf Association (IGA) held their second 50th Anniversary Celebration at BanBury Golf Course where the State Amateur trophy was named and dedicated to the nine time champion, Scott Masingill. The trophy’s official title is the Scott Masingill Cup.
While day one is in the books there is a lot of golf to be played, and Carson Barry will need to continue to play defensively if he wants to claim the Scott Masingill Cup.
