It was a dominating performance by Carson Barry during the three-day Idaho State Amateur Championship at Banbury Golf Course. Barry is a Meridian, Idaho native and is an incoming sophomore at Oregon State where he plays on their golf team.
He came into this championship feeling calm and confident since he was playing his home course. “It feels amazing to not only win the State Amateur, but to win this on my home course.” His final round finished at 67 (-3). “It was a great day on the course I was playing well, and always enjoy playing with Hunter.”
Leading the tournament wire to wire, Barry finished with an impressive three-day total of 197 (-13).
Hunter Ostrom finished runner-up with a score of 69 (-1) and an overall score of 202 (-8). Ostrom had five birdies in his final round, but his three bogeys gave Barry the room he needed to keep his lead.
Ostrom left it all out on the course at the end driving the green on 17, and hitting a drive on 18 that had eyes for the green going over 400 yards leaving him only 60 yards out from the green.
Nick Roberts caught his stride in his final round and took third place with a score of 68 (-2) and a three-day score of 205 (-5).
Carson Barry will have his name added to the champions list on the newly named State Amateur trophy, The Scott Masingill Cup.
