Barnesville's Carter Wells tees off with solid showing at OHSAA state golf tournament
UPPER ARLINGTON — Barnesville junior Carter Wells became the first golfer in Shamrock history to take part in the recent OHSAA State Golf Tournament at Ohio State University’s challenging Scarlet Course.
Wells finished his state tournament appearance with a score of 166 with rounds of 87 and 79 to collect a 29th place showing with 166.
On day one of the state golf tournament, Wells was able to rebound from a rough start in the opening nine holes to post a 40 on his second nine and an 87 for the round.
Something to build on entering the final round is the fact that Wells played his final six holes at even par. He had one birdie in the round, which came on the par five, 6th.
Seemingly the first-time jitters and the course difficulty were a factor. He began his round on the 10th hole and made a par. However, he proceeded to play the next 8 holes in 12 over.
