Barnesville’s Wells posts an 87 at state golf tourney

UPPER ARLINGTON — Barnesville junior Carter Wells became the first golfer in Shamrock history to take part in the OHSAA State Golf Tournament Friday morning at Ohio State University’s challenging Scarlet Course.

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.

Wells is tied for 43rd place overall.

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.

The state tournament wraps up with another 18-hole round today. Wells will tee off just before noon because the starting times are being delayed an hour because of expected frost in Central Ohio.
