Local golf: Barr made quite a run

WINSTON-SALEM —Salisbury’s Charlie Barr, a rising senior at Cannon School, nearly won the North Carolina Junior Boys Championship, as the No. 54 seed.

Barr had to survive a playoff following stroke play just to get into the match play field of 64, but then he won four straight matches and came close to grabbing the title. Barr fell to Durham’s Clayson Good on the 20th hole of the championship match at Maple Chase Golf and Country Club.

Barr’s run in the event forced him to withdraw from the Rowan Masters at Warrior. Barr led qualifying for the Rowan Masters with a 71 and was the No. 2 seed.

Barr won 5 and 4 in his semifinal match against Raleigh’s Davis Adams on Friday morning.  He took the lead on the fifth hole, and then made an eagle on No. 6.

He made the turn up by three holes and finished off the match with a par on the 14th.

In the championship match, Barr held a one-hole lead over Good at the turn. Barr bogeyed the 17th, but he took a one-hole lead going to the 18th. Good made a birdie on No. 18 to send the match to extra holes.

Both players birdied the first playoff hole. Good won with a par on the second extra hole.

Good missed the cut for match play last year, making two triple bogeys, but he redeemed himself.
