Carson Barry Concludes First Day At NCAA Championship
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Oregon State senior Carson Barry completed the first day of action at the 2022 NCAA Championships on Friday. He shot a 5-over 75 at the par-70, 7,289-yard Grayhawk Golf Club.
Barry enters the second day of action tied for 82nd and will tee off at 1:42 p.m. PT.
Barry, an Eagle, Idaho, native, picked up one birdie on the day, at the par-4 14th hole (430 yards). He was 1-over par on par-3 holes, but also 3-over on par 4s.
"The way this course is set up, if you are off by just a couple of yards in any direction from your target you pay the price, and it's showing in the scores for the entire field," Oregon State head coach Jon Reehoorn said. "Carson hit a couple of shots that barely missed his target to start the round, which left him in spots not able to save par.
"Tomorrow afternoon is going to be very difficult. The course is already very firm. Twenty-four hours from now, it will be even firmer and the wind is supposed to kick up. The key for Carson will be to stay patient and understand a shot that ends up 20-to-30 feet from the hole is really good."
Barry is one of six individuals at this year's NCAA Championship. He is vying to be one of the top nine golfers not on an advancing team after the first three days of the event.
