Colin Spencer Tees It Up

Colin Spencer just missed the cut at the Massachusetts Junior Amatuer this week after two rounds of 76.

Mashpee High School rising sophomore Colin Spencer made a nice run at the 101st Massachusetts Junior Amateur Championship this week, but narrowly missed out on earning his way into the match play portion of the tournament.

Colin played consistent golf over two days of stroke play competition, firing rounds of 76 on both Monday, August 19, and Tuesday, August 20. Unfortunately his total of 152 was two above the cut line as the Top 16 finishers moved on with scores of 150 and better.

Match play was set to begin the next day with Dedham Country Club’s John Broderick heading into it with the lowest score. He finished with a two-under par two-day total of 142 after firing a 69 on Tuesday to move to the top of the leaderboard.

Three players missed the cut with scores of 151. Colin Spencer and five others were eight over.

Jack Spencer, a rising 8th grader, was in the mix after the first day. The younger of the Spencer brothers shot a very strong 74 on the first day of the tournament to put himself right into the thick of contention. He struggled in the second round to a 93. His two-day total of 167 was 23 shots over par.

The two brothers will be among the top players for the Mashpee High boys’ golf team, which begins practice for the fall season next week. The Falcons should contend for the South Shore League championship once again.
