McCarthy Advances to 2nd Round of Match Play at Polo Golf Jr. Classic

November 25, 2009 by  

Denny McCarthy of Burtonsville, MD (30th seed) won his first round match, 2 and 1, against 3rd seed Niclas Carlsson of Enebyburg, Sweden.  Play was suspended for over 2 hours this morning before resuming.

Carlsson jumped out front early and built a 3-up lead through five holes.  The two started out on #10 of the Champions Course.  At the sixth hole (#15, par-3 179 yds), McCarthy birdied to take the hole.  It is here where he started his comeback.  Number 16, the seventh hole of the match, is listed as the most challenging hole on the course.  It is a par-4 at 434 yards.  McCarthy took a three to win the hole.  He also took the ninth hole (#18 par-5, 556 yds) of the match with a birdie to go all-square.   He then went on to win the tenth hole of the match to go 1-up.  The matched stayed that way through the 15th hole.  At the 16th hole (#7 par-3, 226yds) is where McCarthy made par but Carlsson bogied.  McCarthy was now Dormie 2.  They went even on the next hole and McCarthy found his way into the second round.   McCarthy is a cool customer and never let Carlsson’s front-nine lead blur his path to the second round.    

Ji Soo Park of Centreville, VA (26th seed) was not as fortunate today.  In his first round match against 7th seed Oliver Schniederjans of Powder Springs, GA he never got it going.  He went one down on the first hole of play and never made up ground.  He lost his match 4 and 3. 

In second round play, McCarthy is matched against Clancy Waugh of North Palm Beach, FL.  Waugh is the 14th seed and defeated 19th seed Oscar Lengden of Rydeback, Sweden in 19 holes to get through to the next round.  Second round play was suspended at 5PM due to rainfall and impending darkness.   At the moment, McCarthy leads the match 2-up after five holes.  Play will resume tomorrow morning.
