Maclain Huge Clears Emmet Schooblboy Field by 6 For the Win

June 24, 2012 by  

The 78th Frank Emmet Schoolboy was played at Worthington Manor Golf Club this year. The course plays to par 72.  The Emmet is the first of six well-established, well-run junior tournaments conducted by the Washington Metropolitan Golf Association (WMGA).The field began with 89 competitors, 6 withdrawals brought the field to 83.  This is a 3-day tournament with cuts after 18 and 36 holes.  Twenty-four made the 1st day cut with a 78 or better. 

Maclain Huge (pronounced: Hugh – ghee) a graduated senior from Middleburg Academy fired a 71 that day leaving himself two back from the first-day leader Cas Dickerson (McDonough – 2012).  In round two, Huge made a “huge” move shooting a 66 for a two-day 137.  That round included eight birdies and an eagle.  This put him seven strokes ahead of the next competitors, Tyler Herriott (Calverton – 2013) and Jon Carr (Georgetown Prep – 2014), both at 144.  Dickerson trailed off a little with a 76 (145). Round two cut the field down to 12, with 151 or better getting you to the 3rd and final round.

In the final round, Huge was going to force the pack to come to him for the win and he moved through the course relatively mistake-free landing at 1-over for the day and a 210 ( 6 under) over the three days.  Nathan Tenpas (Bethesda-Chevy Chase – 2014) finished in 2nd, six strokes back with Carr shooting a final day 76 (220) for 3rd place.

Next up for the WMGA is the 53rd Bobby Gorin Memorial held July 16 – 19 at Woodmont Country Club.  A course where Huge recently fell just 3 strokes short of qualifying for the U.S. Open.  For a listing of Championships and Tournaments in the DC Metro area, use the following link to take you to a previous DC Metro Junior Golf posting – Championships and Tournaments.
