Wannamoisett’s Dumas Takes Medalist Honors in Boys Jr. Amateur Championship
Wannamoisett’s Spencer Dumas fired an even par 72 to take home medalist honors in the Rhode Island Boy’s Junior Amateur Championship qualifying round on Monday at Alpine Country Club.
Dumas edged fellow Wannamoisett member Mark Wilson and Pawtucket Country Club’s Gary Taraian by one shot.
The match play portion of the tournament begins on Tuesday.
The final match will take place on Thursday afternoon.
After opening the day with three straight pars, Dumas birdied the fourth hole, double bogeyed the fifth hole and then birdied the sixth hole to get back to even par on the front nine.
Dumas then made six straight pars to keep him at even, until a bogey on 13 brought him back to one over par for the tournament.
Another four straight pars kept Dumas at even par, before he knocked in a birdie on the 18th hole to finish at even par for the round.
