Oak Harbor High School graduate Eric McCardle placed 140th out of 311 golfers at the United States Golf Association amateur championship tournament Aug. 13 to 19 at Cherry Hills Country Club outside of Denver.
After a strong first round of an even-par 71, which put him in 51st, McCardle shot a seven-over 77 the second day for a 148 total. The two-day cut was 143 and included the top 51 golfers.
McCardle’s first round included four birdies, 11 pars and only two bogeys and one double bogey. Day two, however, he was hurt by seven bogeys.
