Logan Medcalf, despite his young 8 years of age, got the opportunity of a lifetime to compete at the Augusta National Golf Club this past week before the Masters commenced.
And if anything, he proved that his game travels as well as he does.
Medcalf placed second in the boys' 7-9 age group at the PGA Drive, Putt and Chip competition held Sunday, April 6, at the August National Golf Club.
He finished with a score 25, two points behind the winner, Treed Huang Katy of Texas.
"The greens were fast," said Medcalf in a phone interview, adding that it was an exciting experience all around.
Medcalf, who golfs out of the Bellingham Golf and Country Club, won the chipping portion of the even outright, but missed some late putts that would have given him the win.
"We are so proud of him," his mother, Nicole Medcalf, said in a phone interview. "He got a pretty large trophy. It's maybe 10 inches."
Nicole said Logan got quite the reception upon arriving back at their home course. Although shy, Logan received endless amounts of congratulations for his accomplishments on a national stage such as the Drive, Putt and Chip competition.
