Childress fires 70, finishes ninth at North & South Junior Championship

Staff report

PINEHURST — Michael Childress, of Salisbury, had another good day on Wednesday during the third and final round of the North & South Amateur Junior Championship.

Childress finished in a tie for ninth (out of 90 outstanding players) in the tournament, following a 2-under par 70 yesterday, playing at Pinehurst No. 8.

Childress had three birdies and just one bogey during the final round. He birdied two par 3s — No. 8 and No. 15 — and the 381-yard, par-4 16th.

Childress’ three-day total was 218 (77-71-70), 11 shots behind the event winner — Lino Galdin, who carded a 207 (68-71-68).

Galdin is originally from Nesmy, France, but attended the Heritage Academy in Hilton Head, S.C. He has signed to play at Mercer University in Georgia.

A rising senior at Cannon School in Concord and a signee with the University of Richmond, Childress returns to action on Monday at a United States Amateur qualifier in Monroe — 36 holes in one day.

Lansdon Robbins, Childress’ teammate at Cannon, had a three-round total of 221, finishing 16th at Pinehurst on Wednesday.
