MOSCOW — After the first round of play in the 2015 Anthracite Golf Association Junior Tournament of Champions, former Pittston Area star Tyler McGarry was right where he wanted to be.
McGarry, a soon-to-be freshman at Misericordia University, fired a 73 at Emanon Country Club on Tuesday, Aug. 3. Two days later, however, he let the title slip away while shooting an 81 at Elmhurst Country Club. McGarry finished tied for second, just one stroke off the winner, Jonathan Wilson.
Wilson fired a 75-78 to win the tournament.
In the girls championship, Wyoming Area’s Madeline Wharton, of Harding, shot 87-84 and finished in third place alone. Pittston Area’s Alexandra Craig shot an 84-93 to finish fifth.
