20th Annual Carter Cup in Memory of Michael Carter '00
Meghan Podimsky

The 20th annual Carter Cup—the Metropolitan Golf Association's Junior Stroke Play Championship—was held at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ on Tuesday, August 2. The invitational event is named in memory of Michael P. Carter '00, an accomplished junior player and standout member of the Green Wave golf team who died in a car accident in 2002. Michael was a junior club champion at both Baltusrol and Winged Foot Golf Club, as well as a promising player on the Penn State golf team.

The Carter Cup features 46 top junior golfers from the metropolitan area typically playing 36 holes in the summer heat on Canoe Brook's two championship courses—a rigorous test of mental and physical endurance. This year, Delbarton was represented by Green Wave golfer Tyler Lee '23. Lee is pictured below with Mary Lou Carter P'00.

Cameron Besaw from New Canaan, Connecticut took home the trophy at this year's Carter Cup. Besaw's score broke respective records in Carter Cup history as he was able to claim a 10-shot victory setting yet another Carter Cup record.

We honor the memory of former Green Wave golfer Michael Carter '00 who gave the sport of golf everything he had while he was among us.
