Brandon Sheaffer shot a 92 in the inaugural Junior Masters Tour tournament at Beaver Creek Country Club on June 17.
A likely choice to win the Masters championship based on that performance? Slim, at that time.
However, Sheaffer's game has come full cycle over six weeks, evidenced by his 5-over-par 77 on Thursday to become the first champion to have his name engraved on the Masters plaque, which will hang on the walls in the Beaver Creek pro shop.
Sheaffer, who will be a senior at Smithsburg High, was the only golfer to claim any birdies, and that was the difference in his two-shot win over Kim Eaton's 79.
Sheaffer had back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4 and 5 on the way to a 37 on the front side, then birdied 15 as part of a 40 on the back side.
