The "Mighty Munchkin" has returned to the championship throne of the WACO golf tournament. A winner of the WACO in 2002 and a contender year in, year out, Kenny Smith emerged from a knotted pack of players who looked as if they would send the 24th edition of the tournament to a playoff Sunday. With five players - Smith, Kevin Farrell, Kevin Reiber, Clayton Rotz and Denny Stoner - locked in a scoreboard battle at 2-under par at one point on the back nine, Smith, the 5-foot-7 long-hitting dynamo from Waynesboro, Pa., electrified onlookers with an approach shot to the 18th hole that had the pin all covered.

koelble@herald-mail.com Two young golfers with different games shared first place in the WACO junior championship at Beaver Creek Country Club on Monday. Boonsboro's Nick Zaccaria was a model of consistency, carding a 3-over-par 75 without any birdies, going out in 37 and in at 38 over the 6,448-yard, par-72 layout. Smithsburg's Alicia Grier, playing from the ladies' 5,262-yard markers, had a Jekyll and Hyde round, opening with a 41 but then coming alive with three birdies on the back nine that ended with a 34. Sharing first place, each won a $500 scholarship, as did St. James' Kim Eaton, who ended in third place with a 39-38 for a 5-over 77, just edging out Scott Steiner, who turned in a 78 as the week-long WACO festivities began.

Even though Gary Carpenter won the 30th WACO Open on Sunday at Beaver Creek Country Club on the second playoff hole, it was the first playoff hole that enabled him to be in a position to win. With Kenny Smith staring down at a possible eagle putt on the 505-yard par-5 15th, Carpenter's ball sat in the rough. The first-round leader knew he had to come up with something very good. His chip, however, did not roll out to the cup and he was left with a 10-foot putt for a birdie - knowing he needed to make it to have a chance at halving the hole with Smith.

Many asked the same question - “Who is Gary Carpenter?” Aside from being a nice guy and a pretty good golfer, Carpenter is the leader after carding a 3-under-par 69 for a 1-stroke lead over Rob Cimarolli heading into today's final round. Cimarolli, of Pittsburgh, recorded a late afternoon 70. Three golfers are locked in a third-place tie, including former WACO champion Kenny Smith along with Alex Hoffman and Bernie Deane.

Chuck Thatcher has been a regular contender for the WACO title in recent years. In 2011, he held the first-round lead before faltering to a 75 in the second round. Last year, he put up a 67 in the second round, following an opening-round 74, nearly netting him the title. This time, Thatcher will be out to connect both ends of the 36-hole tournament and come up with a title in the 30th WACO championship at Beaver Creek Country Club Saturday and Sunday. “My goal is 68-68, I think 8-under would win,” Thatcher said.

Ryan Crabtree pulled off his own version of a double-double on Monday at Beaver Creek Country Club. With the WACO Junior Golf player of the year title tucked away, Crabtree went out and won the championship, going down to the final hole before pulling out the victory. Crabtree was the player of the year in 2012 but did not win the championship. Monday's 18th hole will add to the happy memory bank for 2013. Stepping to the final tee box, Crabtree and Cody Trunkle were tied. Crabtree hit the fairway while Trunkle found trouble in the trees, eventually leading to a double bogey.

HAGERSTOWN - Things could have gotten away from Nik Steiner on the 18th hole Thursday, but a clutch iron shot led to a bogey-saving putt. Steiner captured the WACO Junior Golf Championship at Beaver Creek Country Club with a 7-over-par 79, one shot better than Chad Shindle's 80. “I hit the cart path on 18, had to re-tee and then hit a nice iron to the pin,” said Steiner, winning a WACO event for the second time this season. His fourth shot from 120 yards came to rest about 12 feet from the pin on the dogleg 18th, and Steiner rolled in the putt for a bogey that saved him from falling into a tie with Shindle.
