Brad Carpenter

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Senior Golfer Brad Carpenter from Washington High School. In a recent match against Fort Zumwalt South at Wolf Hollow, Brad carded a six under par 29 to lead the team to a 148-176 win over the Bulldogs. Brad will attend Missouri State University in Springfield on a golf and academic scholarship. He started playing golf at the age of 12 and developed an immediate love for the game. Brad is accurate off the tee and rarely misses a green, but one part of his game that needs to improve is his putting, which he works on daily. Brad taught himself how to play and didn't take his first lesson until his second year of high school. His goal is to win state this year. Brad took first place in the Battle of the Bulldog at WingHaven Wednesday with a 2-under 70.

Although a few pitchers are slated to throw side sessions, manager Mike Matheny is giving most of his players the day off before the Grapefruit League slate begins. The Cards did a "27 outs" defensive drill yesterday. The Cardinals play their first spring game tomorrow. The Cards take on the Miami Marlins in the Grapefruit League opener at 12:05 p.m. at Roger Dean Stadium.
