In this month’s Wildcat Video Minute, Grant Boone (’91) and Emmy Award-winning CBS Sports producer Lance Barrow (’77) – as well as ACU’s Alex Carpenter, one of the best collegiate golfers in the nation – recently teamed up for a little fun with ACU president Dr. Phil Schubert (’91). Boone is an ACU alumni relations officer and the play-by-play voice of Wildcat sports radio broadcasts.
Winner of the 2010 Southern Amateur and what is believed to be a collegiate record 20 tournaments during his four-year career, as well as the Phil Mickelson Award and the Jack Nicklaus Award, Carpenter will be playing this summer in the international Palmer Cup for the second time. That Ryder Cup-style tournament – June 7-9 at Wilmington Country Club in Wilmington, Del. – pits the best collegians from the U.S. against those from Europe. A May 2013 graduate, Carpenter is the only U.S. representative from a non-Division I program.
Carpenter is a three-time all-America selection who appeared in the April 22 edition of Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd”.
