Karbowski to play in BOA Championship

Rick Karbowski of Worcester has received a sponsor's exemption to play in the Bank of America Championship. Karbowski, 52, played regularly on the Champions Tour last year, but missed the BOA because Nashawtuc Country Club in Concord was flooded and the tournament was canceled. Karbowski lost his exempt status for this year and must earn his way into tournaments at Monday qualifiers. He has played in two Champions Tour events, tying for 17th in the Toshiba Classic in March and tying for 66th in the Senior PGA 2-1/2 weeks ago. Kirk Hanefeld, former director of golf at The International GC in Bolton; Denny Hepler of the Golf Channel's Big Break series; and Dan Pohl also received sponsor's exemptions. The BOA will be held June 22-24.

Matt Smith shot a 73 to lead Tourtellotte High to a fourth-place finish in Connecticut's CIAC Division 4 championship.
