P.B. Dye is world famous for his treacherous golf layouts.

On Sunday, however, some young York County golfers gave strong performances on one of Dye's difficult tracks at a prestigious junior championship.

Carson Bacha, an eighth grader at Central York Middle School, triumphed at a Philadelphia Junior Tour event at Iron Valley Golf Club near Lebanon.

The Dye design includes his signature railroad tie bunkers and an island green par 3.

Bacha fired an impressive 1-under-par 71 to card the low round of the day and take home the win in the Boys' 13-15 Division. Bacha’s round was highlighted by three birdies in a row on the first, second and third holes. Bacha finished one shot ahead of Andrew Curran of Media.

Another Yorker, Andrew Forjan, fared well in the Boys' 16-18 Division. It took a match of cards to decide the crown after Forjan and Robert Falconer of Mechanicsburg were tied after 18 holes at 74. Falconer came out on top of the tie-breaker with an even-par 36 on the back nine. Forjan is a junior at York Catholic High School.

In the Girls' 16-18 Division, Wrightsville's Alexandra Lowder took second after shooting a 95. Conshohocken's Casey Oppenheimer shot a 94 to win the division. Lowder is a junior at Eastern York.
