$35,000 Non-Pro Any Age Goes To Desmond Robbins

nursecharlesNurse Charles and Desmond Robbins • Hart PhotosA relative newcomer to cutting, Desmond Robbins still has a hard time with the competitive aspect of the sport. Of course he wants to win every time he goes out. Then again, he doesn’t like watching his friends lose. Monday night, he walked out of the James Brown Arena at the Augusta Futurity, in Augusta, Ga., dealing with the paradox.

Robbins claimed his first major title when he and Nurse Charles rung up a score of 217 to win the $35,000 Non-Pro Any Age by 2.5 points. With his first Augusta Futurity title, Robbins of Goldsboro, N.C. earned $2,600.
