U.S.Amateur Qualifier – Updates and Alerts

U. S. Amateur sectional qualifying will begin anew on Tuesday, July 9 at 7:30 AM.  On Monday, players were pulled off the practice areas at 7:15 AM, before a single shot could be struck, as lightning was observed in the area.  Start times were delayed several times through the morning as heavy rain created unplayable conditions and lightning was still in the area.  After a tour of the golf course in the afternoon, officials determined that it would not be possible to return the golf course to playable condition Monday and begin play. Bunkers were washed out and full of water, fairways were littered with debris from over flowing streams, and extremely wet conditions throughout the golf course made play impractical.

Monday start times will be in effect  for Tuesday play. The field will be cut to the low 40% of the field and ties (based on the number of players who start play Tuesday). The second round will be played on Wednesday.  With over 100 players competing, there are too many players to play 36 holes in one day.
