Hicks, Keiley, Purser Advance to U.S. Amateur

University of Utah’s Gentry Hicks won medalist honors at the U.S. Amateur Qualifying at the Promontory Nicklaus Course near Park City with solid rounds of 74-69-143. Justin Keiley, after a first round score of 79 that would have discouraged most golfers, shot a 67 in the afternoon round to post a second place finish of 146. Hicks and Keiley were the only players to post a round in the 60s and they will now both advance to the U.S. Amateur later in the month.
 
Three players tied for the other qualifying spot, Devon Purser, Mike Jurca, and Mason Casper with Purser winning the playoff.
