State Am Champions Light It Up at Alpine; Parkinson, Blair Qualify for U.S. Am
Two BYU golfers lit it up at Alpine Country Club Monday and qualified for the U.S. Amateur next month. Joe Parkinson topped the field with rounds of 65-66-131 and his teammate Zac Blair was just two shots back with rounds of 65-68-133.
First alternate was George Cunningham with 66-69-135, and Stratton Schulz was second alternate with rounds of 69-67-136.
“There was very little wind and conditions were perfect for scoring and the players lit it up,” said Bill Walker, UGA Executive Director. Fifteen players shot par or better.
Five former Utah State Amateur champions finished in the top nine scores and a sixth State Am champion tied for 12th.
Parkinson and Blair are both former Utah State Am champions and the other three in the top nine were Jon Wright, Dan Horner, and this year’s champion, Cole Ogden, who is another Cougar.
Stratton Schulz, a runnerup at the State Am, finished in fourth place.
