The 2014 champion has been a medalist during the stroke play portion 4 of the past 6 years. Harvey’s a blue blood of mid-am golf, and his game revolves around his stellar wedge play.
The former University of Clemson star and mini-tour player recently got his amateur status back. While May doesn’t have the amateur record and pedigree of Harvey, he has played in multiple Tour events and a U.S. Open.
The North Texas native ousted former PGA Tour player and college All-American Jess Daley to make it to the quarterfinals. Irving is the highest remaining seed at 58, having shot +8 in his two qualifying rounds.
The Pasadena native has been plowing through the field, eliminating all three of his opponents before the 18th hole. This year, Sullivan won the Pasadena City Amateur and also made the round of 16 in the 2013 U.S. Mid Amateur.
The local Philly legend has played in countless USGA events and won this year’s Philadelphia Amateur held at Merion.
The Southern California native moved to NYC in 2014 and has since been a dominant force in the MET section. Hagestad’s game revolves around his strong tee-to-green game and, like Sullivan Hagestad, has yet to have a match extended to the 18th hole in this year’s championship.
A co-medalist and former PGA Tour pro who amassed over $500,000 in earnings during his two years on the PGA Tour… not quite sure how he managed to make his way back onto the mid-amateur circuit…
The former Miami University player calls the course (Oakland Hills C.C.) home. Strickland is one of Michigan’s top amateurs with multiple state championships to his name.
