Sekulic Set to Play in the 121st U.S. Amateur Championship
PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State men's golfer Max Sekulic is set to play in the 121st U.S. Amateur Championship, which runs from Aug. 9-15 at Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club.
Sekulic, a redshirt senior from Rycroft, Canada, qualified for the 121st U.S. Amateur Championship after finishing first at an U.S. Amateur Qualifier at Palouse Ridge Golf Course in late June. Playing on his home course, Sekulic carded a 66 (-4) in back-to-back rounds, as he finished his 36-hole day with 11 birdies and three bogeys.
The U.S. Amateur Championship begins on Aug. 9 at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. The round of 64, which is set for Aug. 11, will stream live on Peacock and air on the NBC Golf channel.
It's been a successful summer for Sekulic, as he recently won the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship. Sekulic shot five-under par (66) in his final round to win the title by two strokes. The redshirt senior carded 17-under par (267) during his four rounds at Windsor, Ontario's Ambassador Golf Club, which was one stroke off the stroke play scoring record for the Canadian Amateur.
As the Canadian Amateur champion, Sekulic will get his first taste of action on the PGA Tour next year, as he earns a spot to play in the RBC Canadian Open.
