Bebich Set for Next Week’s U.S. Men’s Amateur Championship
PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State men's golf junior Preston Bebich is set to begin his run at the 122nd U.S. Amateur Championship this Monday, Aug. 15, at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey.
Bebich, a native of Gig Harbor, Washington, earned his bid into this year's U.S. Amateur Championship by finishing third at the U.S. Amateur qualifying event at The Home Course in DuPont, Washington back on July 6. Bebich carded 7-under 137 at the end of two rounds of play to finish in a tie for third with Canada's Keith Ng. The two went into a playoff with Bebich claiming the final U.S. Amateur Championship spot on the fifth extra hole.
The junior will give Washington State its second-straight representative at the U.S. Amateur Championship, as last season Max Sekulic played in the event after winning the Canadian Amateur Open.
The 122nd U.S. Amateur Championship will take place Aug. 15-21 at The Ridgewood Country Club, Paramus, New Jersey. Rounds during Aug. 17 will air on Peacock from 12-1 p.m. PT and on the NBC Golf Channel from 1-3 p.m. PT.
