Cannon School freshman Amanda Sambach will play on a sponsor exemption

Davidson, NC  – Amanda Sambach – an accomplished junior golfer and ninth grader at the Cannon School – has accepted an exemption to play in the 2018 Symetra Classic, tournament organizers announced today. The exemption will allow Amanda – an amateur – to play in her first professional event.

“We are excited that Amanda will make her first appearance in a professional event in her hometown of Davidson,” said tournament director Jon Show. “The spirit of the Symetra Tour is to provide playing opportunities for the future stars of the game, and we hope this experience greatly benefits Amanda as she prepares for the next level of competition.”
