Garrett Second Davidson Golfer to Qualify for U.S. Amateur
ODESSA, Texas – Davidson’s Brian Garrett recently became the second Wildcat men’s golfer to qualify for the 2021 U.S. Amateur Championship, the most prestigious tournament in the United States for amateur golfers.
The recipient of the Graeme M. Keith and Covington Golf Scholarships, Garrett joins classmate Ethan Hall in the 312-player field. Hall punched his ticket two weeks ago by winning the Mill Creek Golf Club qualifier in Mebane.
“Qualifying for the U.S. Amateur not only accomplishes a lifelong goal of mine,” said Garrett. “It has become one of the greatest accomplishments of my career. I am beyond excited to compete with Ethan at Oakmont and to have the experience of a lifetime!”
A rising junior from San Antonio, Texas, Garrett finished runner-up at Odessa Country Club Wednesday with a 36-hole total of 2-under 142.
Highlighted by 10 birdies over two days, the 2021 All-Conference performer opened with a 69 before closing with a 73 to finish one behind Medalist Lane Wallace.
The 2021 U.S. Amateur will take place August 9-15 with two rounds of stroke play followed by the Top-64 finishers advancing to the match play portion at historic Oakmont Country Club. Longue Vue Club will serve as a co-host venue for the 312-player stroke play field.
