Sectional qualifying is in progress right now at sites around the country for the United States Amateur Championship. One of those sectionals was held at Lantana Golf Club a couple days ago, with two spots in the Am, plus two alternate positions, up for grabs.
Who did the grabbing? Bill Alcorn of Abilene and Raul Lemus of Mission earned trips to the Amateur; Ryan Posey of Dallas and Anthony Broussard of Beaumont gained alternate status.
Yesterday there was a qualifier at Blackhorse Golf Club in Houston, this one with three spots in the field available, plus two alternate positions. Ryan Baca of Richmond, Bronson Burgoon of The Woodlands and Jordan Hasbrouck of Spring are the winners; Brandon Burgoon of The Woodlands and Jhonnaton Vegas of Venezuela are the alternates. (How much you want to bet that the Burgoon boys are twins?)
Update: Here are the results from a qualifier at Great Southwest Golf Club in Grand Prairie: Zack Reeves of Arlington and Franklin Corpening of Fort Worth are the two qualifiers. Mike Camp of Southlake and Bobby Massa of Dallas are the two alternates.
Other qualifying results can be found on the USGA website.
