Philip Reale of Hurricane and Davey Jude of Kermit qualified as alternates into US Mid-Amateur qualifying from Wednesday’s event at Bridgeport Country Club.  A total of 57 golfers from West Virginia and 11 other states, Mexico and Wales competed for three qualifying spots to advance in US Mid-Amateur qualifying, as well as two alternate positions.

The three qualifiers were:

  • Brett Young of Bethel Park, PA, (-9) 63;
  • Casey Schrader of Chagrin Falls, OH, (-4) 68; and
  • Ryan Greer of Knoxville, TN, (-3) 69.

Reale and Jude were tied with Greer three under par following 36 holes of regulation play.  A three-hole playoff took place to determine the final qualifier and the order of the two alternates.

The West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA), in support and collaboration with the United States Golf Association (USGA), conducted the US Mid-Amateur qualifier.

Bridgeport’s Head Golf Professional Michael Gervais said, “We were excited to host this event with a full field coming from all over the country, the world and our region.  It was a good challenge for them.”
