Bobby Wyatt finished at the top in qualifying at the US Amateur championship at Cherry Hills, and his hope is he's just getting started.
Wyatt, a junior at the University of Alabama, shot a 2-under 68 Tuesday at CommonGround golf course for a two-day qualifying score of 9-under 132 to snag the top seed heading into match play. He also tied the 36-hole tournament record for stroke play, accomplished previously in 2011 by Gregor Main and in 1994 by Hank Kim.
"It's very humbling to have part of that record," said Wyatt, who finished two strokes in front of second-place qualifiers Cheng-Tsung Pan of Taiwan and Jeff Osberg of West Chester, Pa. "They change courses every year and there have been a lot of courses that par is higher than 70 (CommonGround) and 71 (Cherry Hills), but it's an honor. There have been a lot of great names to play in this championship and to do that certainly means a lot, but I have a lot of work to do this week."
Wyatt will face...
