Greenwell Gunning for Amateur Titles
Aug. 4, 2006
MEMPHIS, Tenn.- University of Memphis junior Robbie Greenwell fired back-to-back 68s on Wednesday and Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y., to take second place at the U.S. Amateur qualifier and earn a place at the 2006 U.S. Amateur at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn.
The U.S. Amateur berth is the highlight of an already successful summer for the Georgetown, Ontario, native, who last month finished second at his home province's amateur tournament and earned a spot at the 2006 Canadian Amateur Championships Aug. 12-18 at the Mississaugua Golf and Country Club.
With the U.S. Amateur slated for Aug. 21-27, Greenwell is set to play in North America's biggest amateur tournaments in consecutive weeks. For more information on the U.S. Amateur, visit www.usga.org. For more information on the Canadian amateur, visit www.rcga.org.
