Three Clemson Golfers Qualify for United States Amateur

July 26, 2007

Clemson, SC – Clemson golfers Tanner Ervin, Phillip Mollica and Kyle Stanley have qualified for the United States Amateur. The US Amateur will be held at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, August 20-26. A field of 312 players from around the world will compete in the event.

Ervin, Mollica and Stanley all qualified earlier this week through sectional play at three different sites. Ervin fired a 36-hole score of 134 to rank as the number-one qualifier from the Patriot Club @ Grand Harbor in Nine-Six, SC. He was six shots ahead of the second place competitor.

Mollica was the number-two qualifier the Holly Course at Pinewild Country Club in Pinehurst with a 36-hole score of 139. Zack Seifert, a rising senior on the Clemson team, shot a 142 and is the number-one alternate from that site.

Kyle Stanley had rounds of 69-67 to finish with a 136 total for his two rounds at The Crabapple Course at the Capital city Club in Woodstock, GA. The Clemson All-American and ACC Player of the year was the number-two qualifier from Woodstock, GA.

Stanley is also hopefully of being selected to the United States Walker Cup team next week. If he is selected to that team, it would create another stop in the US Amateur field for an alternate. Stanley’s next tournament will be next week when he competes in the Western Amateur at Point O’Woods Golf Course in Benton Harbor, MI.

Other Clemson golfers, including sophomore Sam Saunders, will attempt to qualify through a sectional tournament next week.
