Five players with Missouri connections are midway through the 36 hole qualifying rounds at the US Amateur at Atlanta Athletic Club. Former Mizzou #1 player Emilio Quartero from Spain leads our list with an even-par 71 at the AAC’s Highland Course. Kansas State’s Kyle Weldon shot a two-over 73 and Mizzou senior Ryan Zech from Kearney fired a +4 75 at that course.
The River Course at Atlanta Athletic Club saw Joe Migdal, a recent grad from Central Missouri State, shoot 76 (+4). Tanner Mckinney, from Farmington and Mineral Area College, shot a 79 on the par 72 course.
Good luck to all five as they finish their qualifying rounds today in an attempt to make the 64 in match play competition.
