Men's Golf Summer Update
July 15, 2014
Former and current Commodore golfers have been very busy this summer, competing at tournaments across the country and the globe. Here's a look at what some of what they are doing across all levels of golf.
Snedeker heading to the Open Championship
PGA star Brandt Snedeker is heading across the pond to compete at the Open Championship this weekend at Royal Liverpool in Liverpool, England. The Nashville native will be competing in his seventh British Open, with his best finish coming in 2012 when he finished in a tie for third. In 2013, Snedeker finished in a tie for 11th.
Currently, Snedeker is 88th in the 2014 FedExCup standings.
Curran, List on Web.com Tour
Former All-American Jon Curran is having quite the season on the Web.com Tour, and is in prime position to earn his PGA Tour card for 2015. Curran is fourth on the Web.com money list and would earn an exemption to the PGA Tour in 2015 if the tour ended today. The top 25 on the Web.com money list automatically earn their PGA Tour card. This season on the Web.com Tour, Curran has one victory, three top 10's and six top 25's in 14 events played.
Luke List, another Commodore All-American, has played in 11 events this season and has one top 25 finish.
Both Curran and List will compete at the Albertson's Boise Open this weekend at the Hillcrest Country Club in Boise, Idaho.
Fogler qualifies for 2014 U.S. Amateur
Rising senior Ben Fogler qualified for the 2014 U.S. Amateur in Atlanta, Ga., at the Atlanta Athletic Club August 11-17 after posting a 71-64 July 7-8 in qualifying at the Columbia Country Club in Blythewood, S.C. It will be Fogler's first career U.S. Amateur.
Stewart leads the way at Commodore-laden Players Amateur
Rising senior Hunter Stewart finished second at the 2014 Players Amateur after winning the event in 2013 and earning an automatic exemption into the RBC Heritage in April of 2014. Stewart finished in a tie for 2nd after firing a 10-under par, 278 (69-69-71-69) this year.
The Players Amateur is one of the most prestigious amateur tournaments in the United States and the world.
Stewart was joined by teammates Carson Jacobs, who finished in a tie for 21st, Jordan Janico, who ended the tournament in 43rd, and Ben Fogler, John Voetsch, Spencer Ciesla, Zack Jaworski, Michael Decker, and Zach Herr. The Commodores had more representatives at the Players Amateur than from any other university.
