Ryan Marter of Columbia, SC and Trent Phillips of Inman, SC, finished at 5-under-par to tie for medalist honors. This qualifier was 36 holes of individual stroke play with six qualifying spots and two alternate positions up for grabs. It took place at Brickyard Golf Club on July 23-24, 2018.
Marter, who is a rising sophomore at Wofford College, had rounds of (68,71) 139 and two eagles. The first one came in round one on the 495-yard par-5 eighteenth hole and the second came during round two on the 477-yard par-5 ninth hole. Trent Phillips, who will be a freshman at the University of Georgia this fall, joins his brother who qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship a week ago at Jennings Mill Country Club. Phillips posted rounds of (71,68) 139 and had six birdies during round two.
Following behind the leaders was Andy Ogletree of Little Rock, MS, who fired a 4-under-par (71,69) 140 across the two rounds to qualify. Davis Shore of Brentwood,TN, and Grant Sutliff of Cumming, both qualified with scores of 3-under-par 141.
There were two players tied at 2-under-par 142 so a playoff was needed to determine the final qualifying spot. Trace Crowe of Auburn, AL won the playoff against Sam Goldasich of Birmingham, AL, to grab the final spot. Goldasich will be the first alternate. Ben Fuller of Birmingham, AL, SM Lee of Dacula, and Zachary Healy of Peachtree Corners, all posted a 1-under-par 143 so another playoff was needed to determine the second alternate position. Fuller captured the alternate spot in the playoff.
