Danos Salesman Toby Zeringue (right) and Premium Oilfield Services Salesman Shawn Stoute partnered in March to try to qualify for the USGA’s U.S. Amateur Four-Ball tournament held at Jupiter Hills Club in Tequesta, FL towards the end of May.
There were 2,279 teams spread out across the country that entered into state and regional qualifying as they try to enter this prestigious event. Out of the 2,279 entries, only 128 teams will make it through qualifying to play for the National Championship.
At the Houston, TX qualifier held at Golfcrest Country Club in March, Toby and Shawn fired a 7 under 65 to finish as co-medalist. They will now travel to Florida May 19 through May 23 to compete for the USGA Amateur Four-Ball Championship against some of the best amateur golfers in the nation.
The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball is an amateur team golf tournament conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA). It was first played in 2015 and replaced the U.S. Amateur Public Links, an individual tournament that was played from 1922 to 2014.
The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball is played by teams of two golfers where each player plays his own ball. The team will record the best score on each hole as their team’s score.
128 teams will compete in a 36-hole stroke play qualifier that determines the field of 32 teams for match play.
The U.S. Amateur Four-Ball begins with 18-hole sectional qualifying conducted by state and regional golf associations. At the national championship, 128 two-player teams will each play their own ball throughout the round. Each team’s score will be determined by using the lower score of the partners for each hole. After 36 holes of stroke-play qualifying, the field will be reduced to the low 32 teams for the championship’s match-play bracket, from which the eventual champion will be determined.
