Glenn Northcutt Qualifies For The 2010 U.S. Amateur
July 29, 2010
ATLANTA - Former Auburn golfer Glenn Northcutt joined sophomore Blayne Barber as the second Auburn golfer to qualify for the 2010 U.S. Amateur, tying for second at the Piedmont Driving Club sectional Tuesday in Atlanta.
The Dothan, Ala., native shot 6-under through 36 holes, compliments of three birdies through his final eight holes. The 2010 event will mark his third appearance at the U.S. Amateur.
Northcutt finished Monday's opening round tied for the lead at 4-under.
"The first day I played solid but the second-round front nine was probably one of my worst nine-hole stretches this summer," said Northcutt. "There was a bit of a rain delay during the middle of Tuesday's round that let me collect myself and come out with the score I need to qualify.
"This will be my third time at the U.S. Am. I'm going to keep working hard to reach my goal of going farther than last year."
Northcutt finished his Auburn career after the 2008-09 season with a 73.18 scoring average, the eighth best in school history. Northcutt also counted 122-of-136 rounds, carded 38 sub-par rounds and earned 13 top-10 finishes through four seasons on The Plains.
The 2010 U.S. Amateur is set for August 23-29 at the Chambers Bay Golf Course in Tacoma, Washington. Complete U.S. Amateur information and qualifying results can be found at www.USGA.com.
