Cherry Hills Village, Colo. - Starting Monday a group of four players with Virginia ties open play at the 112th U.S. Amateur Championship Monday in Cherry Hills Village, Colo. The group includes UVa head men's golf coach Bowen Sargent, sophomore Denny McCarthy, incoming freshmen Nick McLaughlin and recent graduate Cory Siegfried.
The tournament features 36 holes of stroke play Monday and Tuesday before the field is reduced to 64 players for match play, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 19.
