ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (Oct. 15, 2013) — The 10th annual St. Augustine Amateur will be held Oct. 18-20 at St. John’s Golf Club in Elkton, Fla.
Defending champion Jack Maguire of Florida State will not be in the field, meaning the event will crown its 10th champion.
A field full of some of the game’s top rising stars and experienced mid-amateurs take aim at the coveted title, which awards Golfweek/amateurgolf.com U.S. Player Rankings points.
Led by 2013 U.S. Open participant Grayson Murray, the field for the 2013 St. Augustine Amateur is sure to add to the growing list of top-flight amateurs and now-professionals the event calls past champions, including Peter Uihlein, the former world’s top-ranked amateur.
Murray, who’ll attend Arizona State University starting in the spring semester, was one of just 10 amateurs to qualify for the U.S. Open at Merion and will no doubt be a contender at St. John’s Golf Club. He’ll surely be challenged by a host of established mid-amateurs, including Bermuda’s Jarryd Dillas, a four-time winner of the Bermuda Amateur Match Play Championship and up-and-coming collegians and juniors, including Remec Carlson of the IMG Academy and University of Houston golfer Greg Schmaus.
The St. Augustine Amateur is a national event established in 2004 for better amateur and collegiate players. The winner receives the John C. Jennison III Trophy in honor of the tournament founder and accomplished amateur player. All net proceeds of the event benefit The First Tee of North Florida. The current tournament co-Chairmen are Wes Tucker and John Jennison IV.
