BROOKLINE, Massachusetts – Qualifying for one of Mass Golf’s oldest events is officially underway. The Mass Amateur will be held at Brae Burn Country Club from July 12-16 and on Thursday, qualifying for the Championship began at Brookline Golf Course.
Nicholas Carter (Plymouth Country Club) had the best day of all competitors and took home medalist honors shooting 1-under-par 69. Carter was the lone player at Brookline to shoot under par. A few key holes for him included an eagle on the par-5 sixth hole, plus three other birdies to help him reach his mark of one under.
Sean McReynolds (Braintree Municipal Golf Course), tallied three birdies during his round as he was the only player to shoot an even par-70.
Daniel Cappucci (Boston Golf Club) and Aengus McAllister (The Country Club) tied for third place, both shooing 1-over-par 71 for their round. McAllister had a nice stretch of play on Holes 11 and 12, picking up back-to-back birdies to help secure his spot above the cut line.
The next two qualifying events for the Mass Amateur will take place Monday, June 7 at Wilbraham Country Club and Tedesco Country Club.
