Incoming Men’s Golfer Qualifies for U.S. Amateur

The Nova Southeastern men’s golf team continues to shine after capturing its first NCAA Division II National Championship this Spring, as incoming freshman Hunter O’Mahony (Tequesta, FL) has qualified to compete at the U.S. Amateur Championship in August.

O’Mahony posted a two-round score of 144, even par, to capture the medalist honors at his sectional qualifier at The Wanderers Club in Wellington, FL. Gary Nicklaus, son of former PGA player Jack, finished one stroke behind O’Mahony and also advanced to the U.S. Amateur.

The U.S. Amateur will be hosted at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, CO during Aug. 13 to 19. The par-71 course will play at 7,432 yards, the fourth longest course in U.S. Amateur history. The USGA accepted a total of 6,443 entries for the 2012 tournament, with 44 exemptions and 131 sectional qualifiers (through July 23) earning the right to play at Cherry Hill.
