For the third time in four years, the UConn men’s golf team will be represented at the U.S. Amateur Championship.
UConn rising senior Eric Dietrich of Cheshire carded a blistering 8-under par 64 in the second round of the two-round U.S. Amateur qualifying tournament in July, to finish with a 9-under 135 (71-64=135), topping the 72-player field at Ellington Ridge Country Club.
The best two scores qualify to participate in the prestigious U.S. Amateur Championship, meaning Dietrich and Clark Robinson (70-68=138), a rising senior at Marshall University who hails from South Windsor, head for Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., to compete for the national title on Aug. 15-21.
