Bayonet/Black Horse Golf Course member Nick Moore of Seaside and four others are on their way to this year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship.
Moore, David Moore of Monterey and San Francisco’s John Sawin all shared medalist honors with identical scores of 2-under 70 in a qualifier for the championship held Tuesday at par-72 Bayonet/Black Horse GC. Nick Moore, who won this year’s NCGA Public Links Championship title, learned to play at Bayonet/Black Horse.
Also moving on to the championship proper were Jordan Scott of Santa Barbara and Burlingame’s Domingo Jojola, who advanced with scores of 71 after surviving a three-for-two playoff with Jordan McRobie of Menlo Park.
McRobie earned the first alternate spot, while Kelly Garland of Bandon, Ore. took the second alternate spot with a 72.
This year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship will tee off Oct. 3-8 at John’s Island Club in Florida.
