Former Cal golfer Ian Dahl is headed to this year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship.
Dahl, who now works at the Northern California Golf Association, fired a medalist-earning 4-under 68 at Monday’s 18-hole qualifier at Fountaingrove GC in Santa Rosa. He’d card six birdies with just two bogeys.
Also earning automatic spots were Ian Albrecht of Sonoma and Kyle Hopkins of Santa Rosa, who each came in with scores of 71 and 72, respectively.
The first alternate is Luis Diaz of Santa Rosa. The second alternate is Michael Jensen of San Francisco.
In the Women’s Mid-Amateur qualifier, Hana Kim of Los Angeles led the way with a 76, followed by Arielle Swan of Seaside (80) and Kelly Wilson of El Dorado Hills (81).
This year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur will tee off Sept. 21-27 at Charlotte CC. The U.S. Women’s Mid-Am will be held at Norwood Hills CC in St. Louis (Sept. 21-27).
