Cam Davis qualifies for US Amateur

The NSW High Performance athletes as well as a number of other NSW golfers are now mid-way through their international tournament campaign. Many of them started at the Scottish Stroke Play Championship in May and finish with the US Amateur in late August. The trip is interjected by the Golf Australia National Camp in Houston, Texas in late July.

Cameron Davis qualified for the US Amateur Championship as one of three low scorers during the U.S. Amateur Qualifying event held at Ruth Lake Country Club in Illinois.  He was in a three-way playoff for one spot and birdied to scrape in to advance to the Championship. View Results

Other great performances have been in the British Amateur with Harrison Endycott and Cameron Davis qualifying for match play and Endycott losing in the round of 32 to the eventual winner Romain Langasque of France.

The St Andrews Links Trophy was played on the old course just one month before the British Open. The grandstands and leaderboards were all up and Cameron Davis commented that “I got chills up my spine from the aura of the place on almost every shot.” It was a great experience for them all.

They are currently in the USA in numerous world ranking events in preparation for the big three of the Southern, Western and US Amateur.

The Sahalee Amateur saw Dale Brandt-Richards finish one under in 5th and Troy Moses 14th on two over par. Click to view Troy's blog.

Coach Dean Kinney said, "Golf NSW has recently starting working with the Elite Performance Group Precision Athletica based at Olympic Park in Sydney. This will ensure our elite golfers are leading the industry in physical preparation to face the challenges ahead."
