No cut 90 player field!

Rookie Aaron Wise breaks scoring record in capturing the 2018 Byron Nelson for his 1st PGA Tour victory. Aaron was T6 in the 2014 Southwestern Amateur.

Jino Sohn is back to defend his 2017 championship!

Its a family affair! This year's participant Cameron Meeks indicated on his entry that his father Eric Meeks, and his uncle Aaron Meeks, both played in the Southwestern Amateur in 1986. His father finished 5th and his uncle finished 2nd

 

Eric was the 1988 US AM champion, 1989 Walker Cup team member and is a member of the University of Arizona Hall of Fame.

Colby Harwell, a very well known mid-amateur player in Texas, has entered the 2018 Southwestern Amateur. He earned the Texas Golf Association’s top honor as Texas Player of the Year.

In 2017 he won the Texas Mid-Am and the Texas Mid-Am Match Play --- the first time anyone has claimed the two biggest mid-am prizes in the same year.

Congratulations to Rice University senior, Mario Carmona, from Mexico, who tied for 6th place at the Conference USA Championship this weekend. This was his 18th round of par or better this year and the 47th of his career. Mario tied for 18th at the 102nd Southwestern Amateur last year, and is entered in the 103rd this June on the Cochise course at Desert Mountain
