Area players miss on U.S. Amateur qualifying

No area players advanced from the four Florida qualifying sites for entry into this year's United States Amateur, which took place across the state in the past week.

Chris Kennedy
came the closest.

The Cardinal Mooney alum and Lakewood Ranch resident fired a final round 71, but his first-round 75 left him with a 146 total and two shots out of the final qualifying berth.

Kennedy played his qualifier at Cypress Run Golf Club in Tarpon Springs, and only two berths were up for grabs. Players finishing at 145 had a playoff for the first and second alternate spots.

The U.S. Amateur has sort of called Bradenton home the past two years, as Ben An and Peter Uihlein once lived here.

An won the title in 2009 and Uihlein triumphed in 2010.
