U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualifying Set for Monday at CC of St. Albans


St. Albans, MO  – U.S. Amateur Four Ball qualifying conducted by MAGA is set for this Monday, August 30, at the Country Club of St. Albans in St. Albans, Missouri.

The seventh playing of the U.S. Amateur Four Ball Championship will take place May 14-18, 2022, at the Country Club of Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Nearly 5,000 players from around the world will compete for a place in the championship, with 128 sides compromising the starting field, and only one side emerging as champions.

48 teams of 2, a total of 96 players, will tee it up on Monday. Two qualifying team spots are available along with two alternate teams.

Tony Gumper and Ryan Eckelkamp make up a team competing on Monday. The pair qualified for the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship after going 8-under at last year’s qualifying at Crown Pointe Golf Club. Eckelkamp, along with teammate Chris Kovach, recently took first place in the 2021 Missouri Golf Association Four Ball Championship shooting 17-under over two days.

Another duo to look out for is Chad Niezing and Sam Migdal. Migdal is the reigning Old Warson Cup winner, having bested the top 16 players from last year’s MAGA Player of the Year standings at Old Warson Country Club this past June in match play. Migdal also earned one of two qualifying spots to the 40th U.S. Mid-Amateur at MAGA’s qualifier at Kokopelli Golf Club last week. Migdal joins Chad Niezing, who recently earned Runner-Up honors at the 2021 Missouri Golf Association Amateur Championship.

Skip Berkmeyer and Brad Nurski join the field again after a well-fought battle at last year’s qualifying, shooting 5-under and just missing an alternate position. Berkmeyer was a semifinalist at the Old Warson Cup in June, and also qualifies for the 40th U.S. Mid-Amateur through an exemption based on his World Amateur Golf Ranking.

First tee times will go off at 7:30 am CT off hole 1. 

Groupings and tee times are available on GolfGenius with the GGID RTVWTT.
