Pfeil, Daniel Punch Tickets to U.S. Senior Amateur and U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur
Quincy, IL – David Pfeil and Kay Daniel each punched their tickets to the U.S. Senior Amateur and U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur at MAGA’s qualifier at Quincy Country Club on Monday.
Pfeil fired a 1-over 71 to claim the qualifying spot to the 66th U.S. Senior Amateur. The Eureka, Missouri, native started with three straight bogeys, but bounced back with three birdies, two coming on No.’s 8 and 9, to make the turn at even par.
A pair of bogeys on the par 4 12th and 14th pushed the round to 2-over, but making a birdie on the last got him in at 1-over 71.
“Quincy Country Club was wonderful, to think it’s only 6,400 yards, man it’s a hard 6,400-yard golf course,” Pfeil said. “I made some putts finally, I started out bogey-bogey-bogey, and was thinking I just played myself out of it. I came back with a few more birdies and had a decent round.”
Scott Briggs and Harry Roberts are first and second alternate, respectively. Briggs earned the first spot in a playoff after both posted 3-over 73s in the final grouping of the day.
The U.S. Senior Amateur will take place August 28 through September 2nd at the Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan.
Kay Daniel earned the qualifying spot to the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur. The Covington, Louisiana, native shot a 5-over 76.
Lisa Morrissett and Val Brennan are first and second alternate, respectively.
The U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur is September 10-15 at The Lakewood Club in Point Clear, Alabama.
