FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - After a successful showing at the Western Amateur Championship just over a week ago, University of Arkansas senior Sebastian Cappelen and sophomore Taylor Moore will look to carry that momentum into the oldest golf championship in the country, as they begin play at the 113th U.S. Amateur Championship on Monday held at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
Cappelen and Moore will each be making their second straight appearance at the U.S. Amateur and be among 312 players looking to advance through the two rounds of stroke play and into the field of 64 that will begin match play on Wednesday.
With such a large field, the stroke play portion will be split between The Country Club and Charles River Country Club on Monday and Tuesday. Cappelen will be the first to play on Monday, going off the 1st hole at The Country Club at 11:40 A.M. CT, while Moore will begin at Charles River CC at 12:55 p.m. CT on the 10th hole.
Both Cappelen and Moore advanced through stroke play and into the 16-player match play event at the 111th Western Amateur Championship held July 29-August 4, at the Alotian Club just outside of Little Rock. Cappelen made it to the semifinals while Moore fell in the first round. The duo was Arkansas' top two finishers in four events in 2012-13, including the SEC Championship.
A strong finish to his junior campaign that featured the SEC Individual title led into the start of a busy summer for Cappelen, who also took part in the Palmer Cup for Team Europe in June for third time in his career. Cappelen, who received an exemption into the U.S. Amateur due to his top 50 World Amateur ranking, will enter his senior year having already played in 36 collegiate tournaments with a 14 top 10s, including three wins, and a stroke average of 72.0 over 105 rounds.
Moore turned in a breakout freshman campaign in 2012-13, earning Co-SEC Freshman of the Year honors after producing a 73.6 stroke average as one of two players to participate in all 13 tournaments. Moore finished No. 129 in the Golfweek rankings thanks to six top 20s and three top 10s.
The U.S. Amateur is the oldest championship in the country, one day older than the U.S. Open. Past winners of the U.S. Amateur Championship include Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. This year's championship marks the sixth time the U.S. Amateur has been held at The Country Club and the first time it has ever been played at anything other than a par 71. The Country Club will play over 7,300 yards long this week as a par 70.
Each day of match play will be televised with the Golf Channel showing first, second and quarterfinal matches on Wednesday-Friday. Saturday's semifinal matches and Sunday's Championship will be shown on NBC from 3-5 p.m. CT.
