Congratulations to John Augenstein of Vanderbilt Univ, the 2018 Players Amateur champion.  The 59th amateur in the world, Augenstein captured the Players Amateur in impressive fashion with a 4-stroke victory over the 16th-ranked player in the world, Andy Zhang.  As champion, Augenstein earned an exemption into the 2019 RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing. 

There are several levels of sponsorship that offer the opportunity to play in the Contestant-Amateur Shootout. It is a great opportunity to play golf with the best amateurs in the world and chance to create a relationship with a young golfer who could become a future PGA TOUR star.
