The PLAYERS AMATEUR AT BERKELEY HALL
July 10-15, 2018
One of the Top Amateur Events in the Nation...
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 has earned an exemption into the 2019 RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing. We look forward to following him in next year's RBC Heritage.
The 19th annual Players Amateur, which returned to Berkeley Hall Club’s North Course on July 10-15, is recognized as one of the premier amateur events in the U.S. All participants compete for an exemption into the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR event.
The Players Amateur alumni have distinguished themselves in the world of professional golf. More than 30 are now playing on the PGA TOUR, including tour stars Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Rogers, Bill Haas, Lucas Glover, Ben Curtis, Camilo Villegas, Nick Watney, Kyle Stanley and more.
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 man who could become a future PGA TOUR star.
Since its inception, the driving force behind the Heritage Classic Foundation has been to improve lives. Every dollar of profit generated by the RBC Heritage and The Players Amateur is distributed to charitable organizations.
The tournament is open to the public and admission is free. For more information visit playersam.com.
