Monday, August 2, 2010 | by Wolves continue to show well in amateur tournaments throughout the summer

Over the summer, many members of the Newberry College men's golf team have been participating in amateur tournaments around the country. The Newberry Sports Information Department is pleased to bring you this update.

Newberry rising junior Matthew Campbell (Rome, N.Y.) shot a blistering 11-under par to win the Saratoga Spa Collegiate Open in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on July 26-28. The three round tournament is part of the Collegiate Players Tour (CPT), a non-profit venture in its 17th year designed to provide summer golf competition to college-age men and women. Campbell racked up scores of 68, 68, and 69 for a stroke total of 205 at the par-72, 6,742-yard course.

Rising senior Daniel Stanley (Inman, S.C.) failed to qualify for the U.S. Amateur Championship by two strokes at the Piedmont Driving Club in Atlanta, Ga. on July 27-28. Stanley shot a 143 (74-69; +1) and finished in a tie for 14th in a field of 138.

Fellow rising senior Ben Lown (North Augusta, S.C.) also participated in the U.S. Amateur qualifying, but missed the cut after the tournament's first round. Lown shot an 80, 9-over par, and tied for 99th.

Lown and Stanley both qualified for the South Carolina Amateur earlier in the summer. Hosted at the Columbia Country Club in Blythewood, S.C., the 2010 South Carolina Amateur begins four rounds of competition on August 5. The tournament champion will be crowned on August 8.
