Colin Chapman, the 2011 Carolina AM Champion, has confirmed he will defend his title at the 2012 Carolina AM Golf Championship, the metro area’s most prestigious Amateur golf event.
“Even though I won the Carolina AM last year, I couldn’t try for the Wyndham because I also qualified for the U.S. Amateur and had to play there. This year I plan to win again, and make it into The Wyndham Championship, Chapman declared !”
Charles Humphreys, Director of the Carolina AM, said, “We are excited and privileged to renew our partnership with the historic Wyndham Championship of Greensboro. This year we will send our top 2 finishers to the pre-qualifier! What an outstanding rare opportunity for 2 regional Amateur golfers to have a chance to play in a PGA Tour golf tournament. This doesn’t happen often.”
The Carolina AM is a two day 36 hole stroke play golf tournament for Amateurs only. To qualify, Amateurs must have a 6.3 handicap index or less. The event will be hosted by Providence Country Club in Charlotte, NC. The date is Saturday July 21st and Sunday July 22nd . The field is limited to the first 100 players.
