It’s time for the greatest men’s amateur golf championship in the world.
The 2023 U.S. Amateur started Monday at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. The field of 312 will play 36 holes of stroke play at Cherry Hills and Colorado Golf Club before the top 64 make match play, which begins Wednesday at Cherry Hills.
This is the 123rd U.S. Amateur, which began in 1895. There were a record 8,253 entries accepted for the championship. Cherry Hills has hosted five men’s major championships and two previous U.S. Amateurs, including in 1990 when Phil Mickelson won.
The final is set for Sunday.
Sam Bennett topped Ben Carr 1 up at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, to capture the title last year.
