| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Former Golden Eagle and Marquette graduate Nathan Colson finished fourth at the U.S. Amateur qualifier held at Oconomowoc Golf Club on Monday, July 23, and is currently an alternate for the U.S. Amateur Championship, Aug. 13-19, at famed Cherry Hills Country Club located outside Denver.

This summer marks the 112th annual Championship. Mike Van Sickle was the last MU golfer to earn a spot in the event. Van Sickle advanced to the round of 16 in the match play portion of the 109th U.S. Amateur played at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla., back in 2009, when he finished higher than current PGA Tour professionals Bud Cauley, Cameron Tringale and Rickie Fowler.
