Dan Sullivan looks to defend Mid-Am title
April 12, 2018
Reigning title holder Dan Sullivan will try to become the first back-to-back SCGA Mid-Amateur champion since Tim Hogarth (2009-10) when play begins at 7:15 a.m. Monday at The Saticoy Club in the 2018 Mid-Am Championship.
Sullivan, who captured last year’s tournament by six strokes with a staggering score of 11-under par, is part of a formidable 84-person field.
Other former Mid-Amateur champions among the entrants include Corby Segal (2016), Jeff Wilson (2015, 2008), Ramie Sprinkling (2014), Robert Funk (2013, 2006) and John Pate (2000).
Hogarth, who is the only golfer to ever win the SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship four times (1999, 2007, 2009, 2010), is also in the field.
The SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship is open to members ages 25 and older with a Handicap Index of 5.4 and below. In the Championship, players compete over 54 holes of stroke play with the top 42 players and ties advancing after 36 holes to the final round.
Whomever wins the 2018 Mid-Am will earn a berth into the California Amateur Championship at La Costa Resort.
In addition, the top five finishers all earn spots in this year's SCGA Amateur Championship, while the top 10 earn exemptions into next year's SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship.
