BROOKVILLE â€” The U.S. Amateur Golf Championship begins at 7 a.m. today, and Brookvilleâ€™s own C.G. Mercatoris will be playing it a second time.
â€śIt feels great,â€ť Mercatoris said. â€śAnytime you can get into the U.S. Amateur, itâ€™s probably the best amateur tournament in the country. Iâ€™m very excited.â€ť
Mercatoris, who competed in the U.S. Amateur in 2009, is looking to build upon his successes at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh.
As a member of the Class of 2011, Mercatoris received the Northeast Conference Menâ€™s Golfer of the Year award.
