The 36-hole U.S. Amateur Qualifying Tournament on Thursday at Weymouth Country Club in Medina determined the two entrants and two alternates heading to the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey on August 15-21.

Ken Keller from Youngstown State and Drew Salyers from Indiana outplayed the field. After 36 holes, Keller finished at 10-under par and Salyers finished 8-under par. Both shot 66 (-6) for their second 18 holes.

After the first 18 holes, two Youngstown State Penguins were at the top of the leaderboard. Bryan Kordupel and Keller both shot 68 (-4). Kordupel recorded two birdies, two bogeys and two eagles in his first round to record the 68.

Tanner Grzegorczyk and Bill Williamson were tied for third place at 3-under par and Salyers, Sam Jean, Anthony Briggs and Zak Supelak were all tied in fifth place at 2-under par.

Once the second round got started, Keller made his move away from the field, making five birdies on the first six holes to jump out to 9-under par, a lead he would never relinquish.

“On the first hole, I made a little 5 foot slider for birdie and that felt really good and then I had maybe 10 or 15 feet on the next four and five holes and I felt really comfortable over all of them,” Keller said.

Keller added “I never really got tentative. I stayed committed and I stayed aggressive and it worked out. It felt good.”

Bryan Kordupel and Sam Jean went to a playoff for the first and second alternate spots after both shooting a 36-hole score of 7-under par. After three playoff holes, Sam Jean earned the first alternate spot.
