RESULTS: 8th U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualifier – Cleveland

Lorenzo Pinili and Drew Miller, 2023 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualfying
Lorenzo Pinili and Drew Miller, medalists at 2023 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualfying.

Drew Miller and Lorenzo Pinili birdied their final hole to finish at 8-under par and earn medalist honors in the 8th U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Qualifier at Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton.

“Out the gate we started with an eagle,” Pinili said. “So that got us off to a good start, we were 4-under through five.” Miller added, “We really played good when the other was plying bad. We were up and down, good together, and good as a team.”

Two team finished one shot back, tied at 7-under par after 18 holes, and with only two qualifying spots up for grabs a playoff was required. It was a doozy.

John Angelo and Marcus Carano earned their third straight trip to the Four-Ball Championship, beating Andrew Bailey and Kevin Carlin on the seventh playoff hole with a 30-foot putt from Carano.

“We haven’t played a lot of great golf this summer, so today was the day that it finally clicked for us,” Carano said. “Happy to get one more birdie and send everyone home.” Angelo added “We didn’t make a birdie that we didn’t need.”

The two qualifying teams will head to the Kiawah Island Club in South Carolina from May 20-24, 2023 for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball.

Connor Doria made a hole-in-one, the third of his golf career, on the par-3 ninth hole from 190 yards with a six iron.
