Cal State Stanislaus golfer Teddy Schrier will get another shot at the U.S. Amateur Championship this summer. The junior from Atwater has once again earned his way into the tournament after placing second at a qualifying event on Monday in Fresno.
Schrier shot a 141 in the 36-hole sectional qualifier at Fresno's Sunnyside Country Club to advance to play in the 2011 U.S. Amateur Championship on Aug. 22-28 at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis. He finished two shots behind winner Michael Weaver of Fresno, who is listed at No. 429 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.
After a 73 in the first round, Schrier rebounded with a tournament-best 3-under 68 to edge third-place finisher Jason Melvin by a stroke. Only the top two players from the tournament advanced.
This marks the second time in three summers that Schrier has qualified for the U.S. Amateurs. In 2009, he won a sectional event in Stockton to earn his first appearance.
Teammate Andre Navarro also played at Sunnyside with a 7-over 151, 19th-place finish.
