The College of Charleston men’s golf program might be entering its first year in the CAA, but the Cougars have already made some news this off-season. On Wednesday, the school announced that rising senior Alex Ellis became the second member of the golf team to qualify for the U.S. Amateur Championship.
The left-handed Ellis, a native of Austin, Texas, not only qualifies for the second time in as many years, but also assures that Charleston will have two players in the field for the second straight year.
“For the second year in a row, I am very excited to have two players represent the College of Charleston in the U.S. Amateur Championship with the best 312 players in the world,” CofC head coach Mark McEntire said. “It shows that our program is committed to doing the right things to help our players get better and be able to play on such a big stage year-in and year-out.”
Hudson carded rounds of 67 and 69 to qualify at Odessa Country Club in Odessa, Texas, on June 24th, while Ellis notched rounds of 72 and 73 at the Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.
