UC Davis golf: Aggies redshirt Jeremy Sanchez earns U.S. Amateur Championship berth

By Jason Spencer, UC Davis News Service

EL MACERO >> Jeremy Sanchez has yet to play his first official round of golf for the UC Davis men’s golf team at El Macero Country Club — the Aggies’ home course — but he’s already put a memory in the bank by qualifying for next month’s U.S. Amateur Championship during qualifying for the national championship on Monday.

Sanchez, a junior from San Mateo by way of Chabot College, redshirted during the 2015-16 season. However, he achieved greatness at El Macero Country Club by finishing tied for second with Joshua McCarthy of Danville and Charles Osborne of Reno, Nevada, at 7 under.

Only the top three players earned berths for the U.S. Amateur so Sanchez, McCarthy and Osborne engaged in a playoff with Sanchez and McCarthy emerging victorious. Christian Banke of Danville took home first place at 8 under. Sanchez had rounds of 2-under 70 and 5-under 67 to help secure his spot.

It was a strong day for the Aggies’ program which had four players break par and finish in the top 10. Evan Knight, Ryan Han and Jesse Bratz each posted 5-under scores while Ben Corfee was a shot back at 4 under. Han won a playoff to become the second alternate.

Sanchez is the second UC Davis player to qualify for the U.S. Amateur Championship in the last week, joining redshirt freshman Louie Chen who qualified at Bayonet Golf Course in Seaside.

Sanchez had six birdies in his second round, including four on the back nine which featured consecutive birdies on the 14th through 16th holes. He had three birdies in his first round.

The 116th U.S. Amateur Championship will be held Aug. 15-21 at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Michigan.

UC Davis begins its 2016-17 season on Sept. 10-11 at the Rod Myers Invitational at Duke.
