Two NDNU Graduates Qualify for U.S. Amateur Golf Tournament
Belmont, CA, July 29, 2008 — Two recent graduates of Notre Dame de Namur University, Kory Storer and Mike Prescott have qualified to compete in the U.S. Amateur golf tournament, scheduled to begin August 18 in Pinehurst, NC.
Both graduated this past May, Storer, 22, with a degree in Business Administration and Prescott, 23, with a degree in Communication. They both qualified for the U.S. Amateur by tying for second with scores of even-par 144 at a qualifying tournament held at the Peninsula Golf Club course in San Mateo, CA. For Storer, this will be his second trip to the U.S. Amateur. He qualified for the tournament in 2006.
“We’re excited for both Kory and Mike,” said NDNU athletic director Josh Doody. “They both have worked very hard to achieve this milestone and both represented this program and their school very well while they were students here.”
The two will join a field of more than 300 amateur golfers at Pinehurst Golf and Country Club for the tournament which will be held August 18-24. In order to even participate in the qualifying tournament, a golfer has to have a handicap index of 2.4 or better.
