A friend asked me what I was planning to write about in my yearly “Amateurs in the Experts” narrative now that “The Jinx”™ is finished.
Yes I trademarked “The Jinx”™, or thought long and hard about it before coming to the conclusion that Augusta National is equipped using a finely trained legal department and I’ve just Google and intermittent online service in my disposal. Not really a fair battle.
“The Jinx” naturally refers to the series of 28 consecutive years the U.S. Mid-Amateur winner was invited to compete at the Masters simply to neglect to create the 36-hole cut. A different way to state 28 years is annually because Augusta National first ensured a place into the Mid-Am champ. However, 12 weeks ago, Stewart Hagestad, a 25-year-old prospective hedge-fund director, nominated “The Jinx” from the face and also “The Jinx” blinked.
Never fear, yet. “The Jinx” may have finished, but “the optimistic narrative of a U.S. Mid-Amateur winner attempting to create the patrons at Augusta National and golf lovers everywhere proud” remains very much alive in the form of Matt Parziale.
The 30-year-old Parziale is a former mini-tour specialist turned firefighter out of Brockton, Mass.. A firefighter … playing the Experts (!?!) . Yep, that does not occur very frequently. Broadly, U.S. Mid-Amateur champs are inclined to be prospective hedge-fund-manager forms, or white-collar office men with versatility hours.
Parziale’s narrative has garnered lots of attention, such as from our own John Strege. On Monday, Parziale came to the press building to speak more about the media. He answered questions regarding his occupation, humbly downplaying the risk aspect he faces daily. Turns out, Parziale did seemingly make a concession for his job, taking a leave of absence from Brockton Ladder Company 1 recently months so he could ensure an on-the-job injury did not induce him to go on the DL to the biggest tournament of his life.
Safe to say no upcoming head-fund-manager kind had to request a leave of absence from his job to get fearing of tearing a cuticle with a binder clip.
The question now, of course, is if Parziale takes inspiration from Hagestad (a buddy of his about the mid-amateur circuit) and plays with his way into the weekend in Augusta. If he does not there is a good chance among the other five amateurs in the area does. Seven days in the previous eight years that a player has left the cut and shot home the non amateur decoration on Sunday.
Who is the very likely to combine Fred Ridley along with the newest Masters champ at Butler Cabin? Here is a glimpse in alphabetical order, in the candidates.The Jinx” has ever been connected to this U.S. Mid-Amateur winner, ago British infantry champs have fought to produce the Pros cut, also. Just three have handled the suggestion in the previous 30 years (Sergio Garcia at 1999, Matteo Manassero at 2010 and Romain Langasque at 2016, with Manassero’s T-36 function as best end). Ellis, a senior at Florida State, admits he’s played diverted this year, but he has still managed a career-best 71.35 typical along with a share of 2 individual names. It is a hunch, but states here his form will help him buck history and getting him sticking around to the weekend.Ghim was that the hard-luck runner-up last August in Riviera Country Club into Doc Redman, but University of Texas senior’s consolation awards included a place on the U.S. Walker Cup team and also this invitation to Augusta. He has played Augusta National several times this season in preparation for the event, writing copious notes at a yardage book. After the book went missing earlier this week (it inadvertently fell from caddie/dad Jeff’s caddie bib), there was a mild panic from the Ghim camp. It was thankfully discovered, however, on Tuesday. With it in hand, Ghim includes a fantastic chance of utilizing it via Sunday.The left-hander became the third golfer out of China to acquire the Asia Pacific Am, and he did it in pretty awesome fashion, moving birdie-eagle over the previous two holes to place a final 65 and choose the name. Lin has plenty of experience playing specialist events in Asia as a amateur, which ought to assist his nerves. He says he expects to utilize the week for a learning procedure because he prepares to visit the U.S. and play college golf at USC in the fall, but you have the feeling he is not here only to loosen up the encounter. His sneaky span and laid-back demeanor provide you reason to think he can claim low amateur honors.The present No. 1 ranked amateur in the world is a raw talent, accent in the brief term on uncooked, the very long term on gift. Niemann was going shine his game by playing golf at South Florida, but a academic testing snafu short-circuited his registration. As opposed to retake the examination, Niemann decided he would turn pro … until he needed to postpone that strategy when he won the Latin America Amateur name in January (he will make his debut in the Valero Texas Open second month). He has got experience playing at a big, overlooking the cut after playing his way to the U.S. Open at Erin Hills. The biggest issue now is whether distractions of turning pro as well as the glowing lights of playing Augusta conspire against him weekly.
