Young Spieth impressing at Byron Nelson Classic; Begay in U.S. Sectional Qualifier at Gold Mtn.

“See Tomorrow’s Stars Today.”

That’s the slogan for the U.S. Junior Amateur that will be played July 18-23 at Gold Mountain. Last time I looked, one of those young stars, Jordan Spieth, was tied for 16th at the PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson Classic. The 17-year-old Texan, winner of the 2009 U.S. Junior, will be among those coming to Bremerton in July. He’ll be attending his high school graduation later tonight.

In other golf news, the U.S. Sectional Qualifier on June 6 at Gold Mountain includes Notah Begay, Troy Merritt, Jason Allred, ex-Huskies Derek Berg, Corey Prugh and Brock Mackenzie, current Huskies Chris Williams and Charlie Hughes. Begay was Tiger Woods’ teammate at Stanford and has four second-place finishes on the PGA Tour but has struggled in recent years. Here’s the full list of names and tee times:
