U.S. Am pairings announced

Pairings for the U.S. Amateur were released today. Here are some notable starting times:

• Walker Cup hopeful Dan Woltman will tee off alongside team member Morgan Hoffmann at 7:30 a.m. in the first group off No. 1 at Southern Hills. Former Oklahoma assistant Phillip Bryan, who made the semifinals at this year’s U.S. Amateur Public Links at the University of Oklahoma Golf Club, is the group’s third member.

• When Buddy Marucci tees off at 9:30 a.m. from Cedar Ridge’s 10th tee with Jose Toledo and Kyle Kopsick, he’ll have a good view of a player he probably wishes was eligiblie for the Walker Cup - NCAA champ Matt Hill, who’s teeing off in the group ahead of him. Hill’s older brother, Graham, tees off one hour in front of him.

Teeing off at 9:10 a.m. from Cedar Ridge’s 10th hole are U.S. Amateur Public Links champ Brad Benjamin and Aaron Stewart, the son of Payne Stewart.

• Two players vying for spots on the U.S. Walker Cup team – Bronson Burgoon and Wesley Bryan – will tee off with Brett Kelpin at 1:55 p.m. off of Cedar Ridge’s 10th tee. Two other Walker Cup hopefuls, Peter Uihlein and Cameron Tringale, tee off at 1:05 and 1:15, respectively, off of Cedar Ridge’s first hole.

• Cameron Peck, the 2008 U.S. Junior champ, will play alongside last year’s medalist, Robbie Fillmore, and Christopher Marsh at 2:35 p.m. off of Cedar Ridge’s 10th tee. Rickie Fowler, playing his final U.S. Amateur, is in the group ahead of them.
