Cauley is medalist at Rio Pinar

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. — Bud Cauley finished at 10-under 134 to earn medalist honors at the U.S. Amateur qualifier at Rio Pinar Country Club.

Cauley was unable to play a practice round because he was in upstate New York last week, playing in the Porter Cup. After a first-round 67 at Niagara Falls Country Club, Cauley closed with 76-73 to tie for 55th.

“It was definitely nice to come here and play well to get a little momentum before (the Western Amateur),” he said.

With Walker Cup selections drawing near, Cauley is trying to regain some momentum.
