Staying amateur

Monday, June 15, 2009

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Bronson Burgoon’s message was clear – he wants to make the U.S. Walker Cup team later this year.

“That’s why I’m not turning pro, “ said the recent Texas A&M graduate. “I hope Coach (Buddy Mariucci) knows that.”

Burgoon said he intends to play the Southern Amateur, U.S. Amateur and Western Amateur this summer.

A strong showing at the U.S. Open probably won’t hurt his cause either. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
