Off Campus: The Stretch Run
Pro Player vs. College Player. It does not happen very often, but can happen in the Georgia Cup - the annual match between the reigning U.S. Amateur champ and the regining Bristish Amateur champ at The Golf Club of Georgia’s Lakesise Course.
Colt Knost, who won the U.S. Amateur, defeated British Am titleholder Drew Weaver, 2 and 1 Wednesday afternoon. The U.S. champ leads the series, 6-5. Knost, the former SMU All-American who has conditional status on the Nationwide Tour, turned pro following last summer’s Walker Cup, forfeiting his spot at Augusta next week, leaving only Virginia Tech’s Weaver and Alabama’s Michael Thompson, the U.S. Amateur runner-up, as the lone college players in the field. Today, Weaver played Augusta National for the 12th time, but prior to the start of the Masters, he and his Hokie teammates wil play in the Administaff/Augusta State Invitational at the Champions Retreat Golf Club in nearby Evans, Ga. – Lance
