July 25, 2014
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Four University of Illinois golfers will play in the prestigious Western Amateur at The Beverly Country Club on Chicago's southwest side, July 29-Aug. 2. Fighting Illini Brian Campbell, Charlie Danielson, Nick Hardy and Dylan Meyer will tee it up against many of the world's top amateurs.
The 156-player field will play 18 holes of stroke play on July 29-30, after which a cut will be made to the low 44 scores and ties. The remaining players will play 36 holes of stroke play on July 31 to determine the low 16 finishers, which will then face off in match play on Aug. 1-2 to decide the champion.
Danielson played in the 2013 Western Amateur but did not make the cut. It is the first Western Amateur for the other three Illini.
