RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. — Loyola Marymount teammates Chase Nicolai and Cole Young were medalists by three shots at Tuesday's U.S. Amateur Four-Ball qualifier at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, which will host an NCAA regional men's championship in April.

Young, who is a member at The Farms, and Nicolai, of Long Beach, fed off of a string of six birdies in seven holes in the middle of their round to secure their ticket to their first USGA event.

The streak was sparked by a 50-foot putt made for birdie by Young on the 8th hole, followed by birdies on 9, 10, 11, 13, and 14. After parring the difficult, 470-yard par-four 17th, the duo birdied 18 to cap off the 64.

Coming in second place were four other teams at 67. After playing off to determine the remaining two spots, Jordan Nasser and Taylor Wood, as well as Ashwin Arasu and Sahith Theegala emerged as victors and will be headed to The Olympic Club in May.

The groups of Joe Benedetti and Scott Gibson, and John Fischer and Greg Padilla, despite five- under par 67s, will serve as first and second alternate, respectively.
