For top amateur golfers, compiling a summer schedule can be challenging. So many tournaments, so few weeks.
Next summer, the choices will be even tougher.
Two of the nation’s top amateur tournaments are moving their playing dates. The Sunnehanna Amateur will be played a week later than its normal early June slot as the first major summer event, and the Porter Cup will move up a week in July.
That, coupled with the U.S. Amateur moving up a week starting next summer, means some high-profile tournaments will conflict with one another.
“It’s a different landscape now for the independent national amateur tournaments,” said Steve Denn, tournament director of the Porter Cup.
