In an effort to attract more U.S. Amateur participants, the Cardinal Amateur dates have been moved. Traditionally, the tournament is played the week before the U.S. Amateur, but the final round of the Cardinal falls on the reporting date for the U.S. Am.
The 2013 Cardinal Amateur will be played three weeks earlier than normal. It will be conducted July 19-21 instead of Aug. 2-4. The event will be played at the Pete Dye-designed Cardinal Golf & Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.
Past Cardinal Amateur participants include Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner, David Duval, Bill Haas, and Tim Clark, who still holds the tournament record of 15 under par.
