ALPHARETTA, GA (March 27, 2017) -- For the 20th time since The Georgia Cup began in 1998 the reigning U.S. Amateur Champion will take on the reigning British Amateur Champion the week before the Masters. The 18-hole match will be played at The Golf Club of Georgia on the Lakeside Course. This years match will feature U.S. Amateur winner Curtis Luck and British Amateur winner Scott Gregory.

Over the years the event has grown from a regional event into one that is recognized around the world. Along with being a world class competition the event is a rare viewing experience for the fans as they can walk the course unhindered by ropes.

Luck, who also won the 2016 Asia-Pacific Amateur, has been busy playing on the European Tour, teeing it up five-times and making three 36-hole cuts.

The 20-year-old made cuts at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (T23; -5), Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship (T49; -3) and ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth (T47; -4) where he eventually missed the 54-hole cut.

In 15 rounds on the European Tour since January Luck has turned in four sub-70 rounds with his best a 7-under 65 coming in the second round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

Early this month Luck made his PGA Tour debut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational where he was unfortunately disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard.

Along with winning the British Amateur last year Scott Gregory finished as the runner-up at the Spanish International Amateur and also reached the Round of 32 at the U.S. Amateur.

In 2017 Gregory has played well so far winning the New South Wales Amateur while also making a run to the Australian Men's Amateur Round of 16.
