MT. PLEASANT, SC (June 21, 2017) - Mother nature did not corporate as day one of the Rice Planters Amateur hosted by Snee Farm Country Club was washed out. The heavy rains have forced the first round of the tournament to be pushed back until 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

The field for the 2017 edition includes among others Quade Cummins (Oklahoma), Michael Decker (Vanderbilt), Wes Artac (Texas Tech) and Wil Sheppard (2017 South Carolina commit).

Last year Philip Knowles took home the title by three shots after finishing 10-under. Knowles recently concluded his sophomore year at North Florida.

ABOUT THE Rice Planters Amateur

The Rice Planters Amateur was the inspiration of amateur golfer, Dick Horne. During his first Porter Cup at the Niagara Falls Country Club in 1973, Horne befriended the tournament's chairman Dick Harvey. Harvey encouraged a receptive Horne to develop his own southern tournament and, consequently, along with other Porter Cup officials, shared enough useful information to get Horne started in the South. The Rice Planters quickly grew to become one of the top amateur events in the country.

The Rice Planters is played over 54 holes of stroke play. While entries are by invitation only, the tournament typically holds a 90-player qualifier for the final five spots in the field.
