U.S. Amateur: TV Times, Schedule of Play from Riviera CC
PACIFIC PALISADES, California (Aug. 10, 2017) -- Two of the most storied clubs in California, and the United States for that matter, are hosting the 2017 U.S. Amateur. Both Riviera and Bel-Air Country Clubs will be used for the medal play qualifying portion of the championship, with Riviera hosting all matches until a champion is crowned on Sunday, August 20. One thing is for sure -- a new champion will hold the Havemeyer Trophy, since 2016 champion Curtis Luck of Australia is now a professional.
