Summer golf has been good to Jackson Van Paris over the last two years. 

After winning the 2023 Sunnehanna Amateur, making the quarterfinals, and earning medalist honors at this tournament last year, Van Paris has now finished T15 at the 2024 Northeast Amateur and is a semifinalist this year at the North & South Men's Amateur Championship at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, N.C.

The Pinehurst native will take on the 2024 Sunnehanna Amateur champion Ben Warian in the second semifinal match, with Davis Ovard and Jack Turner facing off in the other semifinal match.

Van Paris is the No. 16 ranked golfer in the Golfweek/AmateurGolf.com World Rankings and the No. 2 seed in the match play portion this week.

Van Paris put on another impressive showing in the stroke play portion after firing a course record 9-under 61 on No. 4 last year and earning medalist honors, finishing one shot back of Kelly Chinn and earning the No. 2 seed.

To earn medalist honors, Chinn shot a first-round 4-under 67 on No. 8 and a second-round 2-under 68 on No. 2 to get to 6-under and finish one shot ahead of Van Paris, Garrett Risner, and Brycen Jones. Jones, Risner, and Van Paris finished stroke play at 5-under and T2.

Van Paris advanced to the round of 16 with a 3&2 win over Hunter Swanson. Along with Van Paris, the No. 2 seed, the No. 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 seeds all advanced to the round of 32.

26 golfers finished the stroke play portion at even par or better.
