First held in 1899, the Western Amateur features one of the deepest and strongest fields in amateur golf, as well as the game’s most grueling format. Competition includes 18-hole stroke play rounds on Tuesday and Wednesday followed by a cut to the players with the low 44 scores and ties. Those who make the cut play 36 holes of stroke play on Thursday, with the low 16 advancing to match play.

The 2022 Western Amateur will feature one of the strongest fields ever, led by Thorbjornsen (Stanford), the defending champion and No. 5-ranked amateur in the world. The PING All-American Second Team selection made the Arnold Palmer Cup, qualified for the 2022 U.S. Open and received a sponsor’s exemption to play in this week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic on the PGA TOUR.

Sargent (Vanderbilt), the No. 4-ranked amateur and an All-American First Team selection, is also back after his runner-up finish a year ago. He’ll be joined by Greaser (North Carolina), who played in the Masters this year and made the cut at the U.S. Open; Travis Vick, who helped Texas to the NCAA Championship team title and finished as the low amateur at the 2022 U.S. Open; Ricky Castillo (Florida), who has made the Sweet 16 in three consecutive years; and standouts like Dylan Menante (Pepperdine), Michael Brennan (Wake Forest), David Ford (North Carolina) and Adrien Dumont De Chassart (Illinois).
