Georgian Grizzlies men's golfer Matt Lemay will compete in the U.S. Open qualifier event at the prestigious Beacon Hall Golf Club on Monday in Aurora, ON.
The event is the first of a two-step qualifier for the 117th U.S. Open Championship which will take place in June. The top five in the field of Monday's local qualifier will advance to one of the ten sectional qualifiers that take place on June 5th in various parts of the United States.
One year ago, Lemay made it through the local qualifier and competed at the second-step sectional round.
This past season at Georgian, the Golf Management student won the bronze medal at the 2016 PING CCAA Golf National Championships and helped lead the Grizzlies men's team to a silver medal at the OCAA Championships where he was also named to the OCAA All-Ontario Team.
Georgian Grizzlies golf team alumnus Blake Ulrich will also compete at the qualifier.
For more information on the event visit Golf Canada's website where Lemay is recognized as one of the notables playing at the tournament.
Lemay will rejoin his Grizzlies teammates later this month as Georgian's men's and women's golf teams will compete at 2017 Canadian University/College Championship from May 29th to June 1st at the Tangle Creek Golf Club in Barrie, ON.
Conducted by Golf Canada, the tournament will be hosted by Georgian College and serves as the qualifier for the World University Golf Championship.
