Caleb Manuel Competing at U.S. Junior Championship
Caleb Manuel of Topsham will be making his USGA Championship debut this week at the Inverness Club in Toledo, OH. The 17-year old member at Brunswick GC earned his spot in this event by earning medalist honors at a local qualifier in Stamford, CT last month, shooting 67 at Rockrimmon CC to lead all scorers.
Inverness has a storied history in American golf, having hosted six major championships, with four U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships. The club is often remembered for Bob Tway famously holing out a bunker shot on the final hole of the 1986 PGA Championship to beat Greg Norman by two strokes.
Manuel will tee off on Monday at 12:47 CDT and at 7:22 CDT on Tuesday. After 36 holes of stroke play, the field will be cut to the low 64 players who will advance to match play beginning on Wednesday.
