Leahey qualifies for U.S. Mid-Amateur

Ryan Leahey of Orange has had quite a month.
First he qualified for the U.S. Amateur at New Haven Country Club back on Aug. 1.
Exactly one month later, Leahey shot a 2-under-par 70 at Tallwood CC in Hebron to qualify for the U.S. Mid-Amateur for the second straight year.
Paul Buttafuoco of Somers and Rudy Hermstadt of Waterbury shot 69 and 72, respectively, to also qualify.
The three players advance to the 31st U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship on Sept. 17-22 at Shadow Hawk Golf Club in Richmond, Texas.

State Mid-Amateur now begins Wednesday

The Connecticut State Golf Association’s 24th Mid-Amateur championship will now begin on Wednesday rather than Tuesday at The Farms Country Club in Wallingford due to the impact of Hurricane Irene.
The low 36 players and ties from Wednesday’s opening round will advance to the final 36 holes, now being held on Sept. 7. Thursday’s U.S. Mid-Amateur qualifier at Tallwood CC in Hebron would conflict with the conclusion of the state Mid-Amateur because players are entered in both events.
