MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Brookville native Nathan Smith will join Todd White in trying to defend their U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship starting Saturday at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y.
Smith and White won last year’s inaugural Four-Ball Championship at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
The duo, who are paired with George and Steve Mena, will begin play at 7:54 a.m. Saturday on the West Course, the home of five U.S. Opens before continuing play at 11:18 a.m. Sunday on the East Course.
Those two rounds are stroke play with the lowest 32 sides (out of 128) advancing to match play, which will be held on the East Course starting Monday and concluding with the semifinals and 18-hole championship match Wednesday. The final two days of the tournament will be televised on FS1.
Four-ball consists of two-person sides with each member of a side playing their own ball and the better score counting as the team’s score for the hole.
