Goodman, Sides lead state contingent in U.S. Junior Amateur Championship

Kelly Chinn has a chance to join some elite company, including one of the greatest to ever play the game. Chinn, 18, of Great Falls, Va., who is headed to Duke University next month, carded a bogey-free, 8-under-par 64 on The Country Club of North Carolina’s Dogwood Course in Monday’s first round of stroke play of the 73rd U.S. Junior Amateur Championship.

Chinn, the 2018 U.S. Junior Amateur medalist, can join three-time champion Tiger Woods (1991-93), 1977 winner Willie Wood of Edmond and 2010 champ Jim Liu as a multiple medalist. He’d love to join them as a champion as well. In his two previous starts, he was eliminated in the Round of 32 (2018) at Baltusrol Golf Club and in the semifinals (2019) at Inverness Club. The championship was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.

His 64 on the 7,140-yard layout surpassed the competitive course record by Karl Vilips (a 65 in the 2017 Southern Amateur) and tied for the third-lowest round in U.S. Junior Amateur history behind Gavin Hall’s 62 in 2010 and the 63 posted by Brandon Mancheno in 2017.

Andrew Goodman of Norman led the six-player contingent of Oklahomans in the field on opening day, shooting even-par 71 good for a tie for 24th. William Sides of Tulsa shot 74 and was tied for 51st.

Will Hennessee of Tulsa shot 80, Kyle McLaughlin of Oklahoma City and Parker Sands of Edmond each shot 81 and Benton Manly of Tulsa an 82. All four would have to have exceptional second rounds to make the field of 64 which will advance to match play on Wednesday.

“Honestly today was about going out and playing some golf,” said Chinn, who was a U.S. Amateur Four-Ball medalist with partner David Ford in May at Chambers Bay, where they lost in the quarterfinals. “I am not really focused on being medalist or anything. I have learned that in match play it doesn’t matter what seed you are. You just have to get into match play. The higher you go the lower seed you play and the more comfortable you will be and there’s less pressure.”

On Tuesday, Chinn will play the 7,164-yard, par-71 Cardinal Course, where Ford posted the best score in Round 1, a 4-under 67. After an early bogey on No. 12, his second hole of the day (players started on Nos. 1 and 11 on Cardinal), Ford, a lefty headed to the University of North Carolina, played 5-under golf over the last 16 holes.

Both the Dogwood and Cardinal courses at CCNC are being used in stroke play with the U.S. Junior Amateur field expanding for the first time from 156 to 264 competitors. The Dogwood will be used for all match-play rounds.

While the players didn’t have to deal with sweltering temperatures, both the morning and afternoon waves dealt with weather suspensions totaling 100 minutes due to heavy rain.
