BROOKLINE, Mass. – Mississippi State senior Chad Ramey will tee it up in the 113th U.S. Amateur Championship on Aug. 12-18 at the Country Club of Brookline.

Monday and Tuesday will see 36 holes of stroke play with 312 golfers vying for only 64 spots in the match play rounds that begin Wednesday.

The Fulton, Miss., native will tee off at 11:45 a.m. CST, with fellow Bulldog Joe Sakulpolphaisan as his caddy.

Ramey qualified for the U.S. Amateur after posting a 66 and 69 in a 36-hole qualifier back on June 25 at the Seneca Golf Course in Louisville, Ky. The senior Bulldog is coming off one of the best seasons in Mississippi State golf history after winning SEC Player of the Week twice and being named to the First Team All-SEC.

The Country Club at Brookline and the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa., are the only two clubs to have hosted the U.S. Amateur six times. The U.S. Amateur is the oldest golf championship in the country.

Updates will be provided on the Mississippi State men’s golf Twitter account, @HailStateMG, and Facebook page,
