Former Hurricane standout Adam McKenney earned an invite to play in the Georgia Professional Golfers' Association of America's (PGA) Georgia Open after firing a 3-under (69) qualifying round at Orchard Hills Golf Club in Newnan last week. GSW head golf coach Andrew Danna was a first alternate for the Open after shooting a 3-over (74) in his qualifiying round at Wilmington Island Club near Savannah.
The top 10 finishers at each of the six qualifying sites received an invite to participate in the Open at The Club at Savannah Harbor from August 5-8.
McKenney, who finished his collegiate career in 2009, collected five birdies in his qualifiying round and finished two strokes off the lead. He has played in five NGA Hooters Pro Tour tournaments this year.
Danna finished in a five-way tie for ninth place and earned the first alternate position after finishing third in a playoff. -- UPDATE 7/30 -- He will be joining McKenney in the tournament field.
