ATHENS, Ga. --- Five players with connections to the Georgia golf program will be participating this week in the United States Amateur Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

Rising senior Mookie DeMoss, rising junior Lee McCoy, incoming freshman Zach Healy and former Bulldogs Butler Melnyk and Keith Mitchell have qualified for the event, which will run Monday through Sunday.

Melnyk (St. Simons), Mitchell (Cleveland, Tenn.) and McCoy (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) won their U.S. Amateur qualifying tournaments, while Healy came in third in Peachtree Corners and DeMoss placed fifth in Eatonton.

The field of 312 players will play 18 holes of stroke play on Monday and Tuesday, after which the field will be cut to the low 64. Six rounds of match play begin on Wednesday and the championship concludes with a scheduled 36-hole championship match on Sunday.

The Golf Channel will air first-round matches on Wednesday from 4-6 p.m., second- and third-round matches on Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and quarterfinal matches on Friday from 8:30-10:30 p.m. NBC will show the semifinals Saturday from 4-6 p.m. and the championship match on Sunday from 4-6 p.m.

Vinny Giles is the only Bulldog to win the U.S. Amateur, accomplishing the feat in 1972. Melnyk's father, Steve, won the U.S. Amateur in 1969, holding off runner-up Giles.
