The Kentucky Amateur Series is comprised of six one-day events providing net and gross competition at venues spread out across the Commonwealth. Points are awarded to top finishers in each division, and the top point recipients compete in the Series Championship.
After a long morning, with two rain delays, play finally wrapped up for the Championship match at Standard Country Club. Standard’s 18-hole course is considered to be one the best in the Louisville area and is renowned for its tight Zoysia fairways and smooth bent grass greens, proving both challenging and exciting for today’s golfers.
