APA US Amateur is triple tough - 11-10-2019, 12:56 PM

Historically the US Amateur seems to get a regular group of naysayers who say the tournament is a joke because it offers no prize money. The final four this year are
Bobby Stoval fargo 703
Blake Baker Fargo 714
Abrin Schaad Fargo 738
Chris Gentile Fargo 664

finishing 5/6th
David Rowell fargo 687
Mike Leigh Fargo 693

Plus there are so many other great players who finished further up like Parks, Abernathy, etc. It would be interesting to see the fargorate of the entire board. Maybe others can point out the high fargos that were entered that I missed.

This event just keeps getting tougher and tougher. Congrats to whoever wins this, the event is incredibly stout for a no prize money amateur event.

I watched the stream the last two days and was impressed by the play. They weren’t perfect but I enjoyed watching. The only thing I would ask the APA is to institute a shot clock.

That would be some tough action to fade anywhere. Yikes. Looks like Parks is not going to repeat ?

I got ninth. Fargo of 639. Small number of scores to get that rating though. I lost to Rowell and Leigh by scores of 7-5 both matches

That's always been the case as long as I can remember.

I wonder if anyone knows how often that person cashes in the US Open?

Congrats on a great showing!

In the past, it was actually “winner gets free entry into a pro event of their choice.”

They always chose US Open because it had the steepest entry fee.

Player........... road line with 12.9 revo and 314/3
Break cue.... bk3
jump cue..... Fury
Case............ Molinari butterfly

If you live with one foot in the future and one in the past you'll piss all over the present.
