Millard qualifies for U.S. Amateur

He finished one stroke behind Emiliano Grillo of Argentina in the qualifier at the Willow Creek course in Knoxville. Grillo and Millard have posted the two lowest scores in any of the national qualifying tournaments to date.
Millard also qualified for the prestigious tournament in 2008, and it marks the fifth year in a row a Middle Tennessee golfer has won the right to play in the U. S. Amateur. Graduating seniors Craig Smith (2006, 2007, 2009) and Kent Bulle (2007) have also qualified in the last half decade.
"I am proud of Jason, and happy for him," said Head Coach Whit Turnbow. "He will be my only senior this coming year, my Ole Steady. We are all hoping this will kick off a tremendous senior year for him."
The U. S. Amateur will be played August 23-29 at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington. Chambers Bay will also host the 2015 U. S. Open.
