Brandon Gillis Makes it to the Quarterfinals of U.S. Junior Amateur
Former Junior Tour Member Brandon Gillis turns heads at the U.S. Junior Amateur. Gillis, from Nashua, New Hampshire, has been a consistent player throughout his years on the Junior Tour. He recently played in our Junior PGA Championship and tied for second place with a two-day total score of 148 (72-76).
Gillis held his own down in Ooltewah, Tennessee at The Honors Course. The U.S. Junior Amateur is the most elite junior tournament in the world. Previous winners include Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth. Gillis made it through the Round of 64, 32, 16 and advanced to the Quarterfinals (the final 8) where he was defeated 4&2 by Min Woo Lee of Australia.
There is a bright future ahead for this local competitor. He is headed to play golf at Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We are very excited to watch as Gillis grows as a player and we wish him continued success!
