Local golfers come up short at USGA Mid-Am

Nathan Smith has won the United State Golf Association’s Mid-Am four times.

But the Brookville native and Pittsburgh resident missed qualifying for the match play competition after finishing stroke play at 6-over par 148 at Carolina Golf Club and Charlotte Country Club in Charlotte, N.C. on Sunday. Smith won in 2003, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Also missing the cut by a shot was McMurray native Chuck Nettles. Oakmont native Sean Knapp and Bethel Park’s Brett Young were also attempting to advance. Young finished 10-over and Knapp shot a 13-over.

Knapp was the 2017 USGA Senior Amateur champion and 2018 Senior Amateur runner-up.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
