Gana Tee’s Off at British Amateur Championship

Gana Tee’s Off at British Amateur Championship

Kent, United Kingdom – Lynn University men's golfer Toto Gana is one of 288 competitors from 40 countries in the field for the 122nd Amateur Championship, held at Royal St. George's and Prince's.  The Amateur Championship takes place from June 19-24.

The Santiago, Chile, native earned an invite to one of the oldest amateur tournaments in the world by virtue of his victory at the 2017 Latin American Championship.  The reward to the winner of the 122nd Amateur Championship books a place in the 146th British Open at Royal Birkdale in July, the 2018 US Open at Shinnecock and, by tradition, an invitation to play in the 2018 Masters Tournament.

A victory at the LAAC started a wild ride for Gana.  He would go on to compete in the 2017 Masters Tournament at Augusta National and help Lynn reach the NCAA Division II National Championship for the fifth consecutive year.

Gana's freshman season with the Fighting Knights was impressive as he posted a team-best 72.33 stroke average while also logging three top-10 finishes.  Lynn ended the season as the NCAA Division II National Runner-Up, with the freshman All-American posting a 3-0-0 record in match play.
