Tringale, Uihlein final two U.S. Walker Cup picks
Tringale, a first-team All-American who graduated last spring from Georgia Tech, and Uihlein, a sophomore at Oklahoma State, both made the match play portion of this week's U.S. Amateur at Southern Hills. Tringale lost in the third round to David Lingmerth, while Uihlein advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to Charlie Holland.
Tringale was a qualifier for the U.S. Open this past summer at Bethpage. "It's a huge satisfaction," he said Sunday. "I've worked for this two years, designed my life around achieving this goal, and it's pretty special. It's definitely worth the sacrifices and hard work. I thought I had a good chance, but you never really know. I was thrilled when I got the call."
Uihlein had top-15 finishes this summer at the Sunnehanna Amateur, Northeast Amateur, Southern Amateur and Porter Cup.
Tim Jackson and U.S. Amateur runner-up Ben Martin are the alternates for the team.
